The Socialite DJ and Mr. Black Tie visits Brio Tahiti Village

1470175026682I first heard about Brio as we were walking through Town Square making hits. Walking up in my head I knew how this would play out. The chances of them wanting a DJ were slim to none. But I went for it anyways. As I thought no. But I didn’t loose hope, because the head guy wasn’t there yet!
Fast forward some time ahead and Mr. Black Tie lets me know that a gentlemen at Brio wants to meet us. I was like okay cool, but it was the one in Tahiti Village. I’d never been there so I didn’t know what was going on. img_20160802_135051Once we got there I loved the neighborhood. Though it was far but really pretty. The gentlemen that we were set to meet wasn’t there that day. But the apparently gave instructions to for us to be treated.
Me not knowing exactly what that meant still loved the way it sounded. Lol. Then we were seated. Mr. Black Tie and I made sure that we knew what was going on first. Lol But we then found out that the manager there had invited us to come out and have a plate. I thought that was really cool. I mean, I’ve never been invited by the managers or any for me to just come out and eat. Majority of the restaurants that we go to are for radio, or DJing and things like that. But to be invited to the restaurant and a really nice one at that; That was a really cool moment for me.I had the pleasures of enjoying a grilled salmon with asparagus and sweet potatoes with a sweet glass of wine. And for desert a Crème Brule!img_20160802_144239
I mean, I was eating foods that I honestly only heard of on movies and T.V. So, it was cool to be living a part of a dream that I have often. Lol Thank you Ed at Brio in Tahiti Village! The food was awesome, the service was outstanding, and we had a really great time sir.

Oscar’s Steak House Interview Chef Martell with Mr.BlackTie !

I have learned so much from this interview about Steak and Latin Cusine !

Oscar’s Steakhouse

Named after former Las Vegas Mayor and mob attorney Oscar Goodman, Oscar’s is a glamorous and uniquely Las Vegas Steakhouse overlooking the lights of Fremont Street. Located inside the Plaza’s of the iconic glass dome, Oscar’s pays homage to the Vegas of yesteryear and has become a must-visit, only-in-Vegas dining destination thanks to its classic ambiance, memorabilia displays, handcrafted cocktails, including the former mayor’s signature martini, and a delicious menu of perfectly aged steaks, fresh seafood and made from scratch sides.

Carrying over Goodman’s reputation as the “Happiest Mayor in the Universe,” Oscar’s affectionately boasts itself as “The Happiest Steakhouse in the Universe.” The approach to food and service at Oscar’s is the same as Goodman’s approach to life – eat, drink and have fun!  But Meeting The Chef who At 16, Chef Jeffrey Martell took a job in a local seafood restaurant in New Jersey, looking for some extra spending money. Instead, he fell in love and found his passion for food. He followed that passion all over the United States and built a career based on attention to detail, creativity and excellence in execution.

Martell attended the Academy of Culinary Arts in Mays Landing, New Jersey. After completing his culinary education, he worked for a restaurant company, refining his style and expanding his approach in restaurants throughout the country, including at Nick’s Fishmarket in Chicago, Nick’s inside the five-diamond, five-star Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia, and Sarentos on the Beach at the Boca Raton Resort and Club.

He then moved to Las Vegas, where he helped open the Resort at Summerlin (later renamed the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa and Rampart Casino) as the Executive Sous Chef for the steakhouse. From there, he moved to the Orleans Casino, where he worked with former Chefs of the Year Christopher Johns and Larry Chumley.

After meeting his wife, Martell relocated to Florida for three years, serving as Executive Chef of the Pilot House in Key Largo. He and his wife then came back to Las Vegas, and he served as Assistant Executive Chef at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. He also began teaching at a local culinary school and became an active supporter and board member of Chefs for Kids, an organization helping the at-risk children of Southern Nevada. Martell’s work with Chefs for Kids as well as with various diversity initiatives and employee events at Excalibur earned him the recognition as a finalist for Volunteer of the Year for MGM Resorts International. Most recently, Martell was recognized as the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Las Vegas Chef of the Year for 2011.

Chef Martell brings his renowned culinary experience and community commitment to Oscar’s Beef · Booze · Broads where he prepares some of Oscar Goodman’s favorite recipes and the best steaks in Downtown Las Vegas. But you don’t have to take my word for it ! check it out for yourself ! Mr.BlackTie
