SKYLOFTS at MGM’s ROOM SERVICE MENU, Las Vegas – Must Order: Lobster Benedict

Dining date: November 23, 2012 and June 26, 2013

Dining occasion: Breakfast, $65 USD for “The Skylofts” breakfast and $42 for just the Lobster Benedict

See the Eater’s Highlights: Another favorite (read about my other favorite breakfast here) breakfast of mine in Las Vegas is the Lobster Benedict available only from the Skylofts at MGM Room Service Menu. What better way to start your day with a butler bringing in a full butter-poached lobster on a toasted brioche with lobster hollandaise (if you are not afraid of high cholesterol levels)! It is also surprisingly not ridiculously priced! This is definitely a must order item when staying at Skylofts.

The Details:

I am generally not a big fan of ordering room service because 1) the food is usually overpriced and not amazing 2) I prefer to go out and find some real local delicacies. Since I was offered free dining credit and was scheduled early to drive some super cars at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, I figured why not order room service for breakfast.

Perusing down the menu, I figured “The Skylofts” ($65) was probably their signature breakfast item, which was what I ordered.

Fresh Fruit Display ($55) The Skylofts ($65): butter-poached lobster and two poached eggs served on toasted brioche, lobster hollandaise, crispy breakfast potatoes, fresh joël robuchon pastries freshly pressed juice, hot beverage, and choice of fresh fruits, yogurt or cereal

The Fresh Fruit Display is very overpriced, but it’s Vegas. The Joël Robuchon pastries include some baguette and danishes. All pretty good. The yogurt was smooth and not too sweet.

You get pretty much a whole lobster with two poached eggs and a side brought to your room, not bad for $42. The lobster was cooked well with a nice buttery taste that went well with the toasted brioche. The lobster hollandaise, which has lobster pieces in it, was almost a perfect sauce that I wanted to dip everything into. The poached eggs were cooked to the perfect runny consistency, as shown in the photo above.

I must say this is quite a heavy and filling breakfast, which was why I only ordered the Lobster Benedict and not “The Skylofts” breakfast after the first time. “The Skylofts” breakfast along with other menu items is great for sharing, though. The main difference between “The Skylofts” breakfast and just ordering the Lobster Benedict is that “The Skylofts” breakfast comes with additional pastries from Joël Robuchon, fresh juice, and coffee or tea.
