Miami and Las Vegas have a lot in common: decadence, scorching heat, monied patrons.

Add chef Jordan Hoffman to the list. A recent transplant from Vegas, he is now the executive chef of Bianca, the Delano's swank, stylish Italian eatery.

After bouncing around to various restaurants in his early career, Hoffman spent eight years in Vegas working for one of the world's hottest chefs: Joel Robuchon. Then he opened a restaurant in Sin City's famous pyramid-shaped hotel, the Luxor, before flying south like so many other chefs who've made their way to the Magic City.
