Has anyone had a chance to visit the newly opened second location of JPM Patisserie in Aria? I am wondering if they offer anything new or different or unique that isn't available at Bellagio.

The pictures of the pastries look absolutely stunning and jewel-like, but to me, the more important question, is how do they taste? Too often, especially for pastries, the pretttier it looks, the duller it tastes.

Are there any can't-miss, must-try items for this shop?

They are really good.

I DID get a chance to visit the new shop at Aria last summer. I can't recall what I had there, but one that I liked from a previous visit to the Bellagio shop was "the intense" if you really like chocolate, you will like that one.

When I was in vegas last and went to the one in the Bellagio I had the Macaron filled with rose pastry cream and raspberries. It was like biting into a summer garden in full bloom. Best thing I ever put in my mouth, before or since...

Everything I tried lived up to it's looks. Can't wait to go back again.

I just took a trip to Vegas and saw both. They have some minor differences

- the one in Aria is right inside the casino so potentially more cigarette smoke.
Though, the aria is the least smokey casino in Vegas IMO.

- the one in aria sells standalone chocolates. I didn't see this in the Bellagio location

- the one in Bellagio has the chocolate fountain

- I did not see the aria location after 11a so didn't see the pastries at aria

- I felt the aria location was a little morecramped in the line. Aria has seating
As part of the shop Bellagio you eat in the lobby of hotel

- both locations don't bring out the pastries until later around 11 or so.
Before this its croissants danishes fried donuts and so on . I can't remember if it was always like this or not.
The pastries are a little different now compared to 3 years ago and will try to post pics later
