Restaurants like Honey Salt, and meals like this, are the reason I started Avec Mallory. From the rustic atmosphere to the incredible menu, this local gem has become one of my favorite places since moving to Las Vegas last fall. Here’s a look at a recent visit for Sunday Brunch, some menu highlights, and a sneak peek behind the scenes!

Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have really struck gold with Honey Salt. From the farm fresh fare to the location and staff, I can’t wait to see how this restaurant grows and evolves over time!

Surprising Dishes – Crab Cake Benedict. I’m from New England and I’m a huge crab and lobster critic, but I was licking my fork by the time I finished with this dish. Butterscotch Pudding. My mom is the biggest butterscotch fan I know and I can’t wait to bring her here to try this incredible dessert out. It was light, flavorful and such a nice way to wrap up a meal; even if it is brunch!
Must Haves – XL Monkey Bread. There is no way to describe how amazing this dish is. I don’t care what your breakfast brunch preferences are, start out with this dish and you will definitely thank me. Biloxi Buttermilk Fried Chicken. This little sandwich is the reason I found out about Honey Salt. Right after moving here last fall I was lucky enough to catch the inaugural Life is Beautiful Festival and just so happen to stop by the Honey Salt booth for lunch! It was fate because the restaurant ended up being right across the street from my house.
This brunch was hands down one of the best meals I’ve had in Las Vegas so far. When you visit Honey Salt, they treat you like family. They dress casual, everybody is smiling, and you even feel like you’re in a massive living room amongst dozens of friends. Even the pottery dishes they serve on remind me of my house in Vermont. The restaurant is located out in Summerlin, not far from Red Rock Canyon; which has become my favorite thing to do after a massive Honey Salt brunch on Sundays. It’s a great excuse to get away from the strip if you are on vacation, as well as the perfect neighborhood spot if you live on the westside of Vegas. Whatever direction you’re coming from, I would absolutely recommend trying it out! Thanks to Chef Joe for walking us though this amazing menu and to Joe C. for being such a great host!! We can’t wait to visit again.
P.S. Did I mention they have a $20 Bottomless Mimosa special on Sundays? It’s your choice between regular or Blood Orange and it’s just one more reason to make your way out there asap!
