VIDEO: Fresh Hawaiian Fish Menu at Wynn Las Vegas’ Lakeside Grill

I’ve always loved the freshness and variety of Hawaiian fish–but it’s hard to find either on the mainland. So my ears were definitely pricked by the announcement that Wynn Las Vegas’ Lakeside Grill would be offering a rotating selection of fresh Hawaiian fish flown in daily. This month, Chef David Walzog and Chef Rene Lenger [...]

A Tasty Tease: Las Vegas Epicurean Affair 2013

Local Las Vegas food crits seem to love poking fingers at Bon Appetit’s Vegas Uncork’d, the biggest annual culinary event on the Vegas Strip.
