VegasWire: Inside Jet Tila's Wazuzu at Encore

When media isn't supposed to take pictures at the new Encore at the Wynn, look at the Los Angeles Times getting all secret-shot bloggy. The new Vegas resort opened precisely at 8pm last night, and the Daily Travel & Deal Blog snuck this shot of Wazuzu, one of five new restaurants at the resort. But they fail to mention the LA connection: Chef Jet Tila, who's known around these parts for his cooking classes, "Good Food" spots on KCRW, and culinary tours through Thai Town (his family owns the Bangkok Market), heads up Wazuzu. The name means "nine dragons" in Chinese, dragons being the obvious theme in the dining room---that dragon above 90,000 Swarovski crystals and 2,400 flickering lights. A far cry from Thai Town, but come on, it's Vegas.
