Las Vegas weather may be hot and dry, but Las Vegas sushi
is the sumptuous cuisine of a coastal climate. For instance, at the Aria, Las Vegas feasts on nigiri and sashimi at barMASA. Some of it is made with bluefin tuna—fish so fresh, Chef Masa Takayama guarantees it was free in Japanese coastal waters at most 24 hours ago. (Why yes, that does mean much of the seafood is flown in. Doesn’t that make you feel like a king?) What’s more, he and his team plate sushi so artfully that it belongs in the pantheon of grand Las Vegas shows, right alongside Cirque du Soleil.
