Las Vegas Taste of the Best with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours

Imagine entering one of Las Vegas "hottest restaurants without a reservation as you glide by the host stand and settle into a seat at the best table and have a cocktail. The chef comes to your table for a full explanation of the food's origin and preparation as you savor your meal. Depart leaving other diners awed. Repeat, repeat!

That's the culinary experience offered by Lip Smacking Foodies Tours. You have a choice of tours, each guided by a local expert over two and a half hours to sample plates from several (usually four) restaurants.

After enjoying the best of one, the group (usually no more than 10) walks to the next, learning tips and trivia from the guide. A surprise stop for a great view, a look at an interesting piece of artwork or an anecdote about a local history makes each tour unique.

A new addition is the vibrant Arts District. There you discover eclectic clothing boutiques, antique shops, theaters and art galleries between stops at the dining tables.

The itinerary includes Ester's Kitchen, featuring seasonal Italian cuisine from James Trees, a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef who has worked for Gordan Ramsey, Eric Ripert, Ray Garcia and Michael Mina, Jammyland, where former New Yorkers Danielle Crouch and Allen Katz serve up modern Caribbean fare in a converted garage with a patio and murals; and Cornish Pasty Co., where Englishman Dean Thomas serves pies from recipes that originated in the 1200's and other classic British desserts.

The new Arts District tour is $125 per person and you can add a beverage packas ($50) for a preselected signature cocktail at each stop.
