Do you have to be a high roller to eat well in Las Vegas? San Diego Union-Tribune staff writer Peter Rowe just returned from cruising celebrity chef dining rooms on the Strip--everyone from Charlie Trotter's Restaurant Charlie to Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's Carnevino. He'll be in studio with us on The Gourmet Club to give us an idea of how much of your winnings you need to fork over for a "name" dinner.
Also joining us this week is food writer Maureen Clancy to chat about asparagus, everyone's favorite spring veggie.
And, we'll chat about Bravo's Top Chef with Brian Malarkey. Who bit the culinary dust this week? Well, let's just say our first Top Chef couple is now reunited. Brian, who is executive chef at Oceanaire, will give us his take on what happened, which you can also find on his Bravo blog. And, Mike Mitchell, Oceanaire's general manager, will be on to talk about new restaurants with us.
Join The Gourmet Club online on Friday from 1 to 2 p.m. Pacific on signonradio.com. Or podcast the show and listen at your convenience.
NOTE: AS OF NEXT WEEK, THE GOURMET CLUB MOVES TO WEDNESDAY MORNING AT 11 A.M.
