The Las Vegas Epicurean Affair at The Palazzo was the first foodie event I went to when I moved to Las Vegas. I’ve been to other foodie events but the Epicurean Affair remains one of the most fun nights I’ve had in Las Vegas.
The festival is held around the pools at The Palazzo and offers gourmet bites from a host of chefs and unlimited beverages. It’s a fun night out in Vegas before the temperatures get too hot for crowded events like this.
This year’s Las Vegas Epicurean Affair at The Palazzo takes place on May 26. You can find details on chefs and pricing in the press release below.
The Las Vegas Epicurean Affair returns to The Palazzo® on Thursday, May 26, 2016. The soiree, sponsored by the Nevada Restaurant Association (NvRA), features nearly 80 of the finest restaurants and nightclubs from around the city, along with a premier selection of libations.
Guests at the Las Vegas Epicurean Affair will spend the evening poolside at The Palazzo indulging in the best cuisine and cocktails offered from establishments both on and off The Strip.
“The Las Vegas Epicurean Affair is a must-attend event for anyone who wants the opportunity to taste food from the finest chefs, all for a great cause,” said Sebastien Silvestri, vice president of food and beverage for The Venetian and The Palazzo.
Participants include AquaKnox, B&B Ristorante, B&B Burger & Beer, Carlo’s Bakery, Carnevino Italian Steakhouse, db Brasserie, Delmonico Steakhouse, Hong Kong Café, Lagasse’s Stadium, Lavo Italian Restaurant, Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro, OTTO Enoteca Pizzeria, Public House, SUSHISAMBA, Table 10, and Tao Asian Bistro, to name a few.
Proceeds from the evening will fund NvRA’s educational and scholarship programs, including ProStart®, a national high school culinary skill and restaurant management program.
“We are thrilled to present this event, which for 33 years has provided Las Vegas the opportunity to help fund the educational dreams of high school students interested in culinary careers,” said NvRA president and CEO Katherine Jacobi. “It is an amazing occasion to enjoy many of the great restaurants that have made Las Vegas a culinary destination.”
