The Venetian has French brunch on lock

Yes, this is breakfast. At least at Bouchon.

Let’s be real: Bouchon brunch is all you need. Thomas Keller’s epic bistro is the rare place where a memorable meal is somehow understated, even if you open with California Sterling white sturgeon caviar or the Grand Plateau seafood sampler of a whole lobster, oysters, shrimp, clams, mussels and crab. From exquisite pastry and bread to the roasted chicken with bacon-chive waffle, there’s no such thing as disappointment here (Friday-Sunday, 7 a.m.-2 p.m., 702-414-6200).

But the Venetian won’t stop, and it added Daniel Boulud’s DB Brasserie to the brunch mix last year (Saturday & Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m., 702-430-1235). Besides the bottomless mimosas and Bellinis, DB keeps it French with Alsatian tarte flambée, charcuterie and classic onion soup, plus quiche Forestiere laced with Gruyere and crispy duck hash with Yukon potatoes. There’s a deadly new Cubano sandwich on the menu, too.

Meanwhile, just a few steps away in Palazzo’s lobby, the often overlooked Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro has been brunching it up in stellar fashion for seven years now (Saturday & Sunday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m., 702-607-6333), offering a tasty assortment ranging from classic cheese fondue to salad Niçoise to banana-mascarpone French toast to smoked salmon crepes.
