Las Vegas Top 25 Restaurants: August 2014

What happens at Vegas restaurants, doesn't stay there. It gets talked about online, creating quite the social buzz! Since Vegas is a popular travel destination, it is fitting that most of the restaurants on our top 25 list are located within hotels and resorts.

The list features 23 veterans, with only two new restaurants making the list. These newbie restaurants are Wing lei, making it's debut at no. 15 and Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak at no.24. Bartolotta Ristorante Di Mare is no. 1, a fine dining restaurant that has appeared on the top 25 several times before. This top dog and the no. 2 ranked restaurant, Sinatra are both located at the Wynn Las Vegas resort. The cuisine at this resort creates a lot of social activity, four other restaurants on this month's top 25 are part of the resort.

The major shifts on the list include Eat., which moved from being no. 24 last month, to in the top 5 this month. Michael Mina almost did not make the top 25 last month, but launched up to no. 10 this August.
