Bardot Brasserie

BARDOT Brasserie blends the culture of a Parisian café with the focus and detail of a craft kitchen. Chef Michael Mina and Chef Joshua Smith—a Vegas favorite and longtime Mina collaborator—offer a modern interpretation of traditional brasserie fare for dinner and weekend brunch, including French onion soup with Périgord truffle and duck a l’orange wings. BARDOT Brasserie is a taste of Paris in the heart of the Vegas Strip. 

With a subtle nod to Ernest Hemingway’s time in Paris, BARDOT Brasserie’s cocktail program incorporates eclectic French spirits with an emphasis on cognacs and Armagnacs as well as the largest vintage chartreuse list in Las Vegas. Featuring an array of new and old-world wine, BARDOT Brasserie’s wine program focuses on the regions of Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Rhône, Alsace, and the Loire Valley.

About Our Chef: Joshua Smith

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Chef Joshua Smith has returned home to join James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Mina in his newest venture, BARDOT Brasserie at Aria Resort & Casino. As Executive Chef of BARDOT, Smith is at the helm of Mina’s first traditional French brasserie concept on the Las Vegas Strip, collaborating on a creative menu of classic French fare.

With over a decade of experience, Smith has a wealth of knowledge and skill in a variety of roles in restaurants. Most recently, Smith was a Divisional Executive Chef for Lettuce Entertain You, where he worked beside Chef Matthew Kirkley at the 2 Michelin Starred L20. Prior to that, Smith held the role of Executive Chef at various establishments including Anisette Brasserie, Church and State in Los Angeles, and Estiatorio Milos in Las Vegas.


This isn’t Smith’s first time working with The Mina Group. “Returning to Mina Group is like coming home. My first Sous, Executive Sous and even Executive Chef roles were for Michael at SEABLUE,” Smith said. “I’ve continued to be inspired not only by Chef Mina but also the culinary talents of Mina Group as a whole, it’s a diverse and driven team I’m proud to be a part of once again.”

At BARDOT, Smith is responsible for developing the culinary program for the brasserie, including the restaurant’s lively weekend brunch. When he’s not in the kitchen, you can find the self-proclaimed “amateur gear head” tinkering with motorcycles, digging into a meal at Raku, or spending time with his family.
