The genius behind Jean Philippe Patisserie is none other than Chef Jean Philippe Maury. From the South of France, Chef Jean Philippe is a master when it comes to pastry and chocolate; indeed, he and his teammates won the gold medal at the 2002 World Pastry Championship. He now operates two patisseries within Las Vegas — one at Bellagio and the other at ARIA — that feature a host of mouth-watering delicacies, including pastries, chocolate, and gelato, which can be sampled every day and night. The Bellagio outfit is a particularly unique space as it houses the world’s largest chocolate fountain, which was created by the chef.
In 1939 Mr. Paul Pink established a hot dog stand that would become one of the most famous joints to serve top-quality hot dogs. Fast-forward to the 2000s and Pink’s is now a popular destination in Las Vegas where locals, tourists, and even a celebrity or two go to sample a variety of tasty hot dogs. From classic dogs to speciality dogs, from burgers to vegetarian options, the menu has a wide selection of items surely to appeal to many tastes. Highlights include the chilli cheese dog, with American cheese, chilli, mustard, and onions; the spicy Mojave dog made with a polish sausage, nacho cheese, jalapeños, grilled onions, guacamole, and tomatoes; plus several sides, including beer-battered onion rings and French fries.
