If you were a high roller in Las Vegas you would have a personal concierge walking you into all of the best restaurants and making sure you never had to wait for a table. Well, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours has changed that by taking you around the Las Vegas strip for tours of some of the best that the Las Vegas culinary scene has to offer.
As Las Vegas evolves so does the Las Vegas experience and these days, visitors are seeking out new experiences to up the ante on their Vegas vacation. Lip Smacking Foodie Tours now offers a culinary tour of Downtown Las Vegas.
When you join the “Downtown Lip Smacking Tour’’ you experience a side of Vegas that keeps it real with distinctive urban character. Their expert guides provide an insider’s view of downtown’s past, present, and future, as you take in significant landmarks, and enjoy signature dishes at the most exhilarating neighborhood restaurants devoted to farm-to-table, artisanal-crafted fare.
Forget standing in line, where nabbing a seat these days is as hard as snagging a royal flush at the poker table. The guides escort you right into nationally acclaimed Carson Kitchen. Founded by the late-great Kerry Simon, who was known as the celebrity “rock ‘n’ roll’’ chef, it sports an open kitchen to catch all the action up close and personal, as you enjoy Americana dishes elevated with whimsy and garden-fresh, seasonal ingredients.
At Therapy, get rejuvenated with contemporary comfort food served in a chic, industrial setting. It’s the perfect backdrop for indulging in chicken and Red Velvet waffle sliders; Devil’s on Horseback reinterpreted with bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with truffled goat cheese; and signature baked ricotta gnudi finished with truffled fig jam and roasted almonds.
At 7th & Carson, Chef Gregg Fortunato takes your palate on a tour de force ride through earth, land, and sea with his menu of clever shareable plates. Fortunato, who previously cooked at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar, and Inyo Asian Fusion, makes use of the wood-fired oven to infuse dishes with delicious smoke and char. With artsy tiled tables, and a brick-lined patio full of greenery, it’s a restaurant made for lingering.
Amble through the unique Container Park, a must-stop, where shipping containers have been converted into swank boutiques, bustling restaurants and a spirited venue for free live music.
In between bites, you’ll quench your thirst at Inspire. Enjoy the best view on Fremont East, three stories above Fremont Street, at the city’s largest climate-controlled rooftop lounge and beer garden.
