This pandemic has been taxing and stressful on everyone, that is no secret. In this time of unknowing, it is nice to shed light on the good happening, as well; especially right here in the Las Vegas community. A beam of light is the creation of Chefs4Vegas.
During the state shut down, there was a surplus of food and products that many chefs and restaurants were sitting on. As a result, many were reaching out to venders and colleagues for advice on where to try and appropriately dispose of the items. Tahiti Village’s Executive Chef, Jason Diaz and other local chefs gathered together on April 18th in a dirt lot off of Tenaya and Warm Springs to find a solution.
After brainstorming, talking, and creating a blue print it was there in that dirt lot that Chefs4Vegas was created. “It even rained on us that day but that didn’t stop us from doing what we felt was right,” said Daiz.
That following week they set up a food bank with the help of other vendors and local chefs, in that day they were able to feed over 300 families in need. “Whenever you can give to your community and provide for them, it is heartwarming,” said Diaz.
This was supposed to be a one-time deal, however the demand grew, the families in need increased and Chefs4Vegas continued helping the community for 10 consecutive weeks. To date, the chefs as a group along with other community partners have provided sustenance to over 10,000 local Las Vegas families.
On June 16th, Chefs4Vegas was awarded a Proclamation from the City of Las Vegas for helping the local community in time of crisis. Chefs4Vegas has now been granted a 501C3, which acknowledges them as a full-fledged nonprofit organization.
“I grew up with not a whole bunch and I relied on food pantries. I know how much that means to a community and I know how much that means to a lot of people. If I could give back and do that, try to do right for them, that’s all this is really about,” said Diaz.
June 24th was another big day for Chefs4Vegas as they traveled to McGill, Nevada to set up a food pantry for that community. “This pandemic really hit hard in that area and there were lots of reports of people not having a lot to survive on. It is very sad times we are in,” said Diaz.
In the midst of all of the sadness, it is heartwarming to know that there are good people in our community that care and are willing to go the extra mile to make sure that everyone has what is necessary during these times.
“The thank you’s and the social media posts from some of these people that really, really needed it is amazing. There is no better feeling then to give back to your community,” said Diaz.
Be sure to give Chef Jason a social distanced high-five or say hello the next time you see him. He and many others have done so much for Las Vegas in such a short amount of time. We are extremely proud of our Chef and all that he has done and continues to do every day.
We would also like to say thank you to the other chefs and some of the vendors involved in Chefs4Vegas!

The Arturo’s Village Pizza story begins with a boy from Brooklyn; a boy who never forgot the sights, the sounds and especially the pizza. There was something about the elusiveness in the flavor he could never shake, but it seemed to exist to greater or lesser degrees in every family-owned pizza joint running the length of Coney Island Ave.
He was a regular at their storefronts for years, but the pie-tossing proprietors never knew his name and never once bothered to ask if it was Tony or Joey or Frankie or, more to the fact, Artie. The boy’s name is Artie Spector.
Artie always knew what he wanted and that was two slices, always for the road. One of the built-in benefits of Brooklyn pizza is its portability and pliability. Artie had perfected the famous double stack at a young age. An ingenious 2-for-1 intake method in which consumers place one slice on top of the other, allowing them to eat twice as much pizza in half the time.
These are the memories Artie took with him when he eventually left his hometown to pave his way in the world, a decision that took him far from his city roots. He started out and found his calling in Hawaii, by converting condominium units into deluxe timeshare resorts. It was the vacation ownership industry that led him to Las Vegas.
When Artie moved to Las Vegas he built what we know today as Tahiti Village Resort and Spa. Over the years he furnished it with all kinds of desirable amenities, including a restaurant, spa, and lazy river. Although, his dream since boyhood was to have his very own Brooklyn-style pizzeria and that is where Arturo’s Village Pizza was created.
Arturo’s Village Pizza has been entrusted to our very own Executive Chef, Jason Diaz, “One of my very first promotions was taking over a pizzeria and pizza has always held a special place in my heart. I’ve been fortune enough to have good people teach me how to make good pizza.”
The dough is the foundation of any pizza and Chef Jason has given everyone at Arturo’s Village Pizza nothing but the best. “The dough recipe is mine. I reached out to a vendor to help in making the dough and they are making it and shipping it to me, fresh from Los Angeles,” said Diaz.
Everyone has heard of Brooklyn style pizza, but not a lot have tasted the real deal. Here at Arturo’s Village Pizza we have specifically picked certain pizzas that are true to Artie’s past.
“We wanted to stay as authentic as possible to what Brooklyn style pizza is. If you take a look at what they do, a lot of what we do is mimicked. I just wanted to try and carry on that tradition and make it so it is New York style,” said Diaz.
All of the pizzas on the menu mean something to Chef Jason and they all have something he likes. He can’t choose just one favorite because he loves them all just the same! However, he did mention that the fan favorite has been the Brooklyn Meat Pie; with Italian sausage, Pepperoni, Bacon and Ham, it is the ultimate pie for a meat lover.
“I know it means something to the owner and all we want is for Arturo’s to succeed. I know he wouldn’t have trusted me with what he did if he didn’t think we could pull it off,” said Diaz. We want everyone to know what Arturo’s is and stands for. No one at Tahiti Village should leave without trying real, Brooklyn style pizza.
“I’m looking forward to what we might be able to do further on. The feedback and reviews from everyone coming in has been amazing… it is a cool ride to be on right now,” said Diaz.
What Artie learned and tasted back in Brooklyn, has been brought back to Tahiti Village, and now – quite ironically – a South Pacific-themed resort is the one and true purveyor of authentic Brooklyn-style pizza in Las Vegas.
Don’t forget to stop into Arturo’s Village Pizza the next time you are at the resort and see how Artie’s dream came true!
Lots of people think of our tropical resort paradise as a little slice of heaven. Beginning this summer, with the anticipated grand opening of our new Arturo’s Village Pizza, they’ll be eating a little slice of heaven.
Construction is set to begin in early February on the pizzeria, which will be located on the first floor of the Tahiti Village lobby building. Thematically, Arturo’s Village Pizza will project a casual, New York City-style vibe. Visitors can either eat in or grab and go. The main entrance will be located outside the main lobby building opposite 17˚ South Booze & Bites, our onsite bar and restaurant. There will also be an exterior patio entrance near Tower 1 on the north side of the property.
“People can expect the pizza in Arturo’s Pizzeria to have the highest quality ingredients,” said Chad Nelson, Tahiti Village Director Food and Beverage. “We are excited to use the best cheeses, dough, and ingredients to create an amazing product. Arturo’s will be a great addition to our resort and will round out our food and beverage amenities available to our guests at Tahiti Village.”
Arturo’s sauce will be made in-house daily and includes San Marzano tomato, garlic, herbs, and Grana Padano cheese. Visitors can choose from five different pizzas on the menu and two prepared salads. Pizza can be ordered by the slice or by the full pie.
The renderings below are a representation of what you can expect, but is subject to change. We at family friendly Tahiti Village Resort & Spa on the south end of the world famous Las Vegas Strip are excited to bring this project to fruition and will communicate our progress over the course of the construction.
Take a bite out of summer with a visit to Tahiti Village, Las Vegas’ favorite tropical resort paradise! Dining in Las Vegas never tasted better.
