PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?Yes
Avant-garde. The enormous bright-white space is centered on a striking jet-black 30-seat table lined with chairs whose insane backs brush the ceiling. Food presentation is equally artsy, with accents like a live goldfish swimming in a wine glass complementing courses. Though the dining concept is meant to be communal, the ultra-elite vibes keep crowds at bay, so expect a private, intimate meal.
Trendsetters and schmoozing execs.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Technically, it’s casual…but casual in a hyper-fashionable, “you need to look fantastic, but like you’re not even trying” way. Try hip-label skinny jeans, awesome heels, funky jewelry, and an eye-catching top.

WHY WE LIKE IT
The ambiance and design are stunning–perfect if you seek to impress your dining companions. Also, they’ve really hit their stride with the fusion menu recently, so you may find the bites even more impressive than the surrounds.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The service can be pretentious. No matter how stylish the venue, we shouldn’t feel bad asking for assistance.
GOOD TO KNOW
It’s a little tricky to find–look for their discreet door next to Bellagio and then ring the bell to get in. Once you’re through the door, there’s absolutely no photo taking allowed (they’re very strict on this point). On the other hand, international credit cards are gladly accepted. They occasionally have live music or performances–check their website or call ahead for info about what’s on.
