What To Do In Vegas

We love Vegas, and truthfully even more so than Toronto. Which brings me to several questions we get asked time and time again: "Why Vegas? What do you do there? Don't you guys ever go anywhere else?!" In short, we LOVE it there! Vegas is like our second home, like a cottage, plus it's only a 4 hour flight away. While some people head off to Niagara or New York for a break, we prefer Sin … [Read more...]

Bouchon Again: Vegas

Hey guys! So we were just digging through our archives and found more pics of these Bouchon goodies from Vegas. Honestly, if you're anywhere near the Venetian hotel then we highly suggest you make the trip to this bakery. They actually have three different locations within the hotel, so it's very accessible for all those cravings. We hope these pictures do them justice because we're not … [Read more...]

Canaletto at Venetian: Vegas

We'll never get tired of St. Mark's Square, and we're so thankful we found yet another delicious restaurant there at the Venetian! We were instantly drawn to Canaletto at first glance: dining on cobble street stones underneath the sky. While we feel that Otto provides a quieter and more romantic atmosphere, Canaletto in contrast seems to have larger tables for families and always people … [Read more...]

Mon Ami Gabi at Paris: Vegas

Mon Ami Gabi, FINALLY! This is a really popular spot on the strip because of its centralized location, outdoor patio, and awesome view of the Bellagio fountains - who doesn't love a free show with their meal? With the intense afternoon Vegas sun, we would definitely recommend a table within the shaded roof part of the patio, which still opens directly to the outdoors. Otherwise you'll be … [Read more...]

Afternoon Tea at Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas

Ever since enjoying afternoon tea at the Prince of Wales in Niagara-On-The-Lake, we've been looking for the next best place for scones and a cup of relaxation. It was refreshing to see that in the heart of party-central Las Vegas there existed this tranquility at the Mandarin Oriental. This hotel, like Vdara, doesn't have a casino and the lobby is uniquely situated on the upper level. … [Read more...]

é by José Andrés at Jaleo, Cosmopolitan: Vegas

This was truly a culinary tasting adventure: 23 Spanish tapas-styled dishes spanning over 2 hours. And the best part - every one of them incorporated some aspect of molecular gastronomy; a science-infused dinner for the curious at heart! It was unlike any experience we had ever had before. They do require you to complete their reservation request form and send it back to them at least 2 … [Read more...]

Mizumi at Wynn: Vegas

In Toronto, we are fortunate enough to have a food culture that is diverse and multicultural. When it comes to Japanese food, we are always on the lookout for delicious and fresh sushi and sashimi. While we have had great experiences at Tomo Sushi and Yuzu, we wanted to see what types of dishes Vegas had to offer. After watching Mr. Wynn's infomercial several times, we decided to settle … [Read more...]

Sugar & Ice at Wynn: Vegas

Sugar & Ice is a great place for an afternoon snack, and definitely one that can satisfy any gelato craving! It was sooooooo good there, and just what we needed to start our day of shopping. The decor follows the whimsical theme at Wynn, with mismatched clocks on the wall and plenty of candies in apothecary jars. And true to the advertisement in front of the store, you get to enjoy your … [Read more...]

SW Steakhouse at Wynn: Vegas

The SW in SW Steakhouse follows Steve Wynn's initials, because they "couldn't think of a better name" according to his hotel infomercials. You definitely need to reserve a table at this spot because it is PACKED on weekends! Even though we booked well in advance, we still had to wait a good half hour before being seated. If you're lucky enough to be seated outdoors by the Lake of Dreams, … [Read more...]

The Buffet at Wynn: Vegas

The Wynn hotel is gorgeous inside and out - they are so attentive to detail! When you walk in, you're instantly greeted by a whimsical butterfly theme and hanging balls of flowers (we still haven't figured out whether those are real or not). And if you follow the path to The Buffet (yeah, they named it The Buffet), you'll be greeted by a seating area unlike any other. I start … [Read more...]
