Uber-food writer, and recent double James Beard Award winner Alan Richman, came to Vegas a few years ago, and wasn’t all that keen on his meal at miX. Yours truly considers Uncle Alan a friend, a mentor (we’ve been corresponding about food and Las Vegas since 1992), and a total mensch. (Despite his cranky reputation, he’s one of the sweetest guys on the planet — but don’t tell him ELV said so.)
