When the neon lights illuminate the midnight sky of Las Vegas, the cooks at Monte's Pizza Restaurant are still hard at work. They dart about their kitchen, checking on saucepans of marinara and bubbling pots of angel hair pasta before showering dough in creamy ricotta cheese, fresh basil, and plump sausages and loading pies into fiery ovens. Others layer crusty rolls with meatballs, steak, and salami before turning their attention to juicy slabs of baby back ribs sizzling on grills. Throughout the week, this kitchen staff keeps late hours, making its restaurant a popular spot for late-night carousers or sleepwalkers dreaming of enchanted meatballs that will grant them eternal beauty.

In 1971, Jimmy Nishiyama introduced the city of Las Vegas to Japanese hibachi cuisine. Three decades later, Geisha House, Nishiyama's brainchild, has grown to fill three locations and eight menu pages. Colorful specialty sushi rolls, such as the baked japanese lasagna?cream cheese and mayo atop a crabmeat and avocado roll?make fitting partners for grilled lobster, filet mignon, or scallops in hibachi dinners. Nearly 30 varieties of sake trip merrily across the palate, while the Geisha martini blends sake with plum wine and a treasure trove of James Bond jokes.

A daily happy hour is even more focused on cocktails, with other Easternized offerings including sake bombs, ginger sake mojitos, and lychee and Sanyo strawberry martinis. As for food, groups can share both creative hot bites and traditional maki such as spicy tuna and california rolls.

The practiced chefs at Red Sushi assemble sushi, sashimi, and nigiri platters alongside savory Asian entrees in a crimson-lit, contemporary dining room. Diners can nab 1 of 11 specialty rolls betwixt nimble chopsticks or out-of-work Oreo halves, such as the Red Tiger roll, which caps shrimp tempura with spicy tuna and avocado ($16). The Dynamite roll bedecks a standard california roll with sizzling supplements of scallops and fiery dynamite sauce ($10). Soak tongues in sweet miso accompanied by black cod ($22), or joust with brussels sprouts to determine how to divvy up an Asian-style game hen ($19). Wine by the glass, as well as Japanese sake and beer selections, stifle thirst symptoms, whereas signature cocktails like the Red Zen Tini—a tart blend of vodka, pomegranate, and sweet-and-sour citrus ($9)—rouse taste buds.

Owner and chef Masa spent nearly two decades as a sushi chef?most of that time inside Hyakumi Japanese Restaurant, Nobu, and Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace?and while he could easily roll his own maki at home, he couldn't find a fast-food Japanese restaurant close to his house. So he opened his own eatery, Ninja Teriyaki & Sushi 2 Go, as explained in a Las Vegas Review-Journal feature. The restaurant's traditional and inventive sushi rolls?varying from salmon avocado to spicy tuna to shrimp tempura?complement rice bowls brimming with chicken and tofu slathered in teriyaki sauce. And as the restaurant?s name implies, can be taken ?2 Go? or enjoyed at the eatery, where the family dog can't negotiate his way into getting the last bite.
