It's been three years in the making, but all will be forgotten when Morimoto Las Vegas officially debuts on Oct. 21 inside the former Shibuya space at the MGM Grand.

Chef Masaharu Morimoto had once planned to make his Las Vegas debut at the Mirage, but the move further south on the Strip has created a more complementary environment for the international star.

The 5,542-square-foot space has been designed by Yabu Pushelberg and also hosts "exotic photographs" by Yasumichi Morita.

Open for dinner only, daily opening hours will be Sunday to Thursday from 5 to 10 p.m. and closing at 10.30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Featuring a sushi bar and teppanyaki, or hibachi tables, meals will be created "before your eyes on a hot iron plate." On the menu, some of the greatest hits from the current Morimoto empire and a unique to Las Vegas vodka and sake cocktail.

Already spreading his infectious spirit around the resort, chef Morimoto can be seen encouraging guests to make money at their blackjack tables and spend it at his restaurant in a new promotional video.
