In a saturated market like Las Vegas it is hard to have a product in any category that really stands tall amongst all competition, yet since the early part of 2016 South Rainbow Boulevard has been home to two such places, the first being Deyree Alberganti’s world-class Gelato at Gelatology and the second Jonathan Pluvinet’s Croissants, Quiches and laminated Pastries at Rosallie Le French Café.

Having written about Rosallie since almost day one, anything that can be done to spread the word of an independent baker outperforming the massive commercial kitchens of Jean-Phillipe or Bouchon a benefit to the entire Valley, and especially locals, it was with family in town that yet another stop was made at the restaurant which continues to grow its charm by added features and flourishes of interior decorating with each visit, the ‘conference room’ now converted into a cozy seating area complete with some handmade furniture while the main dining room’s Wine Vault is now well stocked and complimented by items such as antique hooks, a small owl perched on a post and some flowers along the walls.

Recently doing some late night Wine and Cheese events, and continuing to experiment with classic French Pastries in the kitchen, it was just minutes after opening that a part of four entered the restaurant that would soon begin to accumulate patrons in a small trickle of traffic, drink orders placed with Chef Pluivinet left to decide just how he wanted to show his talents this time, the newly launched Rose Latte a truly elegant drink to kick things off next to his hand-blended Espresso and two Hot Chocolates, one for the kid and one for the kid at heart.

Having already tasted everything on both the sweet and savory menu during previous visits, and attempting best to cater to the tastes of out-of-town guests who had been lusting over photos at Rosallie for the better part of a year, the meal started savory with two of Jonathan’s flaky Tartines including the creamy Normandie with Brie and Onions as well as the Bacon, Egg and Cheese American alongside Chef Pluvinet’s textbook Quiche with perfect, golden pastry stacked in thinly sliced Potatoes, crispy Pork and Tartiflette Cheese that plays well off the aromatic clarified Onions.

Never satisfied with his current selection – the Chocolate not ‘shiny’ enough, a cookie not the right texture or something ‘too sweet,’ pastries at Rosallie followed the typical situation of too many, even though most would probably like to taste all of them, the Almond and Butter Croissants still looming head-and-shoulders over the competition with a shattering break and flaky insides while the Pistachio Croissant occasionally offered as a special was unique enough that Jonathan should probably consider adding it permanently…or perhaps experimenting with other fun things that still manage to fit within Rosallie’s traditional concept.

Receiving a dense Truffle with each Hot Chocolate, the soft and smooth Bon Bons available for $1 each and a veritable steal compared to smaller versions at Chocolate specialist Jin-Ju down the way, more Cocoa goodness was found in the Almond and Chocolate Opera Cake with flaky layers dividing layers of Ganache, the newly launched Frosted Brownie with Pearl Sugar another tasty item that is quite large for just $3 and probably best shared.

Always well off ordering a Palmier, as crisp and light as any in France or Belgium with less sugar than the sort one might see in Mexico City, it was with two Fruit pastries that breakfast came to a conclusion, the Cream-filled Danish topped with glazed Strawberries even more flaky and delicate than the Apple Cinnamon version offered up front on the counter while the Lemon Meringue Tart is stuffed with housemade Curd with a toasted Vanilla cloud on top for less than five bucks.
