Chef Bryan Emperor will be heading the kitchen at the Linq’s soon-to-open Asian fusion restaurant F.A.M.E—Food.Art.Music.Entertainment—the restaurant’s management tells Vegas Seven. A former Wall Street banker, Emperor spent many years traveling and living in Asia. After attending the Culinary Institute of America with a focus on Japanese cuisine, he apprenticed in Tokyo before returning to New York to work in the kitchen of the original Nobu. He later spent time as a guest chef at the Michelin three-star Kikunoi Honten in Kyoto, Japan.
At F.A.M.E., the chef will blend the cuisines of Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, China and Malaysia. The restaurant will offer several dining options, including a faux food truck serving Asian street food, robata grill, sushi bar, tempura bar and outdoor patio. It also promises entertainment in the form of live DJs, dragon dancers and taiko drummers.
