I just got back from a weekend in Las Vegas. The culinary highlight of the trip was, without doubt, the two trips I took to Jean Philippe Maury patisserie at the ultra-posh Bellagio Hotel
. The first trip was on friday morning. We shared the Intense, the Rose Macaroon, an assortment package of macaroons, and a cinnamon roll. I didn't get good photos of most of this stuff, but the Intense and the Rose Macaroon are on the right in the picture below. Suffice it to say that these were probably the best pastries I've ever eaten.
Late saturday afternoon, I decided to go back for more. So, I walked there from our hotel room at Treasure Island, which is about a mile away. The temperature was about 110F at this point, and by the time I got to JPM's, I was in the mood for something refreshing. So, I got the Exotic.
