Bazaar Meat, the steakhouse from chef José Andrés, waits until June 5 to reopen at the Sahara Las Vegas. The casino and resort reopens its casino floor and hotel on Thursday, June 4, at 10 a.m., along with its rooftop pools along with dining outlets including Northside Café, Casbar Lounge, and Starbucks.
Bazaar Meat, a member of the Eater 38, features a raw bar with ceviches and carpaccios and a fire stage with wood grills and rotisseries. This is one of a handful of restaurants in Las Vegas that serves real Kobe beef. Favorite dishes include the cotton candy foie gras, caviar flights, and Kobe, which can be grilled on an ishyaki stone at the table or served in a miniature airbread “sandwich” on the specials menu.
The resort already released new health and safety protocols that include eliminating reusable menus, and using single-use items and touchless payment systems. All restaurants and bars will have limited seating for appropriate social distancing between diners, and once customers leave, their chair and table will be disinfected and sanitized before the next diner arrives.
The resort also plans to use BioProtect, an anti-microbial protectant that claims to prevent contamination on surfaces for about 90 days to door handles, gaming chips, elevator buttons, and slot machine panels.
Right now, Nevada is in phase one of reopening, with dine-in restaurants, including some within casinos, permitted to reopen with restrictions. On Friday, bars and indoor shopping centers, among other businesses, can reopen with restrictions, and casinos can reopen on June 4.
