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.

As Seen on TV!

By Xania Woodman

Combining ingredients that are both popular and typical of Middle Eastern and Moroccan cuisine, Paymon’s general manager Jeff Ecker created a drink that pairs well with the tradition of smoking hookah. With delicate flavors such as mango, coconut, orange and cherry, Ecker notes that it appeals to the female set as well. The cocktail was also featured in 2002 on Rachael Ray’s show, $40 a Day. It has remained on the menu ever since, a testament to the enduring success of this match made in the Mediterranean.
