Let them eat brunch!

The Bellagio’s new Fountains Brunch serves up plentiful food and a view

Even the Bellagio’s stunning fountains may not be able to draw your attention from this sumptuous spread.

Slowly but surely, Vegas is developing a cadre of Sunday brunches that go well beyond the standard buffet fare. These are decadent affairs housed in top restaurants like Simon and Country Club Grill that serve up well-curated meals to satisfy just about any craving your Sunday morning can produce.

One recent addition to the lineup is the Bellagio’s Fountains Brunch at Jasmine, which opened quietly in late October. This lakeside affair at chef Philip Lo’s Hong Kong-style Cantonese restaurant runs $55 and offers a smorgasbord of dishes firmly straddling the line between breakfast and lunch.

On the traditional side, a shellfish bar features Alaskan Red King Crab, oysters on the half shell and dill-and-vodka-cured lox. An egg station turns out made-to-order omelets and a carving station slices servings of Peking-style duck and house-made sausage.

From there, Fountains Brunch marches into less-charted territory with dishes like lemongrass panna cotta with crystallized wasabi and Kobe beef roulade with enoki mushrooms and miso-butterscotch dressing, with a few dim sum staples available as well.

If there’s still room to loosen your belt, finish things off with the chocolate fondue while you watch the Bellagio’s always majestic fountains put on a show.

Fountains Brunch at Jasmine. At the Bellagio. Sunday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Reservations are suggested. 693-7223.
