Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: September 2015

Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, located in the SLS hotel, has been lauded as a top restaurant by many media publications. Consumer sentiment seems to align, as the intimate steakhouse makes its debut in the No. 1 spot this month in the Foodable Top 25, according to September 2015 RSMI data. Joining the ranks in May, Bazaar Meat has maintained an impressive spot at No. 2, and for September, it beats out Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare by less than one point in Social Score.

Carson Kitchen and barMasa also flip-flop ranking positions and remain in the Top 5. But it’s the No. 5 spot that is more surprising, a restaurant that leaps up from No. 23. There were a couple other big movers in the positive sense, and one newcomer. This month, we welcome Todd English’s Olives.

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: May 2015

We are back in action with your Top 25 list, Las Vegas, and things have really been shaking up for the month of May! Cleo and Bazaar Meat, both SLS sweethearts, jump onto the list for the first time at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. If you’ve been following the monthly rankings, you know that Las Vegas is one city that’s been tough to budge on letting new restaurants in each month, never mind soaring to the top spots!

Sinatra, which not only championed the list last month, but has been in the Top 5 since August 2014, falls down to No. 8. Making Top 5 status for May, aside from Cleo and Bazaar Meat, are Yardbird Vegas, barMASA and SW Steakhouse.

Other newbies we’d like to welcome for the first time include Hearthstone, located in the Red Rock Casino with New York chef Brian Massie in the kitchen; Carson Kitchen, a concept by celebrity chef Kerry Simon; Made LV, an American Tavern helmed by long-standing LV chefs Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau; and Lucky Foo’s, with chef Shawn Giordano serving Asian fusion.

Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: February 2015

What’s going on in the Sin City’s culinary scene? The food in Las Vegas is still sinfully delicious and the same Top 25 restaurants have done a round-robin in the rankings. No new restaurants have made their way into the kitchen, but the two newbies from last month are holding their own against the veterans. While Yardbird Vegas has fallen down one spot to No. 6 from its debut into the Top 25, dbBrasserie has risen one spot to No. 3.

Sinatra, which was No. 2 last month, has swiped the crown from Jean-Georges Steakhouse and claimed the No. 1 title with a score of 186.11. Jean-Georges Steakhouse on the other hand has been bumped down from its throne to No. 10.

Welcome back a familiar face to the Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants, Table 10! This Modern American cuisine hotspot hasn’t graced the list since June 2014, but hopefully this comeback signals it’ll be here to stay.
