Mizumi, the new Japanese restaurant at Wynn Las Vegas that takes the place of Okada, officially plans to open May 4. Eater Vegas took a sneak peek at the restaurant that is still undergoing renovations. Japanese art adorns the wall behind the bar and the restaurant is bathed in reds and gilded edges with distinctly feminine touches. Mizumi is a common woman's name in Japan.
Executive chef Devin Hashimoto, who helmed Okada and moved over to Wazuzu at Encore Las Vegas during the renovations, has already dished out some of the items he plans to serve, including traditional Japanese cuisine such as dobin-mushi soup with sea bass, shrimp, shimeji mushrooms, yuzu, mitsuba and bonito-kombu dashi, as well as okonomiyaki, a traditional Japanese pancake made with shrimp, scallops, cabbage, tonkatsu sauce, creamy mustard, aonori and katsuo.
Hashimoto also pays tribute to his Japanese heritage with a 72-hour braised American Wagyu short rib “kakuni” with creamy satsuma potatoes, fava bean and shitaake ragout and red wine miso sauce, as well as a seafood Inaniwa pasta with scallops, Alaskan king crab, octopus, roasted tomatoes, shiso, lime and an uni butter sauce.
