The Bellagio unveiled a new poolside restaurant on Friday, just in time for pool season. Como Poolside Café & Bar at the Bellagio’s newly renovated pool features a Mediterranean menu and breezy casual walk-up bar.

Como serves breakfast and lunch, with morning offerings like lemon blueberry pancakes, avocado bruschetta, French toast, and breakfast sandwiches. In the afternoons, there’s a variety of salads, appetizers of hummus and vegetables or shrimp cocktail, a handful of sushi rolls, and heavier dishes like those of chicken tenders and salmon piccata. The cocktails skew bright, fruity, and spritzy.

The surrounding pool complex has five pools and four whirlpools, including an adults-only pool. Como is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
