If you need some sustenance before making that drive back to L.A., Sunday brunch along the Las Vegas Strip can provide plenty of choices to sustain you.

At the always-packed Sterling Brunch at Bally's Steakhouse, a tuxedo-clad host greets guests for this perennial favorite.

Bally’s may not be known as one of the area's more luxurious resorts, but its Sunday brunch is one of the finest. At $90 a person, it’s also one of the priciest. But the Champagne is free-flowing (don't drive after indulging, of course) and the choices lavish, as diverse as a cognac-and-Boursin omelet and the brunch’s signature lobster and made-to-order desserts.

Reservations are a must for brunch, which begins at 9:30 a.m. The last seating is at 1:30 p.m. Call (877) 346-4642.

Down the Strip at the upscale Mandarin Oriental, new menu items are luring diners to its Jazz Sundays Brunch.

Priced at $58, the Asian-influenced, all-you-can-eat brunch includes entree choices such as a soufflé omelet and Hong Kong-style steamed grouper. There’s also an eye-catching, palate-pleasing seafood station that features crab claws and Kumamoto oysters. Unlimited mimosas are offered for $19 more, and free-flowing Champagne is priced at $35. Specialty cocktails from the Mandarin Bar are also available. (But again, drivers be responsible.)

The hotel’s Mozen Bistro is the venue. Call (702) 590-8882 for reservations.

Two other Las Vegas restaurants whose Sunday brunches consistently make “best of” lists:

Country Club at the Wynn overlooks the resort’s golf course. The a la carte brunch menu includes French toast bread pudding ($18) and shrimp-and-grits ($24). Info: (702) 770-3463

Simon at Palms Place (702) 944-3292). Start off with a fresh-made pastry and a made-to-order smoothie. Prix-fixe at $45 per person.
