Mon Ami Gabi (Paris) – Everything Magical Comes To An End

by Franklin on November 17, 2011

Mon Ami Gabi, can easily be one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas.  It is centrally located in the middle of Vegas, a very important thing.  The atmosphere is nice — right outside your window you can enjoy your meal with the view of the Bellagio fountains.  I remember having dinner here with my girlfriend.  It was a perfect sunset, we were seated smack dab in the middle of the fountains and enjoying our dinner.  It was a romantic and amazing meal. The food is outstanding, and you don’t get any of the snootiness you get from other French restaurants.  The price was just right.  It was magical.  I can go on and on about why Mon Ami Gabi in Paris is the best place to eat in Las Vegas.  Breakfast on the other hand, it was not the same.  There was no magic.

My first experience here was dinner, so I thought I would give breakfast a try.  We shared the bagel and lox plate.  Bagels and lox is one of my favorite breakfasts. Raw fish and cream cheese?  Count me in.  Though theirs wasn’t the best, it was still tasty.  The lox were nice and salty and had a good flavor.  I wasn’t too pleased with the bagel they gave us.  The

We shared a breakfast crepe that had bacon, egg, and cheese.  I am not a fan of savory crepes, but this one was nice and tasty.  The flavor was mild and creamy.  The cream sauce they put over it was flavorful. I wish it was filled more inside — not like a burrito, but maybe like a quesadilla.  Well, that wouldn’t be sensible now would it. (Random though: Breakfast quesadilla a good idea?  I think so!)  Being a sweet crepe person, this dish gave light to other savory crepes out there.

This time around, my Mon Ami Gabi experience was not the same.  The magic was indeed gone.  No sunset, no table by the fountain, no steak.  People say the first impression is always the most important, and I will always hang on to that first memory. The breakfast was good, but the first experience was such a pleasant one, nothing could top it.  Mon Ami Gabi will still be one of my favorite places to dine in Las Vegas.  Next up will have to be lunch.  Until then, Mon Ami Gabi will always be my friend.
