Kaiseki Sanga really impressed me. Basically, it’s as if there’s Aiko between Kame and Yuzu Kaiseki, creating a very exciting new menu each month, and their $250 modern Kaiseki-style dinners are easily his $400 will do.

I have been patiently waiting for Vetri to reopen at The Palms. The scenery and food were even better than I remembered. I love seeing pop-ups evolve into full brick-and-mortar stores. And it’s exciting to see Yukon Pizza get a permanent home. But Anima by EDO is my most frequent new restaurant this year. Our ever-changing tasting menu makes every visit fresh, enjoyable and memorable.

This year was filled with highly anticipated openings, but the ones I was most excited about were EDO, Wakuda, Dominique Ansel and Lotus of Siam’s Anima. EDO is still one of my favorite restaurants he and Anima is a great sequel. Wakuda impresses with its dynamic atmosphere from the moment you walk in the door, and the food is equally impressive. Also, I’ve been a fan of cronut for years, so Dominique Ansel’s opening on the Strip was a sweet dream come true! The opening of our newest location felt like the beginning of a new era of growth for the brand.

138°. I really like how he revisited his concept and broadened his approach to dry aging.

We had a lot of great openings this year. But personally, nothing was more exciting than having Vetri Cucina back at the top of his The Palms. At a time when different interpretations of Italian cuisine seem to be having their “moment” in Las Vegas, no one is doing what Chef Vetri does at the top of the fine dining game. Rustic yet classy, full of surprises yet incredibly comforting. Add in a gorgeous dining room and breathtaking views and you have a Las Vegas experience like no other.
