A wealth of foodie wisdom

On today’s “Doug Elfman Show,” Heidi Knapp Rinella and I talk about 21 delicious restaurants in Las Vegas where rich, middle class and struggling locals and tourists can find terrific food.

Plus, what’s her go-to wine? Where are the most amazing mashed potatoes in the world? We even dish on the best salts and butters.

When you download the safe-for-work episode from iTunes, podcast apps or DougElfman.com, the episode comes with liner notes featuring links to all 21 restaurants.

Some of the places we chew the fat over are expected, such as MGM’s Joel Robuchon Restaurant, Elizabeth Blau’s Andiron, and the Palms’ Alize.

But Rinella and I also discuss the merits of affordable, amazing spots, from Viva Las Arepas and Crepe Expectations to India Palace.

Rinella is, as you know, the Review-Journal’s food critic, but she is also a James Beard judge, and she takes no freebies, so she commands an indispensable, ethical wealth of wisdom.
