Sin City is home to a lot of restaurants and bars, but there are tons of hidden gems that the majority of Las Vegans aren’t unearthing. To help guide readers to these potential discoveries, Eater Vegas enlisted some of the city’s food players to share their recommendations for a feature dubbed Dining Confidential.

Vincent Pellerin is part of the trio that brought the French restaurant Partage to Chinatown and Eatt Gourmet Bistro and its healthy fare to the westside. The executive pastry chef works with general manager Nicolas Kalpokdjian and executive chef Yuri Szarzewski. Here he shares some of his favorite restaurants in Las Vegas.

Do you remember your first trip to Vegas? What happened that was memorable?

My first trip to Vegas was with Yuri five years ago. I was so excited to discover the city, learn about it and then decide if we liked it enough to move here. This was also my first trip to the U.S. During those two weeks, we had the chance to visit some casino kitchens, go see some shows and experience Las Vegas life. After this trip, I knew I wanted to come back here.

What made you decide to move to Las Vegas?

I’ve always had the desire to travel, so I was very excited to visit the U.S. and Las Vegas. The feeling I had at the airport as Yuri and I were about to go back to France is what made me decide to move here. Yuri was just as excited about the city as I was, and I remember him telling me, “We need to do something here!” For me, the answer was a clear, “Yes, for sure!”

Where do you like to eat breakfast in Las Vegas?

I love the Danish at Cafe Breizh. You can really taste how fresh they are. It is my Sunday breakfast routine.

If you’re going out for dinner, which restaurants do you like to frequent? What makes them special? Any dishes you can recommend?

I like to go to Sushi Kame for late-night dining.

Where do you like to dine for a special occasion?

For a special occasion, I like to go to Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar. Chef Fransesco always takes good care of us and you will never be disappointed by his knowledge of true Italian food.

Are there any brunches in town you like to frequent?

The brunch at Echo & Rig is very good. The balcony patio overlooking the fountain always provides a relaxing environment.

Let’s say you want to hang out with your friends after work. Where do you like to go?

We really like going to Herbs & Rye to enjoy some good cocktails.

Any healthy restaurants that you like to dine at in Las Vegas?

I generally go to Meraki Greek Grill for a good salad and a chicken gyro if I’m in the mood for a healthy meal.
