Top Chef Masters Contestant Art Smith Dishes on Vegas

Top Chef Masters is getting ready to kick off its fourth season tomorrow night with all the filming done at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Art Smith, one of the 12 contestants on the show, owns Southern Art and Bourbon Bar and formerly worked as Oprah’s personal chef. He dished to Eater Atlanta about the his experience living in Las Vegas for two months, the “best-kept secret in Vegas” and more.

On Vegas ?
?“I’m not a Vegas person and we were there for two months ...”

On the food ??
“The best-kept secret in Vegas is the pizza in the Cosmopolitan. There’s a big hallway with no signs and a long line of people around 3 or 4 in the morning. You’d think it was a line for the bathroom, but it’s for delicious New York-style pizza. I tell you, I saw many a Top Chef Master in that line eating pizza.”

On why pizza is the best-kept secret in the city ??
“We’re so used to eating fancy food that it’s nice to eat something not fancy.”
