Get ready for more of the 500,000-square-foot entertainment district The Linq to open at the end of February and into March. Now F.A.M.E. — Food.Art.Music.Entertainment. says it will open this March bringing with it an Asian market serving authentic street fare on the main floor and a contemporary Japanese restaurant on the upper level.
First up, the Asian market with its culinary bazaar of street foods from Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, China and Malaysia. Look for dim sum, stir-fry, ramen, barbecue, crepes and more. Ping Kwan Lam, who specializes in Chinese-style tapas, will be the featured chef on the main floor. Most recently at Ding Tai Fung, a famous dumpling restaurant in Taiwan, Lam's experience also includes Hong Kong restaurants Jade Garden, Luk Yi Tea House and Yung Kee.
A stationary "food truck" will offer fusion fare (note it looks strikingly similar to the Fukuburger truck) and microbrews from Asian countries in bottles and on tap. Expect to be entertained by live Asian-inspired entertainment including tiger and dragon dances, Taiko drum performances and Gangnam-style beats. A retail area will offer novelty items inspired by Asian culture, such as miniature drums and other souvenirs.
Upstairs find a Japanese restaurant complete with a deejay booth in the dining room and two patios, including one with lounge-style seating next to a bar. Various styles of Japanese cuisine will be on the menu and guests may choose to dine at a table or at the Tokyo-style robata bar, sushi bar or tempura bar. Chef Hideki Fuwa, whose previous experience includes Onya in New York City and Ippudo and East Restaurant Group, both in Japan, will lead the upstairs dining team. The cocktail menu will feature an array of Asian-inspired cocktails made with sake and other traditional spirits.
The 12,000-square-foot venue with room for 200 inside the Asian market, 50 more on the patio, another 150 upstairs in the Japanese restaurant and 50 more in the rooftop dining area will have views of the 550-foot-tall High Roller, the largest observation wheel in the world. Expect the Asian market to open daily at 11 a.m. while the upstairs restaurant will serve dinner nightly.
