I have some good news for Vegas diners looking for something a little different. Yusho at Monte Carlo is now open according to eater. This is an outpost of the Chicago restaurant, which I love. The restaurant is features funky japanese style grilled street food and noodles by Matthias Merges, the former executive chef at the famed Charlie Trotter's fine dining restaurant. More good news - Merges is bringing in his Chicago sous chef to Vegas so I expect the real deal. You can checkout the menu here. I notice they leave off more challenging menu choices on the Chicago menu like beef tongue and replaced it with steak, but most dishes like the "poser ramen" and "2x friend chicken" are still there. Another great aspect to Yusho is they feature an excellent beverage program. I particularly enjoy their cocktail program. They even feature cocktails on draft! I haven't been to the Vegas location yet, but if you're looking for something fun and a little different I highly recommend Yusho.
