LAS VEGAS HAS ALWAYS meant glamour and excitement. It’s also emerged as one of the nation’s great eating cities, attracting acclaimed celebrity chefs and Michelin-Star winners to the bright lights of this 24-hour town.

But beyond the self-serving hype and the often only fleeting success found in the rough and tumble competition that is the restaurant world, there are hardworking people who not only excel in the kitchen but also make a real contribution to their profession and their community.

By doing so, they move business forward and proudly represent their industry.Our own Dave Simmons, Executive Chef of Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Las Vegas is just such a person.

On June 7th, in recognition of both his culinary expertise and dedication, the American Culinary Federation named Dave “Las Vegas Chef of the Year.” He told us that, as a restaurateur for forty years and a Vegas resident for a quarter century, he has long dreamed of winning this award.

Since this is the first time the title has ever been conferred on a chef from a free standing restaurant, as opposed to one operated by a casino, he finds it especially gratifying. He also sees it as a reflection of the fine reputation The Prime Rib has earned over the years.

Congratulations Chef Dave and thanks for all you’ve done and continue to do.
