AAA Travel has added two Las Vegas restaurants to its elite Four Diamond list, the travel club announced today.
The additions include CUT by Wolfgang Puck at the Palazzo and the Daniel Boulud Brasserie at Wynn Las Vegas. The two restaurants bring Nevada’s AAA Four Diamond restaurant total to 31, ranking the state sixth among North America’s states and provinces.
All hotel recipients of the Four Diamond Award are repeat winners, including the Mirage, which has won for the 20th time, the longest current streak, according to AAA. There are now 16 Four Diamond Award-winning properties in Nevada. Other Strip winners include Caesars Palace, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Treasure Island, Monte Carlo, Paris Las Vegas and THEhotel.
“To achieve this accomplishment, hotels are upscale in all areas and offer guests a wide range of amenities while restaurants must feature a distinctive fine dining experience, outstanding service and creative and complex menus,” AAA Nevada spokesman Michael Geeser said.
The travel club announced winners of its top honor, the Five Diamond Award, in November. The latest additions included The Ritz-Carlton at Lake Las Vegas, Encore Las Vegas and the Palazzo in the hotel category. Nationally, no restaurants were added to AAA’s Five Diamond list.
