To stand out from the crowded field of Japanese restaurants in Vegas, Zuma had to show a little creativity beyond its eye-catching cocktails (like the fantastic Smoked History, a bourbon-citrus combo that’s smoked at the table). Fortunately, the restaurant offers fresh takes on classic Asian dishes in a stylish, upscale environment with clear sightlines of an open kitchen, sushi counter, and robata grill. Wagyu, used frequently to balance the seafood, is especially good when gently topped with an Asian chimichurri sauce. The off-menu Golden Toro Maki is a tribute to the Vegas Golden Knights with caviar and golden flakes atop fatty tuna.
