Creating new Holiday traditions, year two of Christmas brunch at Hexx with Le Cirque planned for dinner; it was as a party of three that seats were taken in the large dining room directly across from Bellagio, a four course meal prepared by Matt Piekarski with excellent service, as always, from the team led by Ari Stotland.

Hearing that the patio was a bit chilly, even tall heating posts no match for 42°F with a light breeze, it was at a sizable four-top at room’s center that the group sat as a motley looking fellow across the aisle boomed loud, yet pleasant, fueled by Bottomless Mimosas – the spirit of Christmas trumpeted overhead with Seasonal music replacing the typical IHeartRadio stuff while the NBA played on television.

Making one special request, but otherwise ordering a la carte, it was after greetings from Ari followed by Chef Piekarski that the meal got underway, the requisite Fruit Plate starting things off with a wider selection than ever while three half-portions of Chilaquiles came through creamy yet crunchy with Jalapenos along the side allowing everyone to adjust the heat to their tastes.

Previously passing on the Breakfast Sandwich, but inspired by a beautiful one landing at a neighboring table, the Ham and Cheese Croissant at Hexx has undergone a substantial upgrade by way of pastries from Bouchon Bakery plus White Cheddar now nearing 5-years old, the off-menu Carrot Cake Pancakes made via Special Request still Sin City’s best while the Chocolate Waffle ate something like a Lava Cake with crisp edges and a soft, gooey center.

Never one to pass on desserts, particularly with Hexx Chocolate and Pastry Chef Carol Garcia involved, it was with two Cookies plus one of Bouchon’s Almond Croissants that the meal moved on, the “Cookie” idea kicked up several notches by a double layer of crispy Almond Flour wrapped around Chocolate Mousse plus a Blondie that was more like a “Pizookie” with 72% Chocolate chunks infusing the buttery Cake beneath Whipped Cream and High Road’s frozen spin on America’s favorite Cookie.

FIVE STARS: Understandably not a local’s spot, the prices and scene tailored to the Strip, Hexx remains one of the rare Las Vegas Boulevard properties where there is far more than meets the eye in terms of the concept, the service always good while the kitchen continues to execute on a level far higher than it needs to.

RECOMMENDED: Fruit Plate, Ham and Cheese Croissant, Carrot Cake Pancakes, Warm Cookie Sundae.

AVOID: N/A.

TIP: The online Dessert Menu is woefully out of date. Stop in to see what Chef Garcia and her team are up to.

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