NYC's Harbour's Chef Anthony Fusco Joins The RM Seafood Crew

As Steve Perry has so astutely sang with Journey, “The Wheel In The Sky keeps on turning,” and a new era of RM Seafood has been born.  In a triumphant return to Las Vegas, Chef Anthony Fusco has joined the RM Seafood crew.  Anthony first came to town from New York’s Gramercy Tavern when he [...]

Monday Mise en Place: Five French Culinary Masters To Cook For James Beard

Me and J-Ro

It’s another day and another fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation.  This one isn’t even in Las Vegas, but it involves five guys with joints here in town, so I thought I’d give it a mention.  You may have heard of them; Alain Ducasse, Francois Payard, Joël Robuchon, Guy Savoy and Jean-Georges [...]

Behind The Scenes: How My 2010 7 & 7 Restaurant Picks Were Picked

I don’t know about you, but when I see Top (insert number here [that's what she said]) Lists, my blood usually starts boiling.  I often find myself thinking, “Are these people fucking stupid, corrupt, or a little bit of both?”  Whether it’s a Top 5 Greek Restaurants in Vegas list that doesn’t have The Fat [...]

What the Hell is THAT?!? - Foie Gras

Foie gras (pronounced: fwah grah) is one of the more controversial items on the menu.  Along side caviar and truffles as a symbol of gastronomic decadence, foie gras is as adored by many as it is chastised by many.  Foie gras is also one of those items on the menu that make many people just [...]

A Brief Response to Two Idiots in New York

Looks like I’m already late to the party to fire back at David Landsel and Andy Wang’s seemingly unresearched display of Manhattanite Superiority Complex Idiocy they wrote for their 3rd Rate Rag (a.k.a. – The New York Post), as Eating Las Vegas’ John Curtas has already brilliantly responded in his blog.  However, with the magnitude [...]
