Welcome to our food issue. The evolution of Las Vegas into a food destination has been quite the epicurean treat. A constellation of star chefs have joined the desert vacation mecca as five-star resorts/casinos compete to add Michelin-starred chefs to their venues.
On our cover, you will find Maine Day Boat scallops from Executive Chef Shawn McClain’s restaurant, Sage at Aria. Over the last 15 years Chef McClain has developed a collection of award-winning restaurants. His innovative concepts have earned him multiple accolades, including James Beard Award nominations for Outstanding New Restaurant, and Esquire magazine’s “Chef of the Year.” He has appeared on Food Network’s Iron Chef America, which resulted in an epic win against Chef Marc Forgione. Join us as we interview Chef McClain as he redefines the American cuisine using only the freshest of ingredients.
In this issue, you will want to curb your steak lust for a minute and enjoy our interview with Chef Kenny Chye as he transforms Asian cuisine with a vegetarian twist. Chef Chye, swears by the curative properties meatless dishes possess as he takes Las Vegas one veggie at a time.
Sometimes minor adjustments can have an outsize impact on our health; try out our vegan menu card for a healthy transformation. These dishes can convert even the staunchest of carnivores to all-vegan.
As we go into the highlight of our issue, we talk to high-rise expert Randy Char, Broker, and President of Char Luxury; as he shares how he transformed the vertical market at One Queensridge Place with record sales of over $100 million over the course of his position as Senior VP of Operations. Char gives us wonderful insight to this phenomenal property and why it’s the perfect time to invest.
At High Rise Life, we believe that living healthy life is about balance. You do what you can. And that’s really the key, isn’t it? The importance of balance: a constant, vital dialogue between mindful living and occasional indulgence between Chef McClain’s famous foie gras brulee and a gourmet charbroiled burger from Guy Fieri’s from our burger bucket list. Because saying yes to some things doesn’t have to mean saying no to everything else.
After all, as anyone who’s tried a quick-fix diet knows, the only true solutions are the sustainable ones.
So, here’s to your health—and to having it all.
