Dessert, not breakfast, is the most important meal of the day—especially if it takes the form of one of Jean-Phillipe Maury’s carefully crafted chocolates, cookies, cakes and crepes (pictured below). Indulge in his confectioner’s art at his restaurants at the Bellagio and Aria hotels.
If catching Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood isn’t thrilling enough, strap into the El Loco roller coaster at Adventuredome.

The Mason Street Courtyard at Mesquite’s Eureka Hotel combines the best of Chinese, Hawaiian, Italian and American cuisines in hearty dishes. Along with Char siu pork, pot stickers and penne are such clever items as the Bagel Burger with chive cream cheese and the traditional Hawaiian Loco Moco.
