Dining in Las Vegas- 7/4/12 - 7/6/12

Long's & Hong's wedding

The next day - Lunch


Walking around....

Our bellies are full and taking a little stroll back to Caesar's Palace is about a 10/15 minutes back which is a great way to digest!  On our way back we have to go  through the new Crystals complex located next to city Center.

Inside Crystals center there are lots of luxury shops such as Louis Vutton, Christian Dior, etc...

This is the largest Louis Vuitton store in West with 3 stories filled with luxurious items from fine jewelries, Men's section, and Women's shoes, clothes, and purses.

Exhibition inside Crystals celebrates the extraordinary career of Roberto Cavalli and some of the designer’s most memorable red carpet moments. The gowns are placed at the Crystals shopping center, where Roberto Cavalli has a store there.

Of course Hoa could not resist taking a picture of a Ferrari on display!

Now we are on the main strip with the Bellagio in the back ground.  The Fountains of Bellagio is a vast, choreographed water feature with performances set to light and music.

The show takes place every 30 minutes in the afternoons and early evenings, and every 15 minutes from 8 pm to midnight.

I am now in Caesar's palace posing in front of Central ( pronounced sen-TRAL) the new restaurant by Michel Richard, a James Beard award-winning chef.

Central serves American favorites with a French twist all day and all night.

Unfortunately, we did not have enough time so I'll give it a try on my next visit.




This place is huge with 300 seats for casual dining but in a stylish atmosphere. Located adjacent to the lobby in Caesars Palace.


Francois Payard's pastries & coffee shop inside Caesar's Palace.


 François Payard is an award-winning Pastry Chef. His shop is beautifully designed with a chocolate shop, a pastry shop and a traditional dining room serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The chocolate and pastry shops make up the largest area of the Patisserie and offer a variety of Chef Payard's signature chocolates, desserts, sandwiches and pastries. Also located in this area are made-to-order crepes, coffee drinks and homemade ice-creams and sorbets.

At $7.00 a pop, his pastries are not cheap but they are the best and worth every penny!  To me Payard is gold standard of Pastries!



Since I was still full and I wanted something light I selected an assortment of 6 Macarons for desserts. 

They are selling as hot cakes!  I sat there for less than an hour and by the time I got back they sold most of them.... Pretty amazing.


Not cheap, 6 macarons for $10 but they are really good with a hot cup of coffee.

They are chewy, airy, and they just melt in your mouth.  Payard’s macarons are made from ground almonds, egg whites, and sugar and are filled with a variety of  flavored ganache.

 François Payard’s inventive flavors like pistachio, passion fruit and raspberry lychee are so good!


Breakfast the next morning

Last night after having dessert at Payard I saw that they also offer crepes so I told Hoa to go back there for breakfast!

We shared  the Crepe Madame and I opted for Swiss cheese instead of cheddar and sunny side up egg instead of scrambled egg.

This is a huge portion even after splitting in half with Hoa.  The crepe was very good but also very filling!

Hoa and I we also shared a pain au chocolat which was excellent, fluffy, crispy on the outside, rich and perfect to start out day!
