Where to find a Beignets?

Leaving tomorrow for 3 nights woohoo!

First time we won't have a car but for my birthday (which is tomorrow or today for some of ya, the 11th) my BF wants to take me to get some beignets. Never had em (despite my dad being from Louisiana) but wanna try!

Anyone ever had them and if so, where?

Google is just showing me bouchon.. Thanks!

I think the Google search found Bouchon's bakery, not the restaurant. We had breakfast there in July and I don't recall seeing them on the menu. And my wife likes them, so we would have looked.

Tableau used to serve them but took them off the menu, so ignore it shows up on your search.

I've seen a couple of restaurants that serve beignets as dessert with dipping sauces, but don't recall which ones off-hand.

Try Emeril's at MGM for a good meal and beignets for dessert:

The one time I ordered Beignets, it was at the Grand Lux Cafe (Palazzo location, I believe). At one time, the menu listed for the Venetian and the menu listed for the Palazzo were different, but now they are the same, so I don't know if they just went and stopped making the Beignets.

For what it's worth, I was disappointed with them anyway. I expected them to be something special, and they were just boring and greasy - not even the dipping sauces they came with saved them. So if they did discontinue making them, it's no big loss.

I hope you find them somewhere else, though.

Don't wear black, and don't inhale.

I just checked a couple of the other Emeril's restaurants in LV (Delmonico, Table 10) and was surprised to see they did NOT have them.

For some reason they ring a bell with reviews I've read of Fix at Mirage?

Ohhhh not to change the subject since I am sure if Emeril's at MGM offers them that they are tasty, BUT you've never had the real thing until you sit at Cafe du Monde looking at Jackson Square and just taking in the sights around the flea market area...oh and blowing powdered sugar at others sitting at the table with you! LOL
