Address: The Linq, 3545 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Status: Opens at 5 p.m.
The Asian night market at F.A.M.E. — which stands for Food, Art, Music and Entertainment — opens tonight at The Linq. This culinary bazaar taking over the first level of the space combines tastes from Singapore, Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong and Taipei.
Even a mock food truck decked out in the Fukuburger logo starts off the line of food stands, planning to serve up the Ronald McFuku burger. Next door, a cook-to-order stand. Then the Asian noodles, with ramen, udon and Thai soups. Keep heading left for the Asian barbecue stand with chicken, bao, duck and pork over rice. Next to that, the dim sum station, not on a cart, but laid out like one. Then comes two stir fry stands, one with Chinese dishes and the other serving up southeastern Asia cuisines. Another station carries desserts. At the bar, Asian beers and sake on tap.
Pop art touches such as a light with Wonder Woman give the look here an anime feel. Custom-made tables from distressed wood, old doors hanging overhead and glow stick lights hanging near the bar round out the look of the space.
Guests here will be entertained by the live cooking performances and fire from the stations.
Once F.A.M.E. settles in, expect it to be open from 11 a.m. to midnight weeknights and to 2 a.m. on weekends.
Bryan Emperor's anticipated Fōchun on the second floor opens at the end of June or early July. He plans to serve up a menu of authentic Japanese, Chinese and Korean dishes, using ingredients, beverages and equipment normally only found in Asia.
