Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas keeps the changes coming with news that Zuma, the Japanese restaurant chain from Azumi Group’s Rainer Becker and Arjun Waney that first popped up in London in 2002, is headed to the resort’s P3 art studio.

Construction on the 9,000-square-foot space starts in about six months, according to Bloomberg, and the restaurant plans to open in late 2016, sitting next to Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, which also just happens to serve sushi. Tokyo-based Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Studio Glitt designs the space.

A sushi counter and robata grill are all part of Zuma, where dishes such as lobster tempura, which goes for $64 in New York City, and tuna tataki make the menu. “…if you order well, avoiding the more over-the-top presentations, you can sit down to enjoy the show over a perfectly nice dinner at Zuma,” Bloomberg food critic Tejal Rao says in a one-star review of the New York outpost.

Zuma landed in New York last year and already has locations in Hong Kong, Miami, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Dubai, which Bloomberg says gross more than $200 million in annual revenue.
