Las Vegas Awaiter sets down a wide shallow bowl in front me. It holds a small pile of thimble-size Nantucket scallops crowned with a thatch of fried potato. Moments later, he carefully pours in a pale ivory soup parmentier until the scallops are flooded like an island sinking beneath the waves. As I bask in the dank earthy aroma of black truffles tucked beneath the scallops, the windows flash white, and outside a fog bank rolls in, throwing a cool light over the room.

How many high-end restaurants can Vegas support, particularly in this economy? Easily a dozen more just opened in the new $11-billion CityCenter complex on the Strip and a number of them definitely have enough wow factor to pull in the hungry tourists. Admittedly, the planning for CityCenter began long before the slump, still, here comes Michelin three-star Paris chef Pierre Gagnaire joining his illustrious (and extravagantly starred) colleagues Joel Robuchon, Alain Ducasse and Guy Savoy in a gamblers' paradise.

Chef Joachim Splichal seems to have an inexhaustible supply of rabbits when it comes to Art of Dining, the annual fund-raiser he coordinates for the Newport Harbor Art Museum. I refer to the rabbits a magician pulls out of a hat, not the ones we eat spit-roasted. Sunday night marked the seventh time that Splichal has been at the helm of this dinner (held, as always, at the Four Seasons Hotel), and each year it has been a most interesting diversion.

DRESSED IN scruffy jeans, a tight, gray T-shirt and cowboy boots, Rudy Kurniawan slid into a front-row seat at a Christie's Beverly Hills auction room. He didn't blend with the cashmere and Cole Haan crowd hoping to pick up a few bottles of rare and old wine. And it wasn't just his wardrobe. In a few short hours that Saturday afternoon, the then-29-year-old Indonesian-born Kurniawan spent an estimated $500,000. For one case of 24 half-bottles of 1947 Chateau Cheval Blanc, the famed St.

The Continental: A few weeks ago a restaurant opened with an old idea: Euro-cuisine. Europa identifies menu items by their country of origin. Main courses include a Donau schnitzel from Germany ($20), peanut-crusted lamb from France (or so it says here; it's $27) and lobster in a creamy white wine sauce from Spain ($34). Chef Roushdy Shenouda, originally from Egypt, was recruited from Cullen Ranch, a sort of hunting spa in Texas.
