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.

For this edition, Eater Vegas reached out to chefs and restaurateurs to find out where they are ordering takeout and delivery during the coronavirus pandemic.

Brandon Konishi, the executive chef at the Sahara, orders a lot from Island Sushi & Grill that offers a lot of variety to feed his whole family from Hawaiian-style plate lunches, sushi, poke, and malasadas. Konishi says the sushi rolls are 50 percent off from Monday through Thursday all day, and Friday and Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. “They also just started another special for Sundays that includes sushi rolls and nigiri sushi for 50 percent all day,” he says. “These specials are for pick up only and you can call ahead for pick up orders.

Javier Chavez, executive chef and owner of Kitchen Table and Kitchen Table Squared, like to order from Big B’s Texas BBQ. “As an El Paso, Texas native, good barbecue is a necessity in my weekly routine,” Chavez says. “My go-to dish at Big B’s are the beef ribs. They are cooked to perfection, fall off the bone, and remind me of home. I also love their brisket. The portions are hearty enough to where you can use the leftovers the next day for a killer sandwich.”

Antonio Nunez, executive chef and part owner at The Stove in Henderson, satisfies his coffee cravings at Mothership Coffee Roasters and Dark Moon Coffee Roasters. “Mothership is still crafting great coffee and pastries and Dark Moon has the best nitro brew on the planet.”

Nunez sticks to local restaurants for pizza and tacos. “For pizza, I am hitting up Sunset Pizzeria, a local pizza joint in Henderson that serves up a damn good pie. The Taco Man is giving me a reason to workout on the daily. Their carne asada, al pastor tacos, and burritos just always seem to always hit the spot; same thing with their churros.”

Shiraz executive chef Jainine Jaffer finds herself ordering suicide fries and veggie pizza from Naked City Pizza as well as Chinese food from Graffiti Bao. “I enjoyed their vegetable bao, burrata scallion pancakes, crispy chili garlic noodles, and Sichuan tofu to complete my quarantine date night with hubby to be.”

Elizabeth Blau and Kim Canteenwalla, the couple behind Honey Salt, rely on to-go orders when they’re not in the restaurant. They turn to Pinkbox for doughnuts, El Dorado Cantina for a fajita salad and burritos, and Rooster Boy Cafe for bagels, matzah ball soup, whitefish salad, and bacon brie quiche.
