Rumors have been a-swirling and now the Sin City blogs are abuzz with reports that NYC star chef Andrew Carmellini has signed a deal to bring his show to Las Vegas. The Vegas heavyweights (the Wynn, the Venetian) have been courting Carmellini for years, but now comes rumblings that the MGM Grand has finally landed him, and that Carmellini will allegedly take over the current Fiamma space at the hotel. Carmellini's PR is denying the rumor stating that it is "flat out untrue," but only time will tell if these rumblings pan out to mean a big coup for AC. Locanda Vegas, anyone??
