Furniture World News on

World Market Center, Las Vegas announced that the second annual “Alfresco, A Taste of Las Vegas” will bring together flavors that tantalize during an unforgettable Las Vegas evening, Monday, August 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on opening night of Summer Las Vegas Market.

Attendees will sample culinary creations from celebrated Las Vegas chefs who will personally oversee the creations served, including celebrity Chef Bradley Ogden, while mingling amid the latest outdoor furnishings and illumination of the Alfresco Spaces display.  Live cooking demonstrations, rhythmic sounds from a club DJ and scintillating video montages will provide an ever-changing and intriguing backdrop to a picturesque evening.

“World-class dining isn’t just about the edible delights and delicacies, it’s about the ambiance, the atmosphere and the furnishings,” said Robert Maricich, President and Chief Executive Officer of World Market Center Las Vegas. “Our prominent restaurateurs know that, and so do our attendees. What better way to emphasize that point than to bring together the best in food and furnishings, all under the beautiful desert sky?”

“Alfresco, a Taste of Las Vegas” will be hosted outdoors in the Grand Plaza at World Market Center Las Vegas. The mood will be set as the Grand Plaza is magically transformed into a first-class resort featuring a dazzling imagined swimming pool, stylish resort cabana and surrounded by inviting chaise lounges and other tempting outdoor seating, tables and more.

The distinguished participating chefs and their award-winning teams will share some of their tastings and other immersive and entertaining culinary experiences with attendees.  Restaurants that will be represented include Charlie Palmer Restaurants, Mario Batali’s B&B Ristorante, Bradley Ogden, Mesa Grill, Payard Patisserie & Bistro, Restaurant Guy Savoy, Emeril's Fishhouse, Sinatra, Botero and Mundo, A Culinary Haute Spot.

“The flavor of Las Vegas is a sampling from around the world,” says Maricich. “One of the most difficult choices that face our visitors is where to make a dinner reservation. By bringing together this culinary tour de force, we’re saving them that decisions and sharing with them the very best.”

Las Vegas has developed a stellar reputation as a dining destination. Renowned magazines, such as Bon Appétit, Wine Spectator, Gourmet, Robb Report and Esquire have paid tribute to our foodie frontier. World Market Center would like its attendees to experience that side of Las Vegas and more during Market. “Alfresco, a Taste of Las Vegas” allows World Market Center Las Vegas to do just that.
