Angelo Sosa, the chef who appeared on Top Chef season 7 and Top Chef All Stars, just opened Poppy Den, a 5,400-square-foot restaurant with a rustic ambiance in Tivoli Village. The Asian gastropub, Sosa's first in Vegas, serves up what it calls "tastefully crafted food and beverage with Asian flavor accents."

The bi-level restaurant features gastronomy, which emphasizes "discovering, tasting, experiencing, researching and understanding food" in a group atmosphere.

On the menu, find the Poppy Burger, inspired by Sosa's award-winning Bibimbap Burger, voted "Greatest Burger in America" by Eater.com; a fish sandwich with onion jam and dill; miso salmon with shisito peppers; Amma's Homemade tomato soup; watermelon salad with goat cheese; and "Simply the Best" potato chips and ice cream. Many dishes are created using sustainable and locally sourced products. The most expensive item on the menu comes in at $24 for steak and potatoes.

Already a hit with diners: The jarred tuna and roasted duck breast with poppy honey.

Here's a look at the entire menu.
