A Trip to Graceland cupcake at the Cupcakery

Ask for the bacon cupcake at the Cupcakery and you will be rewarded with an ode to Elvis. A chunky peanut-butter cupcake is topped with a towering dollop of banana frosting. Yes, it could stop there, but since everything is better with bacon—even your cupcake—the frosting is then rolled in crispy real bacon bits and drizzled with honey. $3 each, subject to availability; 7175 W. Lake Mead Blvd., Suite 118; 9680 S. Eastern Ave., Suite 100; and in the Monte Carlo.

José Andrés

By Max Jacobson

The 41-year-old chef is the subject of a cover story in the current issue of Wine Spectator, and the man seems never to run out of energy. Andrés learned his craft at Spain’s famed elBulli. He has since created unique restaurant concepts in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Las Vegas, but his most unusual venture, China Poblano at the Cosmopolitan, is a departure even for him.
