One of the toughest tables in Las Vegas gets a bit easier to access. The exclusive é by José Andrés inside the chef’s Jaleo at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas brings a sixth night of service starting on Tuesday, Sept. 20. Now the restaurant is only closed on Monday nights.
The chef’s table can seat eight people for a 20-plus course dinner. Chefs roll out course after course, many cooked right at the table and meticulously plated with tweezers, dry ice embellishments and novelty dishware, including plaster replicas of Andrés’ hands. Frequently, guests can plan to dine on Cava Sangria, an edible sphere cocktail filled with white sangria made from Cava, gin and fruit as well as the empanada, an empanada made with a pillowy cotton candy shell, filled with foie gras and corn nuts.
Make sure to plan in advance if you want to dine at this exclusive chef’s table. Guests must email reservations to management at the minimum of 90 days in advance. Seatings last for two hours, with one at 5:30 and another at 8:30 p.m. in a room with a dramatic red glass wall and red velvet curtain, a nod to the chef’s concept of cooking as performance.
The dinner costs $250 per person not inclusive of beverage, tax or gratuity. Wine pairing options start at $130, but guests can also choose a $300 or $500 option as well. The full Jaleo wine list, as well as full bar, are also available. Reservations.
