LAS VEGAS — Chefs such as Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken chime in on how they would change the world through food. Shirley Chung, the former Top Chef contestant who is opening Twenty Eight Modern Chinese next month in Orange County, says "I would teach kids that our food is not from the supermarket, we grow it."

THE STRIP — Wahlburgers, the burger restaurant from celebrity brothers Mark, Donnie and Eric Wahlberg, now says three of their Boston-based franchises are heading to Vegas. While reticent to say exactly where, the three are in Vegas this weekend to film an episode of their A&E show Wahlburgers while "looking" for a space.
