Las Vegas is known for many things but one thing that can be swept under the rug is its delectable cuisine. Located in the Paris Hotel and Casino off of Las Vegas Boulevard is Mon Ami Gabi, a French restaurant known for its unique atmosphere and scrumptious food. While many sit down restaurants in Vegas require a more formal attire, Mon Ami Gabi can be considered more comfy casual.

I went for brunch and had a bloody mary. While the prices are higher in Vegas, for what I paid I got my money’s worth as you can see below.
TIP: If you go to Mon Ami in the future take a look at the menu before you go. I can sometimes be an indecisive eater, but their menu was of no help. I had a very hard time deciding what I wanted because every option was so unique and sounded so good.
True to the French feel, I went with a savory crepe stuffed with chicken, brie and sliced apples. In my mind I felt like this wouldn’t be enough to eat since most crepes I have had are on the smaller side, but boy, was I wrong. Lesson learned!

Mon Ami has many good side options to supplement your meal so I went with a side of brioche toast and jam. In complete honesty I didn’t even touch the toast. When my crepe arrived I realized I had bitten off more than I could chew– literally. The crepe was so filling and perfectly balanced of sweet and savory that the toast was completely unnecessary.
If you are looking to eat at Mon Ami Gabi, make a reservation. It is pivotal that you call ahead to make a reservation because it is very popular spot on the strip.
Another tip: If you have the choice, ask to sit outside. The patio overlooks Las Vegas Boulevard and is perfect for people watching on the strip.
Mon Ami Gabi gets a 10/10
