It’s probably the most celebrity chef-stuffed culinary event in the entire universe, but the best part about Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Apétit is that it shines the spotlight on a truly unique restaurant landscape: the few dazzling miles that make up the Las Vegas Strip. Those big chef names—this year’s lineup includes Alain Ducasse, Bobby Flay, Buddy Valastro, Giada De Laurentiis, Gordon Ramsay, Guy Savoy, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, José Andrés, Michael Mina, Nobu Matsuhisa, Scott Conant and Wolfgang Puck—are just role players, really. The Strip is the star, the only place in the world where all these unbelievable meals and restaurant experiences can coexist.

The Grand Tasting at Caesars Palace’s Garden of the Gods pool oasis is always the foundation of Uncork’d, set for April 27-30, but there are plenty of other events you’ll want to check out (with tickets remaining): Thursday’s Master Series Dinner at the Caesars version of iconic eatery Mr Chow; Friday’s Lunch Like a Spaniard with Andrés at the Cosmopolitan’s Jaleo; Saturday’s ultimate teppan experience dinner with the man himself, Nobu; and the infamous Uncork’d closer, brunch at Rao’s with Frank

Pellegrino Jr. and the family. It doesn’t get any more Vegas than that.
