When people think of transcendent dining experiences, they think of Las Vegas. At least that’s according to online booking site OpenTable, which reported the city had 12 spots on its list of America’s Top 100 Restaurants for a Big Night – a decent proportion.
California was credited with the most, with 18, but that’s for an entire state, including restaurants in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco. For just one city, OpenTable said Las Vegas was second behind Chicago, with 14.
But in the “multiple locations” category, OpenTable missed a few: Catch (Aria), Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse (3925 Paradise Road) and Gallagher’s Steakhouse (New York-New York). So that gives us 15. Take this, Chicago.
The others are Beauty & Essex (The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas), Eiffel Tower Restaurant (Paris Las Vegas), Giada (The Cromwell), Hell’s Kitchen (Caesars Palace), Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab (The Forum Shops at Caesars ), Mesa Grill (Caesars Palace), Momofuku (The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas), Mon Ami Gabi (Paris Las Vegas), STK (The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas), Tao (The Venetian), Texas de Brazil (Town Square) and Yardbird Southern Table & Bar (The Venetian).
To arrive at the list, the online reservation site would have sorted 12 million verified reviews of more than 30,000 American restaurants.
