Mon Ami Gabi – Paris Hotel (Las Vegas): Outdoor Dining
Mon Ami Gabi is one of the more well-known restaurants located in Las Vegas. With the looming Eiffel Tower replica overhead of the outdoor patio, it’s not difficult to imagine that you’re in a street-side café in Paris (well, aside from the countless drove of tourists walking along the sidewalk). You’ve also got a view of the Bellagio fountains across the street (while the fountain show isn’t scheduled to start until 3pm during the weekday, you’ll occasionally get to see an impromptu display when they test the fountains – something that surprised us).
I’ve mentioned before that I love to eat the freshly-baked crusty bread at French restaurants and Mon Ami Gabi is no different. You get this nice mini baguette with ample amounts of creamy butter… so good!
We started wiht the Scallops Gratinées ($17.95) with fennel, onion, and mussel cream. Loved the plump scallops with the baked-on cheese skirt.
The full order of Mussels Marinière ($25.95) comes with frites and is prepared with white wine and herbs. There were so many plump mussels here! It’s actually quite filling and the broth is great for dipping your fries.
Last up was the Seafood Crêpe($20.95) with seared scallops, shrimp, peas, and cream. Again, a deceivingly filling dish with well-prepared seafood.
This is a pretty busy location and there’s usually a separate waiting list to dine on the outdoor patio (but it’s worth it – think we had to wait about 10 mins for a seat to open up so the wait wasn’t too bad). Keep in mind that it can get rather warm out on the patio due to the strong desert sun (even in December).
