ZAI

Las Vegas
Theme Restaurant

Featured In

Chef Noé Alcalá developed the first incarnation of Zai in Mexico City and now brings the concept to Las Vegas with a prime Fremont East location across the street from the Downtown Container Park. The restaurant puts a fun spin on casual comfort food with a heavy emphasis on Latin and Asian flavors with subtle European touches. The edamame is topped with bleu cheese and Buffalo sauce, the house burger is smothered in caper pesto, and the Banh Mi sliders pack pork belly and slaw between steamed buns blackened with activated charcoal. A thick and hearty risotto is the perfect bed for a fresh catch of seafood, while the Sushi Bunker is similar to a Dragon Roll, fanned out in a circle with carrots and crispy onion strings. The fries are made from mashed potatoes formed into thin sticks and taste especially delicious when dipped in watermelon tamarind sauce. The format allows you to easily build a meal large or small in a comfortable environment with a lively open kitchen, prominent cocktail bar, and roll-up garage door facing Fremont Street. Just remember to order Alcalá's take on honey toast for dessert, made with house-baked bread. An rooftop terrace operates as a nightclub after 8 pm.
