New Jersey-based foodies Laury and John Bakie sampled 750 meals in
Las Vegas and then penned a book to help visitors enjoy eating in Sin City.
The 280-page coffee-table book, ‘‘The World of Las Vegas Dining’’ (NJR
Publications, $48) contains 700 photos and the inside scoop on local
restaurants and the world-renowned chefs who run them, such as Bobby Flay,
Todd English, Emeril, Mario Batali, and Tom Colicchio. You’ll find out how
they made it to the top and where you can savor their creations. The Bakies
are researching a similar book that will focus on Boston’s culinary scene.
