Boasting world-class hotels and spas, championship golf, and spectacular residential communities, Lake Las Vegas guests and residents alike have an unmatched experience centered around a beautiful lake. At Lake Las Vegas you can find Bernard's Bistro , a quaint restaurant with some great dishes created by owner and Executive Chef E. Bernard.
The Cuisineist stopped by to sample some great food and soak up the atmosphere as Chef E. Bernard payed tribute to Frank Sinatra with a themed evening of elegance celebrating “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” As we watched classic Sinatra favorites the guests enjoyed a special five-course meal of signature items that the legend himself enjoyed.

Espresso Crème BrouleeWe started our Frank Sinatra inspired dinner with an appetizer petite brioche of foie gras. Although the foie gras was overwhelmed by the tartlet, the flavors came through, as we waited for our next course. For the following course we selected the sauteed mushrooms. The cheese
fondue had a hint of red pepper which brought a nice touch of heat to the earthiness of the mushrooms and the asparagus. For the main entree, the Chilean sea bass was a large, perfectly cooked portion that melted in our mouth. The wonderful creme broulee was a most delightful ending to a lovely dinner in tribute to "Ol' Blue Eyes."
Bernards Bistro has not been open very long but with dishes created by Chef E Bernard in a bistro overlooking the beautiful Lake Las Vegas we have a feeling this is just the beginning of a long running great place to dine.
