Celebrity Chefs reach new heights in Las Vegas

Celebrity Chefs take Dining to New Heights in Las Vegas as they are raised 180 feet above the Las Vegas Strip.

We have said for years that Las Vegas has taken its place as one of the worlds top Food and
Wine destinations and the recent Michelin awards barred that out.

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman and Bon Appetit Executive Chef Cat Cora along with some of
the biggest culinary stars in the world celebrated Las Vegas's accomplishment with a Champagne toast 180 feet above the Las Vegas Strip seated at a "table in the sky"

The day was cold by Las Vegas standards but that did not deter big name award winning Chefs like Kerry Simon, Francios Payard, Hubert Keller, Alex Stratta, Michael Mina, Rick Moonen and many others as they sipped Champagne and toasted what Las Vegas has become.

Scott from The Cuisineist spoke with Chef Michael Mina , Chef Kerry Simon, Chef Francois Payard, Chef Rick Moonen, Chef Mike Minor and Chef Theo Schoenegger of the new Sinatra at the Encore and Chef Marc Poidevin of Switch also at the Encore. They all spoke about what Las Vegas has become and where it is going in the culinary world as well as their own restaurants.


If this meeting of the Chefs is any indication, this years Bon Appetit's Vegas Uncorked will surpass last years event which was an incredible experience. Where else in the world can you sample the artistry and meet the worlds best except right here in Las Vegas. For more information about Vegas Uncorked please go to
