Chef Masa Takayama is in the house for the opening of his new restaurant-within-a-restaurant Tetsu. The teppan grill, which takes over the former Shaboo space inside BarMasa, opens Wednesday at Aria.
“Tetsu translates to ‘iron’ in Japanese, which is why we refer to the Iron Chef in Japan as ‘Tetsu,’” Takayama says. “It is the idea that the chef cannot be beat.”
Eater Vegas caught Takayama giving some pointers to his chefs on Monday afternoon.
