Part nightclub, part Asian restaurant, Tao packs crowds in nightly with its alluringly sexy Buddha-filled décor, a koi pond and weathered wood, a harmonious combination of ancient culture and contemporary life. You’ll find a pan-Asian menu with elements of Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisine figuring prominently. Sushi is a good choice, and the menu is heavy on trendy maki creations. Entrées are boldly flavored but still familiar, including the wasabi-crusted filet mignon. If you want to linger after your meal, head upstairs to the nightclub — it’s one of the hottest Vegas spots for bass-thumping music and celebrity sightings.
