Kerry Simon Talks About Prime Serving High Rollers

Kerry Simon's Fight MSA event on Thursday and his battle against the disease he's afflicted with have been getting tons of press lately, and now add Esquire to the mix. Here he talks about what he's learned in his lifetime.

Cooking in Vegas is its own experience. I got there in 1997 and helped open Prime at Bellagio. My first night at Prime, there was a guy who lost $18,000 in one hand, and he wanted a steak brought up to his room. They asked me if I would cook one to go. I said, "Sure. You lose $18,000, you get the rib eye." A guy drops that kind of money in less than a minute, you do everything you can to lift his spirits.
