As the city of Las Vegas continues to grow in popularity as a foodie destination, it should come as no surprise that the city’s many chefs and restaurants are talking through Twitter to get the word out about their tasty culinary creations. Even local food writers are helping spread the word. Here’s just a sampling of some of the many Twitter accounts you should be following. These tweets are sure to leave you salivating for more.

Not on Twitter yet? What are you waiting for? Signing up is free, and it’s a great way to keep up to date on all your favorite chefs and restaurants. Sometimes, places will even tweet out special promotions to their Twitter followers, so if you consider yourself a real foodie, you can’t afford not to sign up. You can also message your favorite chefs directly—some are even known for their quick replies.

Sam DeMarco

For some fun insight into a chef’s life (in 140 characters or less, of course), follow chef Sam DeMarco of FIRST Food & Bar inside The Shoppes at The Palazzo. He responds to almost everyone who directly messages him, so be sure to send him any feedback or questions you have after visiting the restaurant.

Rick Moonen

The country’s preeminent culinary voice on sustainable seafood, RM Seafood chef Rick Moonen not only sends out plenty of fun photos on Twitter, but also educates his followers with his tweets. When the “Top Chef Masters” runner-up isn’t in the kitchen of his restaurant inside The Shoppes at Mandalay Bay, he’s been known to ask his followers for dining recommendations wherever his travels take him.
