Mandalay Bay will soon be home to Bacon Bitch, the first Las Vegas outpost of a growing brunch franchise born in Miami Beach, FL. Paperwork recently filed with Clark County gives an estimated construction budget of $850,000 for the buildout at the hotel.
To look at the Bacon Bitch menu is to be astonished not only by the expansiveness of its selection of boozy brunch offerings, but also by its commitment to proving the elasticity of the grownup word in its name.
In the case of “Main B*tches,” the word refers to a croissant sandwich, like the Juicy (Grilled Marinated Flank Steak, Fried Egg, Swiss Cheese, Caramelized Onions, Roasted Peppers, Chimichurri Aioli) or the Boujee, with Applewood Smoked Bacon, Fried Egg, Smashed Avocado, Sliced Tomato, and (naturally) B*tch Sauce.
In the case of “Naked B*tches,” it might refer to an egg white omelet stuffed with tomato, spinach, grilled pepper, and onions (the Fit), or it might refer to chicken and waffles or steak and eggs.
The restaurant also offers champagne bottles and a wide range of cocktails, with several varieties apiece of mojitos, margaritas, and daiquiris called “Frozens.” The “Cafe B*tch” menu includes a variety of coffee beverages like americano and cortado. Signature cocktails include the Hangover B*tch, a bloody mary assembled with house-made—yes—Bloody B*tch Mix, and the Drunk B*tch (“A Little Bit Of Everything, Deﬁnitely Order That Uber”). Amidst all these colorful names, one is almost relieved to find that a mimosa is just a Mimosa.
