Tartar of Ahi Tuna at Michael Mina

The chef/owner of one of the most luxurious restaurants on the Strip creates a sophisticated and brilliant presentation of his cuisine. This dish is one of Mina’s classics: rare ahi tuna topped with quail egg yolk, drizzled with chili-infused sesame oil and displayed with toasted pine nuts, garlic and chiffonade of mint. All of these ingredients come together for a truly appetizing treat. $22, in Bellagio, 693-7223.
