Caesars brings something new to the Las Vegas Strip
Las Vegas, especially the Las Vegas Strip, offers almost anything you can imagine pretty much any time of the night. If you want sushi at 2 a.m. or see a famous DJ play by the pool at 2 p.m., you can do it on the famous 4.2-mile stretch of road.
With so many megaresorts owned by Caesars Entertainment (CZR) – Get the report from Caesars Entertainment Inc.MGM Resorts International (MGM) – Get the MGM Resorts International ReportWynn Resorts (WYNN) – Get the report from Wynn Resorts Limited, and other major players, it’s hard to find anything the Strip hasn’t seen before. You can visit a fake beach at MGM’s Mandalay Bay, swim under the Eiffel Tower at Caesars’ Paris Las Vegas, or eat just about any global cuisine you can imagine at the new Resorts World food court.
Las Vegas has everything, usually multiples of everything, but that doesn’t mean nothing new ever happens on the Las Vegas Strip. Even in a city full of excess with bars that serve alcohol-infused gummy bears, and others that offer whatever you want turned into a slushie, there are still new ways Las Vegas can surprise you – and Caesars did it by bringing a different kind of celebrity chef to Caesars Palace.
The Cronut lands on the Las Vegas Strip
Very few pastries have become viral sensations. In fact, the list might just consist of the Cronut, a combination between a croissant and a donut created by award-winning pastry chef James Beard Dominique Ansel.
It seems like such a simple idea, but the baked treat had people queuing for hours when it was first introduced at his namesake bakery in 2013.
Mic.com shared this report on pastry when it was introduced.
“In New York, a Cronut might be worth more than gold. And skyrocketing demand has allowed Ansel to impose strict restrictions on the sale of its coveted treat. Lines are forming outside the bakery at 189 Spring St as early as 2 hours before opening (8 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday.) Additionally, to ensure early customers don’t buy all the Cronuts, Ansel has set a limit of two Cronuts per person. The treats sell for a pretty penny — $5 apiece. Still, they’re selling like wildfire,” the website shared.

Eventually, the feverish craze slowed, but Ansel’s reputation only grew. And now he’s bringing his eponymous bakery to Caesars Palace.
Opening of a famous bakery at Caesars Palace
When the deal was first signed last year, Ansel made it clear he was very picky about where he made his mark.
“We’re pretty conservative about where we choose to grow and open our stores, and ultimately it’s all about the team you build. There’s so much talent in Las Vegas and we’re delighted to be among some of them. the best, he said,
And, while the new bakery will feature Cronuts, it will also offer new creations.
“As with all of our boutiques, we will be developing new items inspired by our new home and limited-edition exclusives just for Las Vegas, so expect some delicious surprises,” he said.
The famous baker shared part of the menu for the restaurant, which is set to open later this summer inside Caesars Palace.
- Cronut: “Not to be confused with a plain croissant that has been fried, it is made from a puff pastry that has been likened to a croissant (but uses a proprietary recipe) and is first risen, then fried in grapeseed oil at a specific temperature Once baked, each Cronut® pastry is flavored in three ways: 1) rolled in sugar, 2) filled with cream, and 3) topped with glaze.
- DKA (Kouign Amann from Dominica): Similar to a caramelized croissant, the DKA features tender, flaky layers on the inside and a crisp caramelized crust on the outside.
- cookie shot: a warm chocolate chip cookie in the shape of a shot glass, topped with our homemade cold-infused Madagascar vanilla milk.
- Frozen s’mores: with a center of Madagascan vanilla bean ice cream covered in a crispy chocolate feuilletine, the Frozen S’mores are then wrapped in honey marshmallow and flambéed to order, served on a branch of smoked willow wood to that authentic campfire flavor.
These items are all favorites at other Ansel stores. It intends to offer treats only in Las Vegas when it opens.
