Lip Smacking Foodie Tours Offers a Taste of Vegas

By Matt Swenson, November 6, 2017

Lip Smacking Foodie Tours will prove to you that for all of the fine dining Las Vegas has to offer, perhaps the best meal you’d eat there is a simple plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce. Or maybe it would be a Greek salad starring the freshest tomatoes you’ve ever had. Have a sweet tooth? Four desserts (including a homemade Italian doughnut!) will win you over.

The award-winning Lip Smacking Foodie Tours ensures you and your group of up to 75 people can enjoy the best of the best in one night at a reasonable cost ($125-$300; the priciest includes a helicopter ride). Donald Contursi, the tour company’s president, does the hard part by regularly scouring Vegas for best new eats—a tough job, we know.

“I’ve worked in a lot of restaurants and tried a lot of them,” Contursi says. “Each restaurant has some amazing things to highlight. With my local insider information, I thought it would be great to share.”

Average groups are about 10 people, says Contursi. Guides make sure everyone sits next to a different person at each stop to assist networking opportunities. Several large meetings organizations in Las Vegas have already used the company to rave reviews.

Each of the seven tours contains a mix of adventurous (duck legs, foie gras) and comfort, like Scarpetta’s spaghetti, Milos’ salad and Cucina by Wolfgang Puck’s dessert sampler. Maybe not all is for you—but it doesn’t have to be.

Think of a tour as a taste of Vegas, with a side of the city’s savory history thrown between meals.
