It’s true that most of the hottest new restaurants in Vegas are sit-down spots that require serious deliberation on what to wear. So for the times when you just don’t feel like getting dressed up but still want to dine like royalty, this takeout-only sushi spot puts out high-quality fish that you can eat on the hood of your rental car.
The chef and co-owner was one of the first women sushi chefs on the Strip, but she recently left Wynn’s Japanese restaurant Mizumi to debut this off-the-Strip outpost that makes you feel like you have your own personal sushi chef on call.
The fish is sourced mostly from Japan, and your go-to order should be The Treasure Box: a colorful assortment of melt-in-your-mouth toro, Hokkaido uni, hamachi, and briny ikura on top of sushi rice. It costs $80 but can feed two people and will make going back to grocery store sushi extremely hard—especially if you order the freshly grated Japanese wasabi root.
