SoHo comes to Vegas (and India too)

LAS VEGAS – I’m living it up at the Bellagio and starting tonight, headed to the Waldorf Astoria, during this “excellent adventure” to Sin City. I checked out the casinos but have preferred to read a book (“Educated: A Memoir” by Tara Westover) at the pool instead.

The public spaces at the Bellagio are remarkable – and the highlight of the hotel, at least for me.

This fall the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Garden features a colorful fall display celebrating India: complete with elephants, tigers, fountains and flowers. A live webcam to the fall display is HERE. (Note: The webcam title is mislabeled).

Alongside the exhibit, the Bellagio has imported the popular vintage-style New York SoHo restaurant, Sadelle’s, to Las Vegas.

Sadelle’s is recreated in exquisite detail, ranging from “colorful pastels and bespoke touches transporting diners to a grand café along an old European boulevard” to the restaurant’s legendary menu.

The menu includes bagels and fresh smoked-fish platters, triple-decker sandwiches, salads and all-day caviar offerings.

I enjoyed the smoked-fish platter one morning for breakfast. It was a glorious presentation (plated in a tower, no less), complete with a bagel, thinly sliced tomato, cucumber and capers.

“Overlooking the Bellagio Conservatory, Sadelle’s brings an elevated perspective to all-day dining in Las Vegas,” as the Bellagio puts it. “The restaurant’s stunning locale, Ken Fulk design, fun vibe and legendary menu make it a destination experience for tourists and locals.” A video is here:
