Gourmet tricks to make your lips smack
With so many great restaurants in Las Vegas, it can be hard to decide where to eat. This is where Lip Smacking Foodie Tours comes in. The company offers customers a fun and innovative way to discover new restaurants and explore downtown.
“It’s a fabulous experience,” says Donald Contursi, president of Lip Smacking Foodie Tours. “People often say it’s the highlight of their whole trip.”
Each tour is led by an engaging expert guide, who points out fascinating under-the-radar sights and shares intriguing knowledge about the city along the way.
“A lot of times people don’t know how Las Vegas started or how the Fremont Street Experience came about,” says Contursi. “We go into all of this history and explain the revitalization of downtown and the Downtown project, so that guests enjoy the visit much more than just eating.”
Guests visit three restaurants on the tour; Carson Kitchen, Therapy and 7e and Carson, where they are treated like VIPs and taken to the best tables to enjoy a specially curated and pre-set 3-4 course menu with an optional drinks package.
“Our guide is really cool and it’s so much fun to try different food and drinks in the different restaurants.” says Canadian tourist Shanelle Bandoe. She signed up for the tour because she wasn’t sure which restaurants to visit. “Being from Canada, I would never have known to visit these restaurants, so I’m glad we did this tour.”
Shaele Hanson is also happy to have done the tour. Also originally from Canada and a small business owner, Hanson has been to Las Vegas a few times and always comes back downtown. “We love downtown, we really love its culture and history,” says Hanson. “It’s nice to see small businesses coming together and we really like supporting, so that’s great.”
