John Curtas has covered the Las Vegas food and restaurant scene since 1995. For 15 years, he was heard weekly on KNPR – Nevada Public Radio’s Food For Thought as its on-air restaurant critic. Since 2008, he has been the “Resident Foodie” on KSNV TV (NBC) Channel 3’s “Wake Up With The Wagners,” seen every Friday morning in Las Vegas. He is the co-author of “Eating Las Vegas – The 50 Essential Restaurants,” now in its fourth edition, and is the scribe behind the Eating Las Vegas website, where he chronicles his weekly eating adventures across Sin City. He describes himself as an imperious epicure who gets just as excited over a great burger or taco as he does about Lobster Thermidor (or some indecipherable molecular mess). Curtas also writes for VEGAS, Desert Companion and other local magazines, and modestly claims to have eaten in more Las Vegas restaurants, more often, than anyone ever.
