Expert review of Jasmine
The Bellagio's posh Chinese restaurant, perched on the lakeside overlooking the fountains and the Eiffel Tower, is normally out of my budget, but the Sunday brunch they introduced in January 2010 is one of the best ways to treat yourself that I can think of. Wonderfully good Chinese food (technically it's a buffet, but don't let that put you off) in a genteel setting, with views of the fountains that are no less than extraordinary. It's one of the top things you should do in Vegas.
The brunch buffet isn't as big as other buffets, but boy is it good. You get a platter of pastries at the table to start with (don't go overboard on this), and then dishes such as Peking duck are brought round to the table and sliced for you there and then. For the rest of the food, there's a shellfish bar, a selection of salads, sushi, cooked meats (the chorizo sausage is wonderful) and a whole room full of desserts. It's of a far, far superior standard to what you think of as buffet food, too.
Very quiet and refined. People dress up here, and the place is pretty hushed. There are plenty of families, but if you bring children, make sure they're quiet! It's more somewhere for families with older children and couples to come.
Discreet but they're watching your every move, to fill your coffee cup, bring over more Peking duck and the like. It's polite but assured service.
On the lakeside of the Bellagio. There are floor-to-ceiling windows looking out at the fountains and a big balcony as well (although you may get sprayed if you venture outside - you're that close). From this angle, you get the Eiffel Tower in shot too - perfect!
Brunch costs US$65 per person but you won't need to eat for the rest of the day and it's genuinely worth it.
You don't need to book ahead, but it's worth doing so in order to reserve a table by the windows, which will make for an unforgettable experience.
