José Andrés’ New Las Vegas Restaurant to Open in September

‘Bazaar Meat’ will be located in the new SLS Las Vegas

José Andrés won the James Beard Award for Most Outstanding Chef in 2011.

When the new SLS Las Vegas Hotel and Casino opens this September, it will boast some serious culinary credentials. Earlier this week, SLS Hotels updated their website to formally introduce Bazaar Meat, Spanish-American culinary master José Andrés’ new restaurant. The announcement calls the James Beard Award-winner’s project a “wild and wonderful celebration of the carnivorous, in all its forms.”

Andrés had previously discussed his plan for Bazaar Meat in a November Los Angeles Times article, calling his vision for the restaurant “meat-centric,” with a variety of steak, lamb, and pork dishes. Like his other SLS Bazaar restaurants, located in Miami and Los Angeles, Bazaar Meat will feature tapas and an open room that emphasizes a social dining experience.

Bazaar Meat will also feature inventive cocktails and an interior by renowned French designer Philippe Stark. SLS Las Vegas’ restaurant lineup is already slated to include Katsuya by Stark, by master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi, and Cleo, by Mediterranean chef Danny Elmaleh.
