Faces Behind the Food

07 Oct 2016Tasting

When your stomach grumbles for a bite to eat when you are at Harrah’s Resort Southern California, you’ve got to make the decision of where you’re going to get your grub on. Do you go south of the boarder to ‘ritas Cantina, are you in the mood to sit down and savor your meal at Fiore, or are you in the mood for the variety of deliciousness found at the Buffet? We understand the sacrifice—it’s impossible to eat at every restaurant at once.

To celebrate the foodie in all of us, we’ve created the perfect interactive experience where you can indulge in the flavors of each restaurant all at once.  On October 15, join us for Faces Behind the Food.

This isn’t your ordinary sit-down dinner where you’re assigned a seat, served a plate of food and forced to make small talk with strangers. Instead you’ll have an opportunity to chat with Harrah’s Resort SoCal’s chefs and watch them in action. It isn’t every day that you have the chance to mingle with our team of food geniuses.

“The chefs and I are really excited to showcase our talent individually and as a team,” said Executive Chef Israel Ortiz. The chefs of each restaurant have worked hard to come to come up with menu items that are not always readily available on a daily basis.

The event starts at 6pm in The Events Center. Tickets are $50 to attend and are available for purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
