Bringing your best friend – you know, the one with four legs – with you to Las Vegas? A popular downtown restaurant now welcomes you and your dog for brunch.
Glutton at 616 E. Carson Ave. [(702) 366-0623] is the latest Vegas eatery to allow dogs and their owners to dine together on the restaurant’s shaded patio. The pooch-and-owner brunch is called Bark and Bites and is offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Bowls of water and dog treats will be served to canine visitors during the brunch hours, a news release says.
For humans, the offerings are more interesting.
They include a wild mushroom and goat cheese omelette ($15); a peaches and cream waffle topped with whipped cream, almond streusel and salted caramel and bourbon sauce ($10); and a breakfast salad with a soft poached egg, bacon and duck fat potatoes ($14).
TimeOut Las Vegas ranks Glutton among downtown’s top five restaurants.
Other downtown options include Park on Fremont [506 Fremont St., (702) 834-3160], with dining in a lush garden, and Triple George Grill [201 N. 3rd St., (702) 384-2761] in the up-and-coming Downtown 3rd neighborhood.
I couldn’t find any restaurants along the Strip that allow pets. However, a couple of nearby options are Coffee Pub [2800 W. Sahara, across the street from Palace Station, (702) 367-1913)] and Crown & Anchor [1350 E. Tropicana Ave., (702) 739-8676.
Finding a place for dogs to sleep is easier. For example, eight of Caesars Entertainment’s resorts on or near the Strip participate in its PetStay program.
