Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: June 2016

The Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants for June 2016 are in, based on consumer data collected by Foodable Labs. The top 5 got a good shaking up.

The top five is a combination of brand newcomers and old favorites. Last quarter’s one and two, Scarpetta and Bardot Brasserie, fall to three and four — pushed out by Andiron at No. 2 (whose first time on the list was in January before falling off the following quarter) and brand-newcomer to the list, Portofino, who took No. 1. Rounding out the top five is another brand-newcomer Harvest by Roy Ellamar.

Portofino, in the Mirage, is described as “handcrafted Italian coastal cuisine,” to which world-class executive chef Michael LaPlaca provides a modern twist. Everything from the burrata agnolotti to the crab cake arancini is prepared to order and made by hand with simple ingredients.

Andiron Steak & Sea, described as “a celebration of classic and contemporary,” on its website, elegantly features “all things grilled, roasted, seared, and shucked” from calamari, crab, and lobster to shrimp and oysters.

The rest of the Top 25 features four more restaurants that have never made the list before: HerringboneEcho & RigKabuto, and Twist by Pierre Gagnaire.
