We had just gotten into town after a long drive from LA. After we checked into our hotel and freshened up, we wandered over to Paris. Win some, lose some, and then, around 4am, the hunger struck. We asked one of the friendly drink girls where we could find steak and eggs. She hailed over this important-looking man in a suit (probably a floor man or pit boss) and announced “Please escort these lovely ladies to the steak and eggs!”
We wove through the casino floor to the entrance of Sugar Factory American Brasserie, the restaurant side of the colorful candy shop. Tucked away in a secluded corner, we never would have known that it was open at that hour, let alone that it would be serving one of my favorite comfort foods 24 hours a day.
After we were seated, we were greeted by the ever-friendly Skip. We browsed through the extensive menu over ginger ale. The late-night (12am-6am) menu features selections from the breakfast dishes, pizzas, appetizers, and pages of fascinatingly colorful goblets of cocktails.
Of course, I had to get the Sugar Factory’s Steak and Eggs — grilled rib-eye steak accompanied by two eggs and a bearnaise sauce. Sunny side up eggs, tender and juicy rare steak… I was in heaven! All of the dishes in the Eggs & Omelets section are served with home fries and your choice of toast. White, wheat, or cranberry challah. Wait, what? Cranberry challah?!
That’s right – cranberry challah. The delicious, Jewish egg bread was dressed up with dried cranberries, although it tasted suspiciously buttery like a brioche. Maybe it was slathered with butter before it was toasted. It was through a conversation over the word ‘challah’ that we found out Skip had lived and worked in LA for a while, at the infamous Canter’s Deli. What a small world!
N has a soft spot for mac and cheese, so she went for the Oven Baked – macaroni, cheddar cheese sauce, buttered breadcrumbs. She looked so happy digging into the piping hot gratin dish full of rich, creamy, and decadent goodness. Skip brought out some hot sauce and she was all set!
Sure, the food was a bit pricey ($18 steak and eggs, $17 mac & cheese), but they really hit the spot and were conveniently available 24 hours a day. We were also pleasantly surprised by Skip’s amicable service; I’m sure it takes a certain personality to be able to serve obnoxious late-night drunk people with smiles. Next time you’re in Vegas and the munchies hit, be sure to swing by Sugar Factory!
