Haute Restaurant Madness has begun, and the results of the first round are in. The luxury restaurant voting contest started at midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 18, and fine dining lovers are in the midst of a fierce competition. Haute Restaurant Madness lets readers vote for their favorite restaurants in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas — pitting the each city’s most beautiful and tasteful restaurants against each other in the ultimate luxury competition. Only one fine dining establishment in each city will survive as the Haute Restaurant Madness Champion of 2013.
Here are some of the leaders in each city:
New York — Le Bernardin, Cipriani, Le Cirque, Il Mulino, Lavo, Del Posto
Los Angeles —Boa, Spago, Mr. Chow, Soho House, MB Post, Melisse
Miami — Cecconis, Carpaccio, Baoli, Nobu, Prime 112, Alba on the Ocean
San Francisco — Hakkasan, Bouchon, Morimoto, Michael Mina, Madera
Las Vegas — Nobu, MOzen Bistro, CUT, Yellowtail, Milos, Twist Sage
Every week, two of these incredible restaurants will go head-to-head in the Haute Restaurant Madness competition, with our discerning readers voting to determine which of the remaining eateries per city move on to the next round, until reaching the final two to complete for Haute Restaurant Madness Championship.
Haute Restaurant Madness follows in the footsteps of the hugely successful Haute Time Madness, Haute Hotel Madness, and Haute Auto Madness, when readers had the chance to choose their favorites in those categories.
