Meet the seven James Beard Foundation contenders in Las Vegas

March 3, 2015

Perhaps the biggest accolade goes to Bazaar Meat by José Andrés, nominated for Best New Restaurant. The steakhouse from Washington, D.C.-based Andrés opened at the SLS Las Vegas in August with a hunting-club setting replete with antelope horns for chandeliers and what the restaurant calls “the world’s longest dining table.” Open kitchens use wood grills and rotisseries for cooking up the meats here while a raw bar dishes out ceviches, carpaccios and tartares.
