Tired of going away for a weekend and having that vacation spot feel, you know, different from home? Then it's your lucky day. Because God forbid Las Vegas should have any indigenous cuisine, Grub Street's Daniel Maurer broke news yesterday that potentially three more noted New York restaurateurs will be joining the other big-name, franchised eateries in Sin City. Soon, it seems, you'll be able to gamble and ogle showgirls (do they even still have showgirls in Vegas?) while dining Terrance Brennan's Artisanal, Jeffery Chodorow's Asia de Cuba, or François Payard's Payard Patisserie. Grub Street's got the details.
