Why the Weekly Thinks This Is the Golden Age of Dining

Nobu Matsuhisa may say Vegas is one of the top 10 dining destinations in the world, but the staff at Las Vegas Weekly is calling this the golden age of dining. In 10 slides (and slides within slides), the weekly argues why the Vegas dining scene has hit its finest hour.

Here's a breakdown of the entire cover story so you don't have to figure out how to read all the content online. First up, the fresh ingredients flown in to Milos at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas daily. "Milos brings in upwards of 300 pounds of seafood each day."

Then they all Vegas a melting pot of cuisines. "From Ethiopian platters to Russian dumplings, Vegas' international delicacies are an expedition waiting to be devoured." Yes, there's a slide show within a slide show for that.

Next, they say the world's best chefs cook here. In the words of Wolfgang Puck, who started the chef trend 21 years ago, "You have to ask who's not here."

Then they briefly list out all the big culinary events that come to Vegas, including Vegas Uncork'd, Cochon 555 and more.

Next comes a list of 50 restaurants in Chinatown that should be on your rounds, followed by a look at Kabuto, the Japanese sushi joint in Chinatown.

A look at the pizza scene here, Sheridan Su's $7 bao at Fat Choy and once-in-a-lifetime meals at é Bar by José Andrés, Guy Savoy, Joél Robuchon and Twist by Pierre Gagnaire.

Finally, wrap it up with a look at what's to come that's kind of vague.
