It's almost a ritual now.
Whenever I'm in a city with a Bouchon (and yes, with this one, I've been to all three), I never cease to stop by and pick up a sweet little snack. It's hard to pick one favorite (virtually everything I've tried there has been absolutely delectable), but I usually get a TKO (Thomas Keller Oreo) or a macaron, though I also love their bouchons and chocolate croissants.
The one in Las Vegas is inside the Venetian. Yes, this is the same casino that has the replica St. Mark's Square, a river inside, and the singing gondola rides. It's quite a sight.
The Bouchon Bakery is actually separate from all those fun things, and instead is located right next to the Phantom of the Opera theater entrance.
We passed by this area during CES because the High Performance Audio section happened to be nearby.
Love TKOs (winner of my own little "oreo" showdown)
I also love macarons, so I got both!!! Vanilla macaron is still my favorite.
Bryan wanted to try the carrot cake "sandwich?? cupcake?" cakewich? since he's typically a huge fan of carrot cake.
We loved the chocolate croissant from our visit to the one in Napa Valley, so we got it again. It was just like we remembered! The chocolate inside is dark, rich, and not too sweet - just the way we like it.
Just for fun - a few madeleines!
