Jean-Philippe Maury

JP first came to Vegas in 1998 to be the executive pastry chef at Bellagio and opened his now legendary Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie there in 2005. A second one opened at Aria in December. Maury won the coveted Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Pastry Chef in France) before he came to America, so his credentials are impeccable. So are his éclairs, tarts, cheesecakes, exquisite line of chocolate truffles, nougat bars and the many ice creams displayed in two shops. Everyone comes to see those chocolate fountains as well, which have become his signature.
