We've enlisted comedians, some based here and others who spend their time on the road and come through Vegas, to share their recommendations on great places to dine in Sin City for a feature dubbed Comedian Confidential.

Cynical comedian Robert Duchaine's sarcastic social commentary pokes fun at myriad topics including race, religion and relationships. He performs at the Improv at Harrah’s through Saturday night. Here he talks about what he remembers about his first trip to Las Vegas and why his favorite place to dine in Las Vegas isn't a restaurant you can get into.

How often do you get to Las Vegas?
I work Vegas three to four times a year. I can’t really afford to work here more than that.

Do you remember your first trip to Vegas?
Does anyone?

Do you have any favorite restaurants you like to visit here?
The employee cafeteria at Harrahs is pretty great.

Do people approach you while you're dining out?
Yes, they usually ask, “What the hell are you doing in the employee cafeteria?”

What about nightlife? Do you ever go out after a show to unwind?
No, I do my shows to unwind from Vegas.

What was the first thing that shocked you in Las Vegas?
That nobody said, “You’ve had enough, go home.”

What can we expect at your show?
Five minutes of jokes followed by a 30-minute sales pitch to buy my CD. I learned that from the timeshare guys.
