With upcoming reservations at Alex, Bartolotta and Joel Robuchon, we decided to dine on the lighter side our first night in Sin City. Since we were staying at the MGM Grand, Shibuya for sushi was the logical choice.
Shibuya claims to have the most extensive sake selection this side of the Pacific. Bottles of sake are displayed in their “great wall of sake,” and sell for as much as $1,300.
Sitting at the sushi bar, we were able to watch the seven sushi chefs at work. The moving tentacles on the beheaded shrimp were a testament to the freshness of the fish this restaurant serves. The presentation of each platter was spectacular, with each item artistically placed and adorned with edible flowers.
While Shibuya is a worthy destination on its own, it is a particularly compelling option when seeking a respite from some of the City's more elaborate and heavy meals. Fresh fish, artful presentation, an extensive sake selection, and hip atmosphere make Shibuya an excellent choice when in Vegas.
