Chef David Walzog with Sophie Gayot at Lakeside restaurant

 
Oysters in Vegas? Why don’t you eat them at chef David Walzog’s restaurant Lakeside at the Wynn Las Vegas, like I did last week while in Sin City. It is also a great way to see the show on the Lake of Dreams.
 
 
Walzog’s cuisine put the restaurant on GAYOT.com Top 10 seafood restaurant in Las Vegas.

Sophie Gayot at Central Michel Richard Las Vegas

 
 

In one of the two wine towers at Michel Richard’s Central restaurant located the lobby of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
 
 

The restaurant, which opened last September, rapidly made GAYOT.com’s Top 10 Las Vegas 24-Hour Restaurants. (Any hotel, in Nevada, with a casino is required by the Nevada Gaming Commission and State Gaming Control Board to have a restaurant opened 24 hours.)

Here is how I ALWAYS open a bottle of Champagne. BUT please, do not try to sabrage a bottle of Champagne if you don’t know and have not been shown how to do it.

Looking for Champagne? Go to GAYOT.com Wine section dedicated to sparkling wines.

Actress Charlotte Ross with Sophie Gayot

 

 

This week, I had the pleasure of meeting actress Charlotte Ross at The Butterfly Gala – An Enchanted Evening, held at SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills — get a photo tour of the hotel at GAYOT.com’s blog.

 

The GLEE star was the host of the soirée benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, attended by over 300 guests.

 

Charlotte is as charming and courteous as she looks good, so it made my evening even better!

Joshua Whigham with Sophie Gayot

 
Last night, after an event in the ballroom of SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, I dropped by The Bazaar by José Andrés. I found executive chef Joshua Whigham eating at the bar counter at the Rioja side.

He wanted to try his food while sitting at the restaurant and not standing in the kitchen. My timing was perfect as I got to try dishes with him! Chef can be reassured I’ll be back.

The Bazaar by José Andrés was one of GAYOT.com 2011 Top 10 Insider Pick in the US.
