Two longtime local food writers recommend Sadelle’s for bagels, including Al Mancini (who lived for ten years in New York City). So does Mina Group corporate executive chef and partner Adam Sobel, whose company’s international flagship restaurant is located directly next door. So yes, the bagels here (baked fresh on the premises, all day long) are legit. That’s not surprising, since the original Sadelle’s in New York’s SoHo was created to highlight the baking of Melissa Weller, the former head baker for Thomas Keller’s Per Se and Bouchon Bakery. The bagel toppings, including house-smoked fish and spreads, are also pretty amazing. But that’s just the start of it.
Sadelle’s is a massive, beautiful restaurant located on a prime piece of real estate adjacent to the Bellagio Conservatory, overlooking the resort’s lush pool decks. Open for breakfast and lunch on weekdays and dinner on weekends, it offers a range of both sweet and savory options that range from tuna tartare to an impressive spaghetti Bologenese. Yet the New York deli classics, which also include matzo ball soup and a classic egg sandwich, are its heart and soul.
