The new row of restaurants (and soon stores) along the outside of the Monte Carlo is breathing life back into a casino forgotten by many. The BLVD Creamery is one of those new eateries that shouldn’t be missed. With an impressive selection of sweets, you’re bound to spend a pretty penny satisfying your sweet tooth.
Ice creams and sorbets are made locally (from what I hear they’re from the popular downtown spot Art of Flavors) and offer a mix of traditional flavors and those that are more adventurous. For those over 21, you can try the suds sorbet. The hoppyness and bitterness for the Shock Top beer is evident and while it may not be to everyone’s liking, it’s a unique and refreshing treat. The choco loco is made from 62% cocoa, providing a balanced amount of bitter and sweet chocolate. Excellent for kids or adults. Aside from the frozen treats, I tried a decent vanilla macaron with subtle sweetness inside a crispy exterior. The chocolate chunk cookie — the size of an adult hand and about half an inch thick — offered so much potential but was unfortunately too dry and hard. I can only imagine how delicious it could be fresh out of the oven.
I’m still not sure what MGM will call this new set of shops — the boulevard, the district, the park??? They seem to change the project name monthly. But whatever they name it, it’s worth the trek to indulge in some sweets.
