These Are the Restaurant Openings We Are Most Excited for in 2024

José Andrés is opening two new restaurants this year, an artsy steakhouse hits a historic neighborhood, and H-Mart nears its Las Vegas debut

It’s time again for the Year in Eater where we look back at the last twelve months of Las Vegas’s restaurant scene. We reached out to Vegas’s finest food writers, reporters, and bloggers to get their takes on local trends, recent standouts, and notable newcomers. Here, they weigh the restaurant debuts they are most excited for in 2024

I’m a big fan of Rebar and everything Derek Stonebarger does so I’m super psyched about Arty’s Steakhouse opening in Commercial Center. An affordable steakhouse, art gallery, and bar combo, I’m all in on this one.

As an LA native, I’m excited for Norm’s Diner to open its first location outside of California in Las Vegas. And Emmitt’s is now going on year three since it was first announced. The steakhouse from Dallas Cowboys running back and Pro Football Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith hasn’t had much movement in that time — with the exception of a $67 million lawsuit filed back in August. Will it ever actually open? I’m dying to find out.

José Andrés’ two new restaurant openings in Las Vegas.

The team at Partage is opening a new caviar/Champagne/dessert concept just a couple of doors down and I can’t wait to see what they do!

I’m looking forward to Caspian’s Caviar and Cocktail bar at Caesars (where Cleopatra’s Barge used to be) and everything at Fontainebleau.

Not quite restaurant-related, but H-Mart is opening in 2024!

Like everyone else, I’m excited to explore the restaurant collections of Fontainebleau and the new Durango resort, which I’m sure will take several months. But I’m probably most excited to have two new Jose Andres’s restaurants coming in 2024 — the Mediterranean restaurant Zaytinya, and his mystery project in Crystals.

I’m excited to see the new version of Esther’s Kitchen in the Arts District. I know James Trees wants to keep what made the original so special in the first place while having a larger kitchen and dining room to expand his operation. From there, I can’t wait to see what Trees does with the original Esther’s space (which will be transformed into a new tasting-menu concept) and La Boheme, a French bistro in the Arts District.
