John Curtas is …

Book Launch Party!

If someone had dropped a bomb on Restaurant Guy Savoy last night between the hours of 6-8 pm, it would’ve set Las Vegas’ culinary destiny back twenty years. Such was the assemblage of top toques from across the valley (and from beyond the pond as well), who came to kibbitz and consume incomparable comestibles (jamon iberico de bellotta de pata negra, pumpkin soup with white truffles, oysters en gelée, Paris-Brest pastries, and two croquembouche towers of nonpareil profiteroles) and champagne in the consummate style the French do better than anyone.

Über-French-chef Guy Savoy hosted this  gathering of eagles — the folks who make our restaurant scene soar above almost all others in the world — and provided the food and wine to kick off our book launch with ultimate in good taste.

Congrats to all the restaurants that made the book (despite the title, over a hundred a fifty eateries get mentioned in the various chapters — Cheap Eats, Steakhouses, Old Vegas, et al) and a big merci beaucoup to Celena Hass, Anthony Curtis, Robin Leach, and especially Guy Savoy and Caesars Palace for putting on such a food and wine display the likes of which no cocktail party in this town has ever seen.

  • Congrats on the book, guys. I’m proud that my agency has the pleasure of representing five of your top 50 (shameless plug for Border Grill, Marche Bacchus, Rao’s, Rick Moonen’s rm seafood and Valentino).

    JC – if you’d like to send me my signed copy you know where to find me. @SteveDolinsky and I can share one over lunch!

  • Congrats! Can’t wait to read the book!

  • What an amazing night!!! Congrats, Mr. Curtas to you, Mr. J, and Al.

  • Eater had their annual awards dinner in NYC the same night as your launch party. Your event seemed much more interesting than that other event. :-)

  • It was an absolute pleasure to host the Eating Las Vegas Book party – major kudos to the Restaurant Guy Savoy team as they delivered an amazing evening and hosted by none other the world famous Guy Savoy. What a night!

  • A last hurrah for Guy Savoy perhaps? Word is that the place is closing soon (which is a damn shame).

  • ELV responds: We love @KevinEats and his website (www.kevineats.com), but he couldn’t be more wrong.

    We’ve been in Restaurant Guy Savoy several times in the past month and it’s been busier than we’ve ever seen.

  • How many comps do these restaurants have to give to ELV to make the book? And how many for the top ten?
