Another Rave Review for Japanese Cuisine by Omae

"Omae is offering the most exciting Japanese dining experience in Las Vegas." So says Al Mancini about the new seven-course omakase at Japanese Cuisine by Omae.

For now, the menu from Takeshi Omae, who earned a Michelin star in Tokyo and works the two-man kitchen nightly, is priced at $100, but goes up to $200 in October. The tiny 12-seat restaurant hopes to have a liquor license soon as well.

Mancini recommends choosing the "120-gram tasting of wagyu beef, although customers can upgrade to Kobe for an additional $80," which is really the only decision diners have to make on the menu.

His favorite course? The steamed whitefish with mozzarella cheese, grated turnip and a "rich brown sauce." His second favorite? A sea bream "cooked on a charcoal grill" and served with a rice cake, although he says that was a little "underdone."

Overall, the restaurant is the most exciting and interesting out there. "Fortunately, the chef delivered — beyond my incredibly lofty expectations."
