After opening the original Jaleo in Washington, D.C., in 1993, chef José Andrés expanded to the suburbs of the city before turning his attention from Spanish cuisine to other cuisines like Mediterranean and Mexican. Now he has opened Jaleo in Sin City. As Spain's unofficial culinary ambassador, for both traditional cooking and Ferran Adrià’s brand of avant-garde, Andrés keeps the Jaleo menu packed with traditional tapas and paellas, using the finest ingredients and time-honored techniques with measured modern flourishes.

Amazing food and the sangria was great. I def would get the pitcher. We went there for my birthday and split 3 per person. Loved the potato gratas.

Dinner tonight was great. Manchego cheese on tomato toast was great. Also loved the calamari, garlic shrimp and flan!

Jaleo hour is a bargain! Only had 2 tapas plates & 1 dessert & came out pleasantly full. The dessert was amazing- caramalised bread,brioche ice cream and chocolate flan, perfect combo of salty&sweet!

The bacon wraps are not the best as Josh G previously indicated.

The "salt air" on Jose's Margarita is interesting... was not for me.

Want to take more of a break? Jaleo is an outstanding sit-down restaurant for Spanish food and tapas.

Jaleo stands out for such simplicity as garlicky sauted shrimp. - June issue 2012
