It’s amazing what can roll around Vegas. At any given time, there are bowling balls rolling down your private in-suite bowling alley at the Palms. There are Rolls Royce Phantoms rolling through the Bellagio valet. There are Bloody Mary’s rolling by you table at Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro. . .

About that last part. That is, indeed, a bundle of celery, a container of cocktail onions and fresh shaved horseradish going 5 mph past your table. You can order a customized Bloody Mary from the cart during weekend brunch, which is especially nice on Morels’ patio.

Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro is located in the Palazzo Las Vegas.

Mon Ami Gabi in Paris Las Vegas has a similar cart that rolls to your table, only this one houses wine. The cart features wine chillers to ensure your vino as at optimal temperature.

If you find bloody’s boring and wine a waste of your time, head to Shibuya in MGM Grand. At the modern Asian restaurant, it isn’t a bottle of Merlot or a bottle of Tabasco that gets wheeled by, it’s sake. Whatever your taste in sake, the cart has it. If it doesn’t, let the on-site sake sommelier help guide your choice. Hey, I’m sure he’ll put your selection on the cart and roll it over to you if you ask him nicely.

The "Sweet Cart Named Desire" at Lakeside in Wynn Las Vegas.

The “Sweet Cart Named Desire” at Lakeside in Wynn Las Vegas is a custom-designed cart full of one and two-bite desserts. The cart rolls by tables nightly and is the perfect complement to Chef David Walzog’s savory modern American cuisine.

If you’re looking for a dressier cart, try restaurants like Joël Robuchon in MGM Grand or Guy Savoy in Caesars Palace. these French restaurants offer a bread cart, a cheese cart and even a dessert or mignardises trolleys. At Robuchon, they even have a tea trolley with fresh potted plants like peppermint to enhance your tea.

As if having a view of the Fountains at Bellagio isn’t grand enough, you can also savor fresh-carved Peking duck in warm bao buns without missing a single drop of water. The Peking duck cart at The Fountains Brunch in Jasmine is one of the tastiest options at the otherwise boutique buffet-style brunch.

For a flashy indulgence, head to Sage in Aria Las Vegas for a glass of absinthe. The entire presentation includes choosing your absinthe from the cart and a spectacular fire element. Let’s hope this cart is fireproof.
