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.
Executive chef Joe Zanelli of Clique Hospitality’s Greene St. Kitchen says he’s mainly been cooking at home, but has two spots he’s turned to for takeout or delivery during the coronavirus pandemic. At Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, he orders the Margherita with roasted peppers and ricotta. At Cafe Breizh he turns to croissants, apple turnovers, sugar brioche, ham and cheese croissants, and assorted cookies.
Jeremy Jordan, the chef and partner at Cut & Taste Catering, orders from Sushi Bomb. His go-to orders? The coconut lover roll and Sushi Bomb roll.
Chef Dan Coughlin, who has two locations of Le Thai and plans to open 8 East at Circa in December, orders delivery from Chinatown’s Chengdu Taste. “It’s probably for me the most flavorful and spicy Chinese food in Vegas. I like it so much that when we went to China a year ago we actually visited Chengdu, China.” Some of his favorite dishes include mung bean noodle with spicy sauce, spicy wontons, toothpick lamb, chicken with red and green pepper, beef with golden sauce, Chengdu fried rice, beef with crispy rice, boiled fish with red and green pepper, stir fried green beans, and fried chicken with red pepper. “Anyone of these dishes is a guarantee for me,” he says.
