EVA’S COOKING: Las Vegas got a taste of Latin flavor in mid-December when Eva Longoria Parker came to town for the opening of her restaurant Beso at the Crystals in the CityCenter development, teaming with celebrity chef Todd English for the second time.
“I love to cook, so I was very involved in all aspects of the menu,” she said, adding that she and NBA-star husband Tony Parker visit Vegas regularly. “Las Vegas really has become a wonderful destination for food and dining.”
The actress — who was the last tenant to sign on to the Crystals before the project’s debut but the first to open — celebrated the launch in Vegas style, partying with MGM Mirage executives and fellow Crystals tenants into the evening on Wednesday. Despite her clear loyalty to her kitchens, Longoria Parker fessed up to having stepped out to try other things, too. “One of my other favorite restaurants here is Yellowtail,” Longoria said.
Longoria wasn’t the only recognizable face on hand — Priscilla Presley turned out for the opening, as did designer Monique Lhuillier, along with former “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” host Robin Leach, Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte and casino magnate George Maloof.
