#1 Competitive Eater Matt Stonie Coming To Martorano's Masters World Pasta Eating Contest
Taking place under the picturesque Arc de Triomphe at Paris Las Vegas, the contest will bring 12 professional and amateur competitive eaters together to eat as much of famed cook Steve Martorano’s signature Sunday Gravy pasta as they can in eight minutes. The championship will be held on National Pasta Day to celebrate the first anniversary of Martorano’s restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
Stonie recently dethroned world champion Joey Chestnut at the famous Fourth of July hot dog-eating contest, which resulted in Stonie moving up to the number-one position in the rankings. Stonie will be facing harsh competition from women’s champion and number-three-ranked in the world, Miki Sudo.
“I can’t wait to bring the Martorano’s Masters Eating Championship to Martorano’s at Paris Las Vegas, right at the center of the Las Vegas Strip,” said Steve Martorano. “It’s an honor to have world-champion eaters enjoying my famous Sunday Gravy.”
“This eight-minute contest will pit man vs. woman vs. carbs vs. each other and vs. themselves. Pasta has long been regarded as one of the most difficult events on the MLE circuit and this will be the first of this scale on such a grand stage,” said Sam Barclay, Major League Eating emcee. “Glory awaits those who step up to this ultimate challenge.”
The event is open to the public. All are welcome to witness history being made.
After the contest, an anniversary dinner with a special menu will take place at the restaurant with a number of Martorano’s famous friends and live music at 8 p.m. For reservations call 702-279-4934.
