Spring in Las Vegas means it’s time for big brunch plans and one of the Strip’s hottest spots for weekend lunch has resumed its legendary offering. Pcs (702.698.7790) at The Cosmopolitan is known for combining a lively, social atmosphere with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys, as well as chef Stephen Hopcraft’s deliciously rich take on classic brunch dishes. One of the favorites, available on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., is a truffled Wagyu iron-top steak with a fried egg and crispy potatoes on a buttered brioche. Lobster and Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise Caviar; spicy spicy chicken and waffles with maple barbecue sauce; and cinnamon French toast with fresh berries and cream cheese glaze.
Brunch is a big deal off the Strip, too, and one of the up and coming favorites at Summerlin has live entertainment added to the mix. Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jing (725.735.7172) in Downtown Summerlin serves honey French toast, steak, and eggs from Creekstone Farms New York, and eggs and avocado toast alongside seafood towers and bottle service, while DJs and live musicians keep the energy levels high.
Another hangout in Downtown Summerlin has unveiled a brand new menu for spring. Manufacturer & Finder (702.586.8255) is just as popular for its coffee beverages as it is for its innovative Latin American cuisine, a soulful menu that now includes an empanada breakfast frying pan, Spanish cioppino with octopus, prawns, calamari and scallops, and the ranchero burger with pork belly and contains coriander Lime crema. M&F also has a location on Main Street in downtown Las Vegas.

Nittaya’s secret kitchen (702.360.8885) near the corner of West Lake Mead and Rampart Boulevards now has a beautifully expansive dining room and kitchen, while the homely, well-balanced cuisine – such as crispy pork belly, coconut prawns, and kao soi curry noodles – is equally As always, it feels exclusive and special.
If Italian is your fancy, it might be a good time to experience the full spectrum of this type of food in one great place: the Wynn and Encore resorts. Start with bellinis and carpaccio in the famous Cipriani (702.342.9600) with a glamorous Las Vegas location on Wynn Plaza. Experience incomparable seafood and pasta at Sea coast (702.770.3305), or opt for more casual dishes like lasagna, creamy burrata, and wood-stone pizzas at Allegro (702.770.2040). Or a party like the chairman of the board once did Sinatra (702.770.5320), an elegant space highlighted by sophisticated versions of classic Italian dishes such as meatballs, caprese, spaghetti and mussels or veal sparmigiana.

Jamie Tran is a current season contestant for Top Chef and is headquartered in southwest Las Vegas Black sheep (702.954.3998) where Vietnamese flavors have the influence but nothing is out of bounds.
