The pandemic has shined a new light on food. We’re spending more time thinking about it; and, despite closures, we’re enjoying it together more too. As we try to escape the monotony of quarantine, however, safety is still the main concern for most. So, what’s a food lover to do? How do you enjoy all that Las Vegas has to offer without breaking the bank or compromising health concerns? From the trendy modern takes to the classic dishes of the entertainment capital, how do you decide where to eat, or what to get when you finally do?

Created by a food lover and service-veteran, it’s the perfect VIP dining experience for any occasion!
The Foodie Matchmaker
Tour president, Donald Contursi, is a food-connoisseur. With experience from some of the greatest restaurants and establishments in Las Vegas, it’s to be expected. Over the years, Donald became the guy to-know for the best of the best in cuisine. Thus, his encyclopedia gave birth to food tours.
How great is it to have someone “in-the-know” show you the best restaurants in town!Donald Contursi
After the widely successful start of his first tour, the Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, he aimed his sights on something more COVID-friendly. We may not be able to gather for full foodie-events, but the option to experience something new and tasty shouldn’t be lost. Unlike its predecessor, the Finger Licking Foodie Tour is self-guided, for a minimum of two people, with all the details and transactions taken care of ahead of time. Made with social-distancing in mind, guests can eat and drink without the worries of the ‘new normal’ looming above.
What’s Vegas without the VIP experience? Afterall, it’s a city where exclusivity is a selling point. Donald is here to be your food-ambassador and link to all the best in he city. Nearly all the attractions in town are temporarily unavailable or limited, but food can easily become a private attraction to thrill in more than one sense! That’s the defining goal in all of his tours.
The newest lineup from the Finger Licking Foodie tour took our resident food-lovers through Chinatown, a rapidly growing hub of multicultural flavor. Each restaurant on the stop provides reserved accommodations, a ‘must-have’ menu that is flexible to vegan and gluten-free guests, and an optional drink package to compliment your meal.
When it’s difficult to get reservations due to closures, or spots being at half capacity, to walk right in and have your table waiting is incredible!Donald Contursi
You begin your tour with a virtual map of the night and curated information on every stop. Our first along Spring Mountain road was EDO Gastro Tapas & Wine. Short for Extra Day Off, this Barcelona-style restaurant has won a number of awards, including the Desert Companion 2019 Restaurant of the Year. After a quick uber ride, the next stop was Lamaii, a high-end and modern take on Thai cuisine. With the owners carrying over 20 years of hospitality experience, they serve an elegant and Instagramable vibe with their dishes. Last on the trip was Sparrow + Wolf, a mash of multicultural and modern dishes. Named after chef Brian Howard’s spirit animals, they boast a sustainable kitchen of innovation and balance.
