After opening on New Year's Day in 2011, é by José Andrés has continued to quietly be not only one of the very best restaurants in Las Vegas, but one of the most exclusive. Found in a private room off to the side of Jaleo at the Cosmopolitan, the intimate spot features just nine seats at a single countertop offering an up-close view of the culinary team in action. With only two seatings a night, at 5:30 and 8:30 p.m., it's highly recommended to book reservations well in advance. After doing so, guests receive an actual golden ticket for admission.
