This restaurant is first among many distinctive designs at Aria. It’s a collaboration between famed architect Richard Bloch and chef Masa Takayama, who contributed a series of sketches from which Bloch worked. A barn of cavernous proportions decorated in high style with 15-foot doors of teak and copper, curved red leather banquettes and arched ceilings, it’s more than three times the size of the New York outpost at the Time Warner Center. Other restaurants at Aria have soaring designs as well. Sage has a wonderful deco dining room offset by a romantic mural; the Thai restaurant Lemongrass gives the effect of a large bamboo cage. But Bar Masa wins for being the most severely minimalist in this contemporary hotel, which is unusual in our city of excess.
