Tracking chefs down for interviews at a music festival is a lot like herding cats. So when I happened to get former Las Vegas chefs John Tesar and Adam Sobel—who both did cooking demonstrations at Life Is Beautiful—in front of me at the same time, I finagled a mini roundtable discussion. Talking to two guys who intimately know the Las Vegas restaurant scene but who have the perspective of being out of it for a few years has its perks. For one, no filter! (Relax, publicists). So in addition to catching up, I got them to dish on what’s next for them.
