If at this point, you haven’t heard about Dominique Ansel’s sensational creation, the cronut, then we suggest you make the effort to try one immediately. The croissant donut, dubbed “cronut” for short, catapulted Ansel into fame and brought attention to the many other creative and delicious confections he creates on a daily basis. His New York City bakery frequently has lines out the door.
Now, Ansel will be expanding beyond NYC to Las Vegas, where a new location of the bakery will be located inside of Caesar’s Palace. There you’ll be able to enjoy the classics that made Ansel so well known as well as new treats he has come up with for this new location.
Ansel told Travel + Leisure: “We’re thrilled to open our newest shop at Caesars Palace and be back out West. In addition to bringing some of our signatures from New York, I’m most excited to launch our newest creations for everyone. Like each of our shops around the world, we’ve developed a collection of pastries that will be exclusive to Las Vegas.”
One of these new creations includes the “Lucky Me” pastry that is comprised of an elderflower mascarpone mousse, a cassis jam eclair, and Valrhona Caramelia chocolate.
Of course, there will be the staples of any French bakery as well, like pan au chocolate and croissants. The space will have a cafe with seating as well as a retail space.
The original location of Ansel’s bakery is located in Soho in Manhattan, but he also has a New York City workshop and several Dang Wen Li by Dominique Ansel locations in Hong Kong as well.
The Las Vegas bakery will be open from 7am to 9am Monday through Thursday, and from 7am to 10pm on the weekends. It is located right next to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill.
