Las Vegas has no shortage of brunch places, but the new offerings at Rick Moonen’s RM Seafood are worth the trip to Mandalay Bay. There are many standout seafood-based dishes on the menu, including the True North house-cured salmon sandwiched between local arugula and bagel chips, topped with a breaded soft-boiled egg and drizzled with crème fraîche and dill.
“The dish is a play on a Scottish egg and a traditional lox bagel,” according to the culinary team at RM Seafood. “Being that it is nearly impossible to create a New York–style bagel in Vegas because of our water and weather, we put the bagel ‘crust’ on the egg. We softly poach local eggs from Desert Bloom Eco Farm in Tecopa, California, for five minutes, ice shock them to cool quickly to 40 degrees, then bread them with herbs and caper berries.”
When you cut into the egg, warm yolk oozes out, dressing the sharp arugula, briny capers and salty salmon. One bite with the soft latke and you’ll be glad you got out of bed this morning. 9:30 a.m.–3 p.m., Sat-Sun., rmseafood.com
