Las Vegas is home to eight of the 100 Best Restaurants for Wine Lovers in America according to OpenTable users. New York City is the most recognized on their list with 12 restaurants on the list. Las Vegas is second with eight restaurants on the list. The state of California is tied with Las Vegas for number two on this list.
Most of the great restaurants for wine drinkers are on the same street. Seven of the eight best restaurants for wine drinkers in Las Vegas are on Las Vegas Boulevard. Three of those restaurants are at the same casino! Technically, two of the restaurants are in downtown Las Vegas. However, the only restaurant not on Las Vegas Boulevard is Hugo’s Cellar which is located in downtown Las Vegas inside the Four Queens Hotel and Casino.
You may notice that we reference OpenTable lists pretty often. There’s a reason for that. The information is compiled from real people dining out all over the country. This provides a well-rounded list. The 100 Best Restaurants for Wine Lovers In America list was generated from more than 12 million verified OpenTable reviews for more than 28,000 restaurants in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. between August 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018.
