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.
