On our last night in Las Vegas, Howard and I treated ourselves to Bouchon. We made the reservation the day before and decided on an early dinner. We had a long flight back home the next day!

So we were there 5-10 minutes before our reservation and got to wait at the bar because dinner service hadn't begun yet. I was extremely excited as I kept an eye on their clock. On the dot, our hostess for the night, Amy came over to greet the "Chang's." I guess we'll play along that I am Mrs. Chang! =)

In my opinion, I think we got the best seat in the house! We were near the centre and had a view of the fountain in the courtyard:

After we ordered, we got to nibble on pistachios and fresh baked bread. As a fun aside, in Chinese, pistachio translates to "happy nuts." Yes, we were happy!

We're going to apologize for the low lighting, but hopefully you can still see the dishes we tried! First up, we ordered the Soupe du Jour, which was celery portage.

We also tried the Confit de Canard which consisted of crispy duck leg confit, honey-preserved huckleberries, wilted spinach with juniper berry, with a foie gras vinaigrette.

As our main dishes, Howard had the Steak Bouchon. A New York strip steak with Yukon gold potato rösti, broccolini, and sauce béarnaise.

I had the Steak Frites. A pan-seared prime flatiron steak with caramelized shallots, maître d'hôtel butter, and French fries. It turns out that most people don't finish the mountain of fries. I think we ate through maybe 3/4 of it!

We really want to thank Amy for being so great, helpful, and funny. Thank you to the chefs for the wonderful meal, we wish we had the ability to cook like you! If you're ever in Las Vegas, we highly recommend that you try Bouchon!

Wait, we're not done! There is also the bakery on the main floor of the Venetian Hotel!

That's right, you can pick up baked goodies and desserts here without going to the restaurant!

Are you interested in a financier, bouchon, or madeline?

Or some macarons, eclairs, shortbread, or cookies?

I think you know what I zoned in on. Red velvet and Valrhona chocolate cupcakes!

Valrhona chocolate please! =)
