Every dish, YUM! Don't miss it. The care and detail put into everything from the food to ambience to service is impeccable. Reminds me why Vegas has such a reputation for dining.

On my trip here, we enjoyed an awesome tasting menu full of Spanish dishes I'd never tried before. One of the more amusing things included one of the tapas being served in a (clean) sport shoe. I'm not exactly why that was, but whatever! One of the highlights is the showing of the paella, though. There's lots of banging and fanfare from the kitchen, and the waitstaff carries around an oversized skillet full of the entree, showing it to guests before its served.

Inside the Strip's chic Cosmopolitan casino resort, this modern tapas bar & restaurant by chef Jose Andres is fun, flirty and not at all stuffy. But don't let that fool you, because the menu is intensely foodie (in a good way!) and the wine list of Spanish imports is eye-opening. Expect to spend a good chunk of change on dinner (at least $100/person), but for a splashy night out, it's worth it. The Iberico jam and garlic-egg soup are knock-outs.

Spanish tapas by Jose Andres in the Cosmopolitan Hotel. There is some ridiculous dessert called the Rum Crema that is coffee plus an entire bottle of rum that has been set on fire and reduced for 30 minutes to a rum syrup. I didn't personally try it, but was told it was very sweet and generally people liked it.
They have an open kitchen where you can see the chefs making big pots of paella. Every time they finish a paella, they cheer and ring a bell (or maybe they're just hitting the pots and pans with their utensils). Apparently their wine list is also amazing.

i was spoiled going to the DC location long time ago and this location unfortunately doesn't compare in quality and portion as the DC location. It's still good but i failed to impress my friends with this location. darn it.

Located in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. this tapas place is not as good as its east coast counterpart in Washington DC. That being said this place is still pretty great. The menu is in constant flux, and I mean that as a good thing, there always is something new, and sadly something great is no longer there. So the method is if you see something interesting on the menu order it, for it may be gone tomorrow. But fear not it will most certainly be replaced with something equally interesting, so make sure you come back and try that before it too is gone, such is the circle of life, or in this case the circle of tapas. Live it up you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!

I was very excited to dine at E by Jose Andres, a small restaurant hidden within Jaleo. A few of my friends ate there a couple weeks prior and they really enjoyed their experience. I was anticipating this meal weeks prior. In order to get reservations you need to send an email (email@example.com) up to 1 month in advance. They only serve 8 people per seating and have only 2 seatings per night (5:30pm and 8:30pm). About a week prior you should receive your golden tickets for entry to the "show". Trust me ,it won't disappoint!
The staff is extremely friendly and well trained. On arrival we were quickly greeted at the entry of Jaleo restaurant. The host, Stephanie, explained the drink options, and left us while we went through the wine menu ( on an iPad). Once our drinks were ordered, she escorted us to a private room where a semi circle table of 8 seats is located. During the meal you enjoy watching the Chefs plate your meal! This is quite an experience, especially because they use many Molecular Gastronomic techniques. The chefs are very precise and meticulous with every dish. In additional to the chef there are 2 additional servers who take care of removing plates after every dish, refilling water, and switching out wine glasses. Service is excellent! Everyone is very attentive and knowledgeable about the cooking methods and wine pairings. There were so many tidbits that I cannot possibly remember everything they told me.
While dining I definitely suggest you try on of the paring options. They have a non-alcoholic pairing ($55) and a traditional wine pairing ($110). Both are very interesting. My mom get the non-alcoholic parings and they very cool. Many of the drinks try to mimic actual alcoholic drinks! I personally ordered the regular wine pairings and though it was a amazing. My favorite was drinking out of a porron, which was definitely a unique experience. Even if you choose not to do the wine pairings, don't worry a couple drinks are included in the meal. In fact, everyone got two gin and tonic drinks which were prepared very differently.
The food was amazing. Overall there were 20+ dishes. I'd have to say everything was very good. A few of my favorites were the lobster, the iberico ham and the mushrooms in cream sauce. While the food tasted very good, a HUGE part of the experience is enjoying the plating and unique cooking methods. The chefs are very talented and are familiar with cooking methods which are not traditionally taught at culinary school. One of the chefs, Mia, even said that she has learned cooking methods at E which were not taught at the Culinary Institue of America. One of my favorite methods was Spherification, in which the use a calcium and an alginate bath to form spheres from liquids. These liquid spheres resemble caviar, but are filled with a flavorful burst when eaten. It is techniques like this that make this a truly memorable experience.
E is one of my top dining experiences. I'd say overall I enjoyed the food at French Laundry more, but the show at E is like no other. Alinea uses some similar cooking techniques, however at E you get to enjoy watching the chefs preform the art of plating!
