Hot off the grill!

Ten Master Chefs of France who are culinary stars right here join forces for the fifth-annual Festivino food-and-wine festival Oct. 9 at the Doge’s Palace grand entrance of the Venetian.

Previous Journey keyboardist and songwriter Jonathan Cain, a wine lover, will carry out and serve his Finale Wines. A part of the profits will benefit March of Dimes. A bit more than a dozen prominent wineries will be pouring their revered liquid from the grape.

* Friday marks the start of a 10-day oyster festival at Emeril Lagasse’s New Orleans Fish Home at MGM Grand.

Each night, various oysters will certainly be highlighted on the special Oyster Fest menu, including Gulf oysters, Louisiana grilled oysters, cornmeal fried Hama Hama oysters, Oysters Rockefeller, absinthe-poached oysters with blue crabmeat and fresh shucked oysters from across the nation.

* Restaurateur Sammy Ladeki is commemorating the 2nd anniversary of his Henderson place of Sammy’s Restaurant & & Bar. For $22, visitors can delight in pair of after-dinner drinks and a dessert in a Treats for Two promo.

On Thursday, Sammy hosts a Social Club Moet & & Chandon and four-course wine-pairing supper with a part from both promos benefiting the Dave Rice Structure.

* Herradura tequila head jimador Jose Cortes showed Monday night his skills in making use of simply a sharp shovel and knife to “dig up, chop up” an Algarve plant on the new SW Steakhouse outdoor patio that’s been reclaimed from part of the Lake of Dreams at Wynn Las Vegas.

Jose accomplished the task in less than 30 seconds: cutting loose the green foliage and after that slicing off a piece from the bulb to demonstrate how tequila is put.

Jose and Casa Herradura brand ambassador Kevin Vanegas hosted the five-course dish to celebrate Mexican Independence Day with four tequilas– one aged in 45 days, a second reposado in 11 months, the anejo for 2 years and the ultra blend of Anejo Herradura Ultra, a 4-year old tequila.

Wynn designer Roger Thomas has actually transformed the steakhouse now bathed in honey gold-colored decors.

* Since the flagship Carmine’s in New York City is commemorating its 25th anniversary this month, the Las Vegas place in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace will certainly honor the turning point by serving the dining establishment’s meatballs for only 25 cents(!) each from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 25.

* 2 new food principles will be presented when “Pawn Stars” star Rick Harrison opens his Pawn Plaza this fall: Inna Gadda di Pizza and Pawn Donut & & Coffee by Las Vegas food-and-beverage veterans Ralph Cautela and Olivier Zardoni, respectively.

Inna Gadda will offer classic New York-style pizzas, while Pawn Donut will serve extra-large specialized donuts with names and tastes influenced by Las Vegas celebrities, artists and locals.
