Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, globally renowned for his Japanese and Peruvian fusion cuisine, has several restaurants and hotels bearing his name around the world. Caesars Palace is the only U.S.-based Nobu to feature teppanyaki tables. Fresh seafood options include lobster ceviche, octopus or crab sunomono (Japanese cucumber salad), and a vast array of sushi and sashimi options. Try opulent oceanic fare like melt-in-your-mouth sea urchin or Bluefin Toro (tuna belly).
Aria Resort and Casino's Catch attracts seafood lovers from both coasts. Try their most luxurious signature dish: truffle sashimi with tuna, hamachi, chili oil, ponzu, caviar, and black truffles. Those that come hungry should order the 2.5-pound Cantonese lobster made with sake, oyster sauce, scallions, and garlic.
Boathouse Asian Eatery is a casual dining option inside the Palace Station Casino. The creative dishes will satisfy every palate without breaking the bank. Try the Instagram-worthy spicy crab and tuna tacos that come topped with avocado and spicy Thai aioli in a fried wonton shell. "The Golden Eye," the Boathouse's dressed up version of oysters on the half shell, features sea urchin, salmon roe, 2 kinds of tobiko, and yuzu ponzu. It's almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
Get down and dirty with your seafood feast at Hot N Juicy Crawfish located in the Planet Hollywood Hotel. Order peel-and-eat crawfish, shrimp, mussels, and crab by the pound or keep your hands a little cleaner with a po'boy sandwich. Round out the finger-licking Cajun spread with a bowl of etouffee.
Chef Mark LoRusso brings authentic coastal Italian cuisine to Las Vegas at The Wynn Hotel. The a la carte menu is bursting with mouth-watering seafood options, but the Gran Tasting Menu may be the best way to sample a little of everything. Start with sea scallops over soft polenta in a caviar sauce before moving on to handmade ink pasta with cuttlefish, shrimp, and lobster. The main event is a whole roasted Meditteranean fish. Wine pairings are available.
