A host of fine dining and lifestyle magazines - including Bon Appetit, Wine Spectator, Gourmet, Robb Report and Esquire - have honored the city for its fantastic fare and hailed individual restaurants for their exquisite cuisine, created by the likes of Hubert Keller, Alain Ducasse, Emeril Lagasse and Wolfgang Puck. To accompany its growing list of world-class chefs, Las Vegas has attracted more master sommeliers than any other U.S. city.
