Holsteins’ Gameday Brunch packs fun and flavor

Try the chilaquiles at Holsteins at the Cosmopolitan.

With all the brunch options on the Strip, it can be an overwhelming task to choose the right spot for your weekend remedy. For mornings with a late start, consider nostalgic comfort over fancy fine dining and take your crew to Holsteins Shakes and Buns. The burger haven’s new Gameday Brunch concept, unveiled in October, feels like it’s based on the diners of yore, with enough swag to make it worthy of the always-hip Cosmopolitan.

Classic Americana meets Las Vegas with the Billionaire Steak—a New York steak served atop of a pile of golden fingerling potatoes, bits of fried foie gras nuggets, two eggs any style and a velvety, delectable truffle Hollandaise—it’s so good you’ll want to put it on everything.

It isn’t brunch without French toast, and Holsteins doesn’t disappoint with its simple spin on the morning staple. Topped with candied peanuts, bacon bits, bourbon maple syrup and whipped cream, this dish is big enough to share, but you don’t have to.

This brunch really stands out with its egg sandwich. How dare we order one of these bad boys when Eggslut is directly across the way? Well, you could wait in line for an hour, or you could come to Holsteins and order this fully-loaded ’wich, jam-packed with eggs, bacon, chunks of potato, melted American cheese, tomato confit, grilled onions and mayo. Somehow Holsteins has managed to make this burger-less sandwich taste like a burger, and that’s a game-day victory. Holsteins at the Cosmopolitan, 702-698-7940; Gameday Brunch Saturday & Sunday 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
