Hot off the grill!

After four previous fights, the 2 sommeliers who wind up contending in the finals at Wolfgang Puck’s Bar & & Grill in Downtown Summerlin on June 15 will certainly be Rafael Garcia from L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon and Adem Sash from Del Frisco’s.

They will certainly serve 6 wines over three courses, and restaurants will certainly vote on whom made the very best pairings.

* Long time Las Vegas VIP and Public Relations king Sig Rogich is one of the two owners of the new restaurant Therapy opening next month on Fremont Street. He’s employed executive chef Daniel Ontiveros, who formerly worked at David Myers’ Comme Ca in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

* Fans of rebel chef Sammy DeMarco turned out in full force for his guest-chef supper at Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau’s Made L.V. in Tivoli Town on Wednesday night. It was the first time in 2 years that the tattooed chef was back in the kitchen area after crisscrossing the country for his two TELEVISION programs.

He served spicy lollipop Buffalo wings, walnut shrimp, Philly cheesesteak dumplings, the most tasty warm goat cheese cake with pistachio, infant beets and white balsamic in endive, Moroccan lamb meatballs with crispy spiced chickpeas and cucumber mint yoghurt, and his dessert version of s’mores with graham cracker-crusted chocolate dumpling toasted marshmallows, vanilla ice cream and chocolate crunchies from Hexx in Paris Las Vegas.

It was a frustrating success, with fans pleading that he return to a full-time Las Vegas place, and he concurred that he would like to settle behind a range right here instead of traveling America nonstop. Perhaps he ‘d be perfect for Made L.V.?

* Bravo to Cucina Italiano, the sister dining establishment to Brio in Las Vegas, which has set May 28 for its opening in Henderson promising all cooking performed in full view of visitors.

* From now on when you dine at one of the worldwide hit, hot STK steakhouses be it Miami, Greater london, New york city or Milan, you’ll see that the menu will be practically identical to the STK at the Cosmopolitan. That’s because Las Vegas master chef Stephen Hopcraft has added menu products here that he’s consistently taught and had actually copied by his chefs somewhere else in the empire.

His new variety of gourmet steakhouse food consists of crispy lobster tails, seared foie gras, beef tartare, tuna tartare with soy honey emulsion, spiced duck breast, glazed beef brief rib and jalapeno grits.

His day boat scallops atop risotto cake with fennel and saffron cream is a total winner, as was the seared foie gras atop huckleberry pancakes with kumquat marmalade (I’ll confess that I had a 2nd assisting, it was so fantastic).

Stephen is sensationally great, and his tasty food is just as fantastic.
