BARDOT Brasserie located inside the Aria and is a must visit during any trip to Las Vegas. Whether you are looking for a romantic night out, great drinks before seeing Zarkana or just feel like indulging in one of the best meals of your life the BARDOT Brassiere can fill all of these needs.
To create BARDOT’s menu, Chef Mina and Executive Chef Joshua Smith merged their travels to Paris with exceptional culinary techniques to develop an array of imaginative dishes.
Trust me when I say you will not be disappointed with the amazing menu that Chef Mina and Executive Chef Smith created! Each course is divine!
From the moment you walk in the front entrance of BARDOT Brassiere you know you are going to have a wonderful experience. The restaurant is simply gorgeous!
Chef Mina pays homage to classic French cuisine presenting an exquisite array of signature dishes that celebrate the iconic cafe culture of Paris.
Tarte Provencal with swiss chard, goat cheese, pine nuts, market apples is a must try! The combination of goat cheese and market apples was delicious. The pine nuts add just a bit of crunch to each bite.
Traditional Onion Soup Gratin is a gourmet masterpiece that guests can customize with Perigord truffles, braised oxtail and a soft-poached egg.
From the first bite of the Onion Soup Gratin my dear Husband was telling me it was the most amazing onion soup he has ever had. He is a big fan of onion soups and has them any chance he can. The servers brought the next course to the table and tried to clear the onion soup from my Husband. He asked if he could keep it along with the next course it was so good he didn't want to miss a bite of it.
Escargot BARDOT with warm hazelnuts, chartreuse butter, served in a puff pastry was perfection!
After trying the Parisian Gnocchi with wild mushrooms, goat cheese, roasted garlic I am ruined for all other Gnocchi. This Gnocchi was divine, delicious, amazing, and every other adjective you can think of.
I told the chef that he had ruined me for gnocci when we were talking during dinner. I am not sure he believed me but let me tell you all it is true! OH MY! I would consider another trip to Las Vegas just for dinner at BARDOT to enjoy the Parisian Gnocchi again!
Please make sure you arrive at BARDOT hungry and ready to enjoy one of the best meals of your life!
Side dishes include this mac and cheese that is a beautiful creation! Perfectly lined up macaroni is covered in delicious cheese and you may not want to share it with your dining partners.
Remember when I said you need to arrive hungry to BARDOT? Well make sure you do not enjoy the first few courses so much that you miss out on dessert. Dessert at BARDOT is a work of art...
For dessert, Chefs Mina and Smith took the traditional French Macaron and cooked up a large-scale presentation of the ultra-decadent sweet, drizzled with chocolate sauce.
This chocolate macaron is sinful, delicious, decadent, divine, and a must-try! The sweet smell of chocolate as your server pours the molten chocolate over the top is glorious! I may have swooned a bit over this dessert.
Lemon fans will swoon over BARDOT’s Lemon Meringue Tart, prepared with market citrus and fresh berries!
Fans of the classic French desserts will marvel at the Mille Fueille, a caramelized puff pastry with vanilla patisserie.
