AquaKnox not only serves the freshest seafood, but the menu at the Las Vegas restaurant also includes a number of vegetable sides and meat dishes. The menu is split into seven categories: appetizers, caviar, salads, “water mains,” “land mains,” shellfish bar options and sides. Appetizers include Maine lobster bisque and littleneck clam steamers, while the caviar section offers Naccarii sturgeon and Karat Golden Osetra caviars (be prepared to shell out more than $145 for the Naccarii and $245 for the Osetra. You’ll have four salad options to choose from, including a sweet shrimp and lump crab accompanied by cantaloupe and avocado dressed with sesame-citrus vinaigrette or the butter lettuce and herbs dressed with champagne vinaigrette.
The centerpiece of the menu, the water entrées, include the signature John Dory fish, wild Barramundi, seared Maine scallops and fish soup. Each dish incorporates the freshest seafood, flown in daily from around the globe. On the land entrée side, you’ll have your choice of organic roasted Jidori chicken, prime rib, filet mignon or New York strip steak. While the land options are few, they are crowd-pleasers.
If you go to AquaKnox for lunch, you can also try out the shellfish bar, which includes prawns, oysters, crab claws and lobster. And if you want a tour of everything, opt for the seafood platter for two, which includes oysters on the half shell, prawns, Main lobster, royal red ceviche, mussels, Jonah crab and sake-ponzu oyster shooters — it’s more options than you’ll likely find at your local fish market, all in one dish.
Last, but certainly not least, are the desserts. Choose from a flourless chocolate cake or vanilla crème brûlée.
