Despite being in the middle of a desert, Vegas still gets its fare share of great sushi. Head over to Bar Masa at Aria for Masa Takayama’s take on fresh seafood. No fish has been out of the Japanese waters for more than 24 hours. Next door, he has Tetsu, a teppanaki joint.
Nobu Matsuhisa opened his second Nobu Restaurant & Lounge in his eponymous Nobu Hotel inside Caesars Palace. The 11,200-square-foot restaurant features teppanyaki tables, a sushi bar and private dining area. Be sure to try his miso-glazed black cod and tempura rock shrimp in addition to sushi.
Off Strip, head to the tiny Kabuto in Chinatown, an 18-seat restaurant that features nigiri and omakase options. The edomae-style sushi here is imported from Japan daily, so the menu here tends to change based on what’s in season.
