Las Vegas Eats 2014: Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie

Located at the Bellagio
3600 Las Vegas Boulevard S

Calvin, Danny, Eric, and I were exploring the Bellagio Hotel on the first night of Vegas after our Cirque du Soleil Zarkana show and happened to pass by Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie.  It’s an European-style pastry shop that stands out since there’s a beautiful display of a choo-choo train near the ceiling with these glass-like glaciers coming out of it.  To the right of the shop, there is a world record: the world’s largest chocolate fountain.  It’s made with 500 feet of stainless steel piping connected from the ceiling to the floor.  It was neat to see the smooth, rich, and dark chocolate flowing out and bypassing each level.  From their website, it says it was “a realized dream for award-winning executive pastry chef Jean Philippe Maury”.  

So much liquid chocolate!

Pretty pastry shop :)

We took a look at the beautiful pastries but didn’t think to stop by to actually try any (we were still full from BurGR anyway).

These are all cakes!

On the last day of Vegas, however, Vivian and I were hotel-hopping after a hefty brunch at Hash House A Go Go and we were in the Bellagio Hotel again in front of this large chocolate fountain.  After snapping a few pictures of the amazingly sculpted celebration cakes near the back of the restaurant, we decided to get one of the pastries to try.  Yay!

Lots of exquisite sweets and pastries

Everything looked great and delicate.  Since we’re both chocolate lovers, we selected the one called “Intense”.

Intense

Chocolate macaron, chocolate mousse, chocolate cremeux. $7

It was beautifully crafted with a little ‘stem’ to hold up the pink macaron on top.  It was such fine attention to detail!  The chocolate printed flakes on the side of it were very thin too.

The layer of chocolate on top was smooth and rich, something that satisfied my expectation of what it would taste like.  The inside contained rich ice cream-like texture and there was even a cookie bit in the middle.  It was great!  What a great afternoon it was. :)

Jean-Philippe’s also makes fresh crepes on the spot and serves gelato too!
