I was raised a few blocks from Downtown Fremont, what many people consider to be the heart of Las Vegas. I've seen this town grow over the last 27 years. So many places have opened and closed trying to make the cut. I have had the privilege of trying so many of them. There is a certain love to be found in all the wonderful food and culture this city brings. The strip isn't my favorite destination. I prefer hidden treasures and hole in the wall diners.
