Restaurant Review: Aria Patisserie

Details: Located in the Aria, at 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89158. Official site is https://aria.mgmresorts.com/en/restaurants/aria-patisserie.html

Score: 6.8/10

The Patisserie is located just outside the entrance to the Aria hotel rooms and as such, is the most convenient place to get something to eat if you’re staying in the Aria. It’s also likely the cheapest place to get something quick to eat.

In regards to the hours of this place, the left hand side which handles the individual items on display (sandwiches, croissants, that sort of thing) is open twenty-four hours I think. The right hand side handles bigger items like cakes and is open only during normal business hours… I think.

I came by right before heading to the airport and got a ham and cheese on croissant. Pretty damn good though it cost around ten dollars. It had some kind of spread on it that was delicious.

Overall, this place is convenient, relatively cheap, and most importantly, fast. It’s not a destination spot, but a necessary spot for anyone staying at the Aria.

The primary website leaves out how much this place costs on a weekend night. It’s about $57.00. Whether or not it’s worth it depends on a number of factors. I thought it was just okay considering the price.

Food Stall Review: La Taqueria

Details: Located at 3480 S Maryland Pkwy #104, Las Vegas, NV 89169. Official site is http://boulevardmall.com/directory/la-taqueria/

Score: 6.3/10

I was in the mall for some Escape the Room and decided to eat here. No idea why we chose to eat at this specific Mexican place since there are a couple in the food court.

The mall is a standard American mall in that it’s kind of empty and slightly depressing. The food court was also mostly empty.

I ordered a beef burrito for about seven or eight dollars. It came with some chips. There’s a topping bar with sauces and stuff. Noteworthy is that the red sauce is surprisingly spicy, in a good way I guess.

Overall, the food was all right. This place wasn’t bad or shady, but not going to get no Michelin stars.

Restaurant Review: Bruxie

Details: Located at 3782 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Official site is https://bruxie.com/

Score: 6.8/10

Bruxie is a fast food restaurant that focuses on fried chicken and waffles, in many forms. You can get sandwiches and plates of chicken, waffles and other breakfast items.

I ordered The Boss, which was a fried chicken sandwich that cost about thirteen dollars. It came with some fries and was pretty good. I also had an Arnold Palmer for I think about five something dollars.

The specific location I went to was on the Las Vegas strip. It’s a fairly modern location, but there are limited seats that people will fight over.

Overall, this was decent place for a chicken sandwich. It’s a little pricey though considering the chicken sandwich war going on right now between major fast food chains.
