Brunch is the most important meal of the week at many of the country’s best restaurants, wildly creative places with menus that riff on all-over-the-map flavors. Every weekend can be a delicious journey with a kimchi Benedict at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in Miami, or Burmese pork stew at Tasty n Sons in Portland, or clams with grits and chorizo at Woodberry Kitchen in Baltimore, or corned beef-cheek hash at M.B. Post in LA, or pecan pie French toast at Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn. The point of all these widely acclaimed restaurants is bold flavors and no boundaries in a relaxed setting, which is what you’ll also find at Las Vegas’ own DW Bistro.
This food is as aggressive and fun as anything you’ll find across the country. This is Jamaica meets New Mexico, a culinary combo so potent and fresh that it feels distinctly American. Jerk fried chicken and waffles. Slow-cooked pork simmered in New Mexico chilies with eggs and rice. Vegas is lucky it gets to enjoy this adventure every weekend. And like all the other aforementioned fantastic brunch restaurants, DW Bistro makes it feel like it’s not a big deal. But it is. 6115 S. Fort Apache Road #112, 702-527-5200. Saturday & Sunday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
