Having twice visited Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro for Brunch, once several years prior to calling Las Vegas home, it was as a party of five that another enjoyable afternoon was spent on the Restaurant’s outdoor patio with sun shining bright and a dog-in-tow.

Toqued by Chef JL Carrera, and largely unchanged across the past ten years, it was after greetings from a born-and-raised Las Vegan that choices were debated, a sloppy Latte presented to one guest while Tanzania Peaberry Coffee in a French Press lived up to its $8 tab in terms of taste.

Now closed in Hollywood, but still doing well in Sin City despite no less than three Celebrity Steakhouses within the Venetian-Palazzo complex, it was while guests conversed that the first of three courses arrived, Housemade Housemade Granola & Greek Yogurt simple but well-portioned while a side of Potatoes with Peppers and Onions plus Morels’ Avocado Toast each went the extra mile to be better than what guests will find elsewhere.

Somewhat lackluster in terms of $22 Chicken & Waffles, the Tenders a bit dry while their support is plain compared to what Yardbird, HeXX or The Stove are serving, far better value is found in an $18 Croque or $14 Crepe, each with plenty of good Ham plus Gruyère Cheese and the former adding further with a fried Egg atop Sauce Mornay.

Well-known for their Fromagerie, a blend of Cheeses making “Almost Famous Mac & Cheese” a Brunch and Dinner *must,* it is thanks to aged Comté that Morels’ “Farm Fresh Egg Veggie Omelet” succeeds while Crispy Organic Bacon and Fish & Chips featuring Sole also stand out.

Far quieter than the patio at Mon Ami Gabi, and refined without feeling stuffy, Dessert arrived along with a Double Espresso on Ice, the “Banana & Strawberry Crepes” better labeled than during 2018’s Dinner and thus creating appropriate expectations even if it isn’t as delicious as Morels’ housemade Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches or better-than-Bouchon Stuffed French Toast.

FOUR STARS: Easily overlooked on a property with four Steakhouses and a French Bistro boasting Thomas Keller’s name, Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro still has a lot of things going for it besides the Strip view, and for those seeking Breakfast or Brunch on-Strip without a crowd this may just qualify as a secret hidden in plain view.

RECOMMENDED: Country Potatoes, Croque Madame, Ham & Gruyere Crepe, Almost Famous Mac & Cheese, Almost Famous Mac & Cheese, Banana & Mascarpone Stuffed French Toast.

AVOID: Cornflake Crusted Chicken & Waffles.

TIP: Open 8am daily and pet-friendly on the patio. Keep eyes tuned to https://www.palazzo.com/restaurants/morels-steakhouse-bistro.html for events such as “Meet the Wine Maker.”

WHAT THE STARS MEAN: 5 World Class, 4 Excellent, 3 Good, 2 Fair, 1 Poor.
