Here's the Entire Menu for the Max Jacobson Benefit

Here's a look at the entire menu for Chefs to the Max, the benefit dinner for Vegas Seven food critic Max Jacobson, who was hospitalized Dec. 23 after he was hit by an SUV in Henderson. Jacobson has since been moved to Kindred Hospital ICU, where he remains in critical condition although breathing on his own for longer periods of time and occasionally opening his eyes.

The dinner on Sunday at Rx Boiler Room at Mandalay Place features chefs such as Shirley Chung from Top Chef, Bobby Flay and Lotus of Siam's Saipin Chutima, who all signed on recently.

Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by a seven-course dinner from 7 to 10 p.m.
