Border Grill

In a city famous for brunch, choosing one might seem a tad arbitrary. We adore, for example, chef Carlos Guía’s Cajun-tinged brunch at Wynn’s The Country Club, and the dim-sum fusion with Western breakfast fare at the Fountains Brunch in Bellagio’s Jasmine. But the winner and still champion is the Weekend Brunch at Border Grill. Those “Too Hot Tamales”—chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken—do an all-you-can-eat menu of individually plated and served dishes from south of the border, incredible stuff such as green-corn tamales and guava-filled empanadas to start, as well as traditional fare such as huevos rancheros, pancakes and fluffy biscuits. And then comes the exclamation point: hearty dishes of short-rib hash and eggs, and Peruvian shrimp and grits. If you have the stamina, bottomless mimosas will cost you just $5 more.
