Michelin Awards Restaurant Stars

 

For the first time Michelin has released a guide for Las Vegas that features 127 restaurants and 30 hotels.

Among restaurants, Las Vegas garnered one three-star restaurant, Joel Robuchon in the MGM Grand; three two-star restaurants, Guy Savoy in Caesars Palace, Alex at Wynn, Picasso in the Bellagio; and 12 one-star restaurants, including Alize at The Palms, Aureole at Mandalay Bay, Le Cirque at Bellagio and Nobu at the Hard Rock.

For context, Michelin describes a three-star restaurant as one with exceptional cuisine and worth the journey; a two-star restaurant as excellent cooking and worth a detour; and restaurants with one star as very good in its category.
