Debuting tomorrow, chef Masa Takayama’s new restaurant-within-a-restaurant Tetsu opens its doors inside BarMasa at Aria. The tiny enclave, which takes over the former high-end Shaboo space, marks Takayama’s first attempt at a teppan grill, and he already has plans to open a second in New York City later this year.

Inside find six teppan grills manned by chefs surrounded by four blackjack-style tables and two communal teppan grill tables seating five and 10, respectively.

In the center, a produce table creates the centerpiece for the room and the spot where meats, seafoods and vegetables await selection for the next dish.

While the sushi, appetizers and ceviche dishes will remain the same, the teppan menu changes daily.

Takayama plans to be in the restaurant through Friday to help it get its legs.

Tetsu will be open Wednesdays through Sundays from 5 to 11 p.m.
