The Light Group, Las Vegas’ premier hospitality and lifestyle development organization, raises its culinary portfolio once again with the addition of Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant & Bar. Opened July 18 at Bellagio Resort & Casino, just steps away from The Light Group’s Caramel Bar & Lounge, FIX Restaurant & Bar and sophisticated nightclub The Bank, Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant & Bar will offer an extensive Japanese menu of fresh, ingredient-driven cuisine for both the sushi novice and connoisseur in a sumptuous and highly stylized surrounding.
Overlooking Bellagio’s iconic lake in which fountains perform a magnificent aquatic ballet choreographed to music and lights, Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant & Bar’s stunning and sleek ambiance sets the stage for award-winning chef Akira Back’s menu of authentic, traditional and modern Japanese cuisine. Seasonal fish and ingredients flown in daily from the finest markets and purveyors around the world are showcased in sushi, sashimi, tempura and hand rolls. A multi-course Omakase menu, which translates to “entrust,” will afford the opportunity to sample Back’s best culinary creations composed of small dishes. Combining world-class cuisine and an inventive chic dining experience, Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant & Bar is Las Vegas’ go-to Japanese dining hot spot.
Designed by the world-renowned Rockwell Group of New York City, Yellowtail Sushi Restaurant & Bar’s elegant wood and stone decor fosters a vibrant atmosphere and its intimate size exudes exclusivity. The restaurant’s signature design element, a 25-by-13-foot, wall-mounted installation at the entrance, was created using bronze metal scales that resemble the dorsal side of the eponymous fish. The dining room offers a cozy setting with screens composed of woven twigs set inside antique brass frames. Diners seeking the quintessential Las Vegas experience can enjoy the excitement of The Strip from a patio overlooking Bellagio’s famed fountain show. Read the full story
