Orange County’s award-winning Chef Rainer Schwarz was just named as the head chef of Emmitt’s Las Vegas restaurant and venue. Combining his unique Austrian roots with his classical training, Chef Rainer will be sure to bring his Southern California expertise to the Entertainment Capital of the World.
