John Curtas an attorney at Las Vegas’ Kummer Kaempfer Bonner & Renshaw writes restaurant reviews and reads them on KNPR public radio. He also writes for two publications, and a television station. Curtas said that his interest in food was sparked by a stint as a cook during law school. On one occasion, he found himself representing a hotel that housed a restaurant he was assigned to review. With trepidation, he informed the CEO that the review would not be positive. The CEO did not object. “I went there anonymously three times, and I had three very bad experiences,” he said. Curtas trashed a big-name restaurant in Las Vegas because after a high-priced meal ($250 a couple), a cockroach crawled out of the fruit bowl. The waiter’s response was to squish the roach underfoot and then offer a free cappuccino. Curtas’ fame follows him into the courtroom, where he has been asked by judges to recommend a restaurant. “It’s nice that people appreciate what I do,” he said.
