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.
