All of the best chefs in Vegas go to Brett Ottolenghi to source hard-to-find luxury ingredients like truffles, foie gras, and caviar, which he sells out if his cozy gourmet food shop, Artisanal Foods. This fall, he teamed up with long-time Vegas chef Johnny Church to set up a tiny six-seat restaurant that serves a tasting menu during lunch five days a week. It's an incredibly intimate, special experience, and the combination of Church's experimental style and Ottolenghi's penchant for sourcing exotic ingredients makes each meal more unusual and innovative than the next. If you don't have time for a full meal, it's still worth stopping in to taste the rare cheeses and cured meats. Needless to say, it's a mainstay if you're doing any cooking during your stay.
