A Queen In The Kitchen: Eataly Las Vegas Grand Opening

On December 27th 2018, I had the honor in taking part of Eataly Las Vegas Grand Opening. Eataly Las Vegas has opened its doors to the public inside the megaresort hotel and casino Park MGM. The Las Vegas opening marks the brand’s second location on the West Coast. Authentic Italian eateries and high-quality products are featured there all together in a gigantic covered open space facing the Las Vegas Strip. Open daily until 11:00 pm, this is heaven for Italian food lovers and foodies visiting Sin City from around the globe.

Let’s have a look inside Eataly Las Vegas featured in the new episode of A Queen In The Kitchen, now on Vimeo and YouTube.
