Chefs from the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas took part in the second Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival Aug. 9-12. The resort showcased its restaurants with The Slice, a two-story mobile haven featuring the design of the Cosmopolitan.
Guests sampled art from the Art-o-mat, kept cool with boozy popsicles, lounged in both levels of The Slice and snapped mementos within a dedicated photo booth. Festival-goers were also treated to an exciting performance by Third Eye Blind during Saturday’s Lexus Live on the Plaza event from high atop The Slice’s second story roof deck.
Visitors of The Slice included The Cosmopolitan’s chef partners David Myers of Comme Ca, Stephen Hopcraft of STK and Scott Conant of Scarpetta; TV personalities Andrew Zimmern (“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern”), Giada De Laurentiis (“Giada at Home”), Duff Goldman (“Ace of Cakes”), Guy Fieri (“Guy’s Big Bite,” “Diners Drive-Ins and Dives”), Dean McDermott (“Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood”), Patti Stanger (“Millionaire Matchmaker”), Linda Thompson (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”) and actors Eriq La Salle and Timothy Olyphant; iconic chefs Wolfgang Puck, Francois Payard and Ming Tsai; “Top Chef” alum Fabio Viviani; Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban; and musicians Third Eye Blind.
