Yup! They’re every bit as good as they look. And everything is priced between $8-$17.
So good is Chef Nico Chessa’s one night only Ides Of March Dinner this Sunday at Giorgio Ristorante in the Mandalay Bay, that ELV — besides telling you about it in the basso profundo baritone* for which he is known — decided to post a few tasty snaps of it in advance!
FYI: The total cost is $49/person, which includes three big pours of three excellent, Italian wines, each well-matched to the food.

The Star Chefs Revue was extremely well attended last night — at least a couple hundred foodies by our count. In keeping with the lack of attention span for which he is known, ELV ate and ran before the awards were handed out. But based upon these furtive tastings, the following were our favorites (actually, all the chefs put out extraordinary vittles, these are just the ones Eating Las Vegas loved best):
> Adam Sobel’s Wisconsin cheese-stuffed potato dumpling soup;
> Joe Isidori’s Chinese spiced short ribs;
> Anthony Amoroso’s pancetta-wrapped quail with almond foam;
> Amanda Gager’s cocktails (that were not for the feeble!)
