There are a handful of good tapas restaurants in Las Vegas, but when one of them is by José Andrés, you know which one to pick.
JALEO is inside the COSMOPOLITAN HOTEL, with a lively and festive vibe to it. The service is good, though relaxed, which is perfect for a tapas restaurant where you want to leisurely dine. The food… well, the food is excellent. I’ve now been to Jaleo twice, and both times the food was authentic while being creative and gorgeous. Of course Chef
knows what he’s doing, and tapas are his expertise.
This time around, we were 3 ladies, and picked 5 dishes. It was the perfect amount of food for us and we left very satisfied. We even skipped dessert – blasphemy, I know.
