The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens recently debuted one of Las Vegas’ most exclusive dining experiences, The Garden Table. For brunch or dinner, The Garden Table offers an epicurean adventure with fixed-prices menus from the teams at MICHAEL MINA Bellagio and Sadelle’s Café.

 

The Garden Table sits in the Conservatory’s Jungle of Dreams summer display, with 28 animal sculptures and nearly 10,000 plants and flowers. Jungle of Dreams is on display through Sept. 10. The Garden Table will remain through all future Bellagio Conservatory displays with seasonally themed menus complementing the design. The experience can host up to six; reservations are limited to two-hour time blocks.
