Hachi already was one of the best restaurants in Summerlin and one of the coolest spots at the Red Rock Resort before the recent, ambitious upgrade to its menu of modern Japanese cuisine. If you haven’t been here in a while, it’s time to revisit and re-explore what might be one of Las Vegas’ most underrated restaurants.

Hachi Red Rock Resort, 797-7576. Sunday-Thursday, 5-10 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 5-11 p.m.

      Tuna sashimi flatbread

      Hachi’s new signature starter layers luscious tuna aboard crisp, light flatbread foundations with serrano pepper, red onion, creamy aioli and dabs of tobiko. It’s everything you want in every bite. ($12)

      Miso cod lettuce wraps

      Everybody does miso cod (à la Nobu) and everybody does lettuce wraps, so Hachi does them together. There’s a bit of salsa to marry the pleasant vegetable crunch and the decadent fish. ($14)

      Hearts of palm salad

      Does this sound boring? It’s actually fresh and bright, bolstered by jalapeño and a passion fruit vinaigrette, not to mention the slight licorice notes from crisp fennel. ($12)

      Scallop tiradito

      This “new-style cold plate” is a serene garden of refreshing contrasts, razor-thin slices of sweet raw scallop decorated with yuzu and truffle oil and topped with white grapes and rocoto chili. ($14)

      Wagyu ishiyaki hot rock

      The game-changer—certified Kagoshima Kuroge Wagyu beef, as good as it gets—is now available in Summerlin, and the best method is to flash-sear it yourself, give it a quick dip in sesame oil and one of four sauces, and smack it in your face. ($18 per ounce.)
