Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie (Las Vegas – Aria and Bellagio)

If you’re someone who has a sweet tooth and find yourself in Vegas, you should check out Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie.  The last time we were here, Jean-Philippe Maury only had the one pâtisserie location (in the Bellagio) which was known for their impressive chocolate fountain.

Not to mention all of the beautiful pastries and goodies.

With the opening of CityCenter, Jean-Philippe expanded with a new location in the Aria (conveniently located right outside the guest elevators).  As the Executive Pastry Chef at the Aria now, all items sold in both shops are produced in his 6,000 square foot kitchen in the Aria and delivered to the Bellagio location several times a day.

This impressively huge chocolate dragon (complete with rotating flowers) can be found just outside the Aria shop.

The Aria location has a dining area attached to the shop and is a great place to stop for breakfast – they open at 6am and close at midnight (whereas the Bellagio location opens a little later at 7am).

We stopped by for breakfast one morning and grabbed the Croque Monsieur ($8.75) and the Spinach Quiche ($8.25).

The quiche was deliciously filled with olives, peppers, and spinach.

The croque monsieur is basically a grilled ham and cheese sandwich but they use a mornay sauce and the sandwich had a nice crunchy outer crust with a soft cheezy filling.  The only thing that would make this better would have been if they added a fried egg on top (to make it a croque madame).

We picked up a few items go to including Biscotti ($3.80) made with hazelnut, lemon and orange zest, and anise seeds as well as the Sable Diamants ($6.00 for 9 pieces) cookies.
