A few final notes about Anthony Bourdain's whirlwind tour of Las Vegas over the last week. The host of CNN's Parts Unknown was in town to film for the third season of the show.
Bourdain wrote a farewell to Vegas via Twitter, mentioning many of the places he visited, including Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace, apparently a final stop on his trip. Savoy, for his part, is in town this week and in the restaurant.
Also of note, Bourdain talked to the Las Vegas Sun about the food scene in the city. "Look, you've always had great high-end outposts of great chefs here. Meaning, Joel Robuchon, Guy Savoy, Tom Colicchio, Thomas Keller — they are all here, even if they are not physically here, they are all running very, very high-quality restaurants," Bourdain says. "You've always had that. But, you know, I think that when you get a restaurant like Raku getting the kind of attention and business that it is getting, that's a tipping point. That's where it matters. Those are the places that will put you on the map as a serious dining destination."
