Andiron Steak & Sea just launched a stellar new sushi menu, and one of the chefs behind its creation is doing a guest turn at sister restaurant Honey Salt on June 30. Roy Villacrusis will lead a special four-course menu of Japanese-inspired cuisine that night for $49. Reservations can be made online at honeysalt.com.
Perhaps one of the most overlooked and best sushi houses on the Strip, Shibuya at MGM Grand will shutter on July 2 at 11 p.m. in order for a fall renovation into Morimoto Las Vegas from celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto. Morimoto was originally planned to take the place of Japonais at Mirage until MGM Resorts relocated its newest celeb chef concept.
Speaking of overlooked Asian eats on the Strip, Dragon Noodle Co. & Sushi Bar at Monte Carlo is celebrating its 20th anniversary. A special $20 three-course anniversary menu is available through July 31, and a portion of the proceeds from every Hong Kong chow mein dish sold until that date will benefit the Nevada Partnership for Homeless youth.
The Hard Rock Hotel’s 35 Steaks & Martinis will close later this year to make way for a new steakhouse concept from brothers Michael and David Morton. The Mortons’ father, Arnie, famously founded Morton’s The Steakhouse in 1978, one of the definitive brands of American restaurants. Michael Morton originally opened N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms in 2001 and currently operates La Cave at Wynn, Crush at MGM Grand and Downtown’s La Comida, while David Morton owns multiple restaurants in Chicago. Their older brother Peter Morton founded the Hard Rock Cafe chain and opened the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas in 1995. The new steakhouse is set to open in early 2017.
