King Crab Miso Soup at Sushi Roku

Just like the traditional miso soup, but better! The Japanese soup is enhanced with a large king crab leg making it more than just an appetizer. The best part is you don’t have to struggle to get the juicy crabmeat and the broth gives it more flavor. Pair it with Sawanoi Junmai Ginjo Sake for the ultimate experience. $15, in the Forum Shops at Caesars, 733-7373.

Marc St. Jacques

By Max Jacobson

It’s hard to miss 6-foot-5-inch Marc St. Jacques, executive chef at Michael Mina in Bellagio. He fairly towers over everyone else on the line in the kitchen. He is French Canadian, as his name might imply, and his appreciation for fresh ingredients began early in life, during summer trips to his grandparents’ farm. He came to the United States at age 19 and earned a degree from the Culinary Institute of America. He’s been cooking for Mina for several years now, and before moving to Las Vegas with his wife last year, he manned the stoves at Mina’s restaurant at the MGM Grand in Detroit.
