Spring was in the air at the Palazzo and Bellagio hotels with their overflowing waterfalls and impressive florals in full bloom.  We began our day with brunch at Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bistro and ended it with dinner at Michael Mina and Cirque du Soleil’s “O.”Palazzo

Bouchon felt cozy despite being in an overwhelmingly large space.  Our meal was rich and tasty, and our server was genuinely lovely.  Perhaps our only regret was not trying the corned beef and cabbage special in honor of St. Patrick’s day. Keep reading below for more.


After browsing the shops and watching some March Madness, we made our way to Bellagio where we were greeted by a stunning array of blooming tulips, freesia, and much much more.  Spring is definitely here.Bellagio


Dinner at Michael Mina was incredibly satisfying.  While we enjoyed RN74 on a few occasions in Seattle, this experience was something else.  Selecting the chef’s tasting menu allowed us to sample his best known dishes – an ahi tuna tartare {ahi flown in from Hawaii daily} with explosive flavor and a most heavenly lobster pot pie.  The five different desserts were all decadently delicious.  What an indulgence!
