MOzen Bistro and Border Grill (tie)

If you’re thinking bacon and eggs, think again. MOzen Bistro at the Mandarin Oriental caters to many Asian guests, and the restaurant has a team of chefs from India, China and Japan to complement chef Vivek Rawat. There is a distinctly Asian cast to this brunch, served noon-2:30 p.m. Sundays.

You can make up a bento box composed of six dishes, order the restaurant’s terrific Indian-style chicken, have XO fried rice, and even top-grade sushi, all for one set price ($48).

Still, who could ignore the deal at Border Grill at Mandalay Bay, an all-you-can-eat brunch served poolside for $25?

Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, a.k.a. the “Too Hot Tamales,” serve dishes such as green corn tamales, Yucatan eggs Benedict topped with pork cooked in a banana leaf, and guava empanadas, plus a dozen more pan-Latino creations. Feel like free-flowing $5 mimosas? We thought as much.

A night for chefs, by chefs

By Xania V. Woodman

The night was Sept. 7, 2001. The culinary community of Las Vegas and beyond came together in a ballroom at the Rio to support one of its own. Napa restaurant’s chef Jean-Louis Palladin had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and it wasn’t looking good. Upon his death just two months later, The New York Times honored Palladin as “a chef’s chef whose boundless creativity and relentless pursuit of the best and freshest ingredients set an example for countless other cooks.” His inspiration lives on today in the lives he personally touched as well as in the culinary scene at large.
