Remember this book?
And the ones that came before and after it?
Of course you do.
Because, if we do say so ourselves, (SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT) it was the most interesting distillation of the Las Vegas restaurant scene ever to hit the shelves.
Well, it’s comin’ back food fans.
With a 2016 Edition.
With more content, information, opinions and categories than ever.
Expect less dueling critics and more coverage — with some major surprises in store — containing serious shout-outs to everything from old warhorses that still shine to the young guns who are re-defining our restaurant/food culture.
The new authors — besides yours truly — will be Greg Thilmont, Michael Uzmann and Mitchell Wilburn — fellows who make up for in youthful enthusiasm what they lack in Max Jacobson’s gravitas, or Al Mancini’s everyman appeal. (Truth be told, the newbies also cover much more middle-brow dining options than I do, so expect expanded coverage of everything from brewpubs to bakeries, breakfasts to buffets. FYI: Chinatown and steakhouses, as well as the Top 10, shall remain primarily my beat.)
The work has already begun, with a projected publication date in early 2016.
Bon appétit to all, and here’s hoping you’re in the book!
