Where Las Vegas - - WHERE INSIDE -

Along­side An­thony Bour­dain, Nigella Law­son and Ludo Lefebvre, Brian Malarkey was the win­ning judge/men­tor on ABC’s “The Taste” Sea­son 1. A past “Top Chef” fi­nal­ist, Malarkey has judged sev­eral se­ries on the Food Net­work, TLC, Travel Chan­nel, Bravo and more. A head­liner at food and wine fes­ti­vals across the coun­try, Malarkey has cre­ated seven wildly suc­cess­ful res­tau­rants in the United States and is ex­pand­ing; in Las Ve­gas, he’s opened Searsucker at Cae­sars Palace, and, this win­ter, will open Herringbone at Aria. That’s ex­actly what it is. Some chefs want you to come in and eat the food, and that’s what the ex­pe­ri­ence is about. I firmly be­lieve that a din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is the mem­o­ries that you leave with—the con­ver­sa­tions, the jokes told. The food is a fa­cil­i­ta­tor of mem­o­ries. It brings peo­ple to­gether. The real mem­o­ries are what hap­pens when hu­mans in­ter­act with each other. Austin, Texas, is ab­so­lutely mind-blow­ing with how many amaz­ing res­tau­rants are there. And I can never get enough of New York City—I’m a kid in a candy store there, there's al­ways so much go­ing on. And since I’m from the North­west, any­time I can get back to Port­land or Seat­tle, I’m ex­cited. White wine. But I don’t think it’s guilty. I love char­cu­terie and cheeses also.
