Every week, we get our cyber foodie news from around the world fix via Esquire columnist,John Mariani’s Newsletter, Virtual Gourmet. Mariani is also the author of The Encyclopedia of American Food & Drink and The Dictionary of Italian Food and Drink.

We were especially tickled this Valentine’s Day to find Las Vegas food critic, John A. Curtas weighing in on two of our top new "wish list" restaurants at CityCenter, TWIST by Pierre Gagnaire at Mandarin Oriental and Sage at ARIA Hotel & Casino.

You can read a teaser of John’s reviews here, or click here for the real, mouth-watering deal.
