A secret dining room tucked into the back of The Cosmopolitan in Sin City that serves more than 20 courses and seats just eight diners has been named the best hotel restaurant in the world.
It’s called é, and like the brevity of its name, the restaurant itself has been widely described as a beacon of discretion in a city of flashy lights. Set within chef José Andrés’ restaurant Jaleo, a visit to the exclusive eatery requires an escort away from the main restaurant, down a long corridor and into a hidden dining space and reservations must be made about three months in advance.
Its online presence is minimal, with the exception of a blurb buried within Jaleo’s restaurant description where it’s called a “secluded setting.”
For the list of top 100 hotel restaurants, establishments had to have a minimum of 15 rooms. Eateries come from more than 50 countries and represent 80 cities around the world.
Here are the Top 10 hotel restaurants according to The Daily Meal:
