My husband and I escaped to Las Vegas for the weekend (without children). For breakfast on Saturday we ate at Thomas Keller’s restaurant “Bouchon” in the Venetian Hotel. There I ordered their Eggs Benedict Florentine, which was their special for the day. I must say it was VERY SPECIAL! I love to cook and I consider myself a good cook, but after taking my first bite of their eggs I realized something: I cannot cook eggs (like that!) They were the best I had ever eaten EVER! I am getting pretty sappy about this love affair I have with eggs and especially eggs benedict. I have a soft spot in my heart for it! Their potatoes were also not half bad — not over seasoned, crisp on outside and soft on inside.
If ever in Las Vegas and you have the opportunity to eat at Bouchon, please do! It’s not cheap, but it is OH so good!
