Bouchon Bakery Las Vegas Review

Anytime I'm by the Time Warner Center in NYC, I can't not stop by Bouchon Bakery to get a TKO or some other pastry treats. So when the GF's family and I were in Vegas, I knew I had to bring them by Bouchon Bakery at the Venetian.

Pro-Tip: If it's your first time, you will get lost trying to find this small outpost so make sure you leave enough time if you've got other events on the agenda! After asking 4 different staff members and getting 4 different answers for two different floors, I ultimately lucked my way unto the Bakery. If you're walking towards the guest elevators, do NOT go up them. Instead, you'll find Bouchon Bakery literally behind the escalators.

Pistachio Macaron [$3.50]

I started off with a few macarons. Perfectly textured with a nice chew, the pistachio imparted a slightly nutty flavor which was nice. 

Salted Caramel Macaron [$3.50]

You can't go wrong with the salted caramel, which had great depth and richness.

Better Nutter [$3.25]

The better nutter was better than your average Nutter Butter indeed. Within crisply thin cookies was a gorgeously creamy and light peanut butter that wasn't too intense. Pass the milk please! 

TKO [$3.25]

But really we were here for the TKO. Better than your average Oreo, the juxtaposition of the creme and the bitter chocolate notes from the cookies brought me back to childhood indeed. 

The pricing is admittedly a bit high, but you're paying for technique and precision from the pastry kitchen of Thomas Keller, one of America's notable chefs. So if you've got a sweet tooth and need to satiate that craving, head on over to Bouchon Bakery - if you can find it!
