This new restaurant makes phenomenal use of a space that formerly housed Shaboo in BarMasa. Creative Design Architecture of Las Vegas essentially converted the room to a teppan bar by means of four blackjack-style tables, two communal teppan grills and a produce table that serves as a centerpiece. There are soaring round aluminum table hoods, dark granite countertops and blond teak in abundance, while neutral carpet was installed so as not to compete with the room’s many fresh-food displays. Tetsu manages to evoke a Japanese aesthetic of harmony through nature, and it blends in beautifully with the larger main dining room, visible from almost every table here.
