Just days after HIG Management and their corporate sushi chef Eric Ou revealed the ambition for their Little Tokyo restaurant at Paris Las Vegas, the concept has undergone a name change.
Sekushi Japanese & Raw Bar is under construction next door to HIG’s casual, Taiwan-inspired Yong Kang Street restaurant at the resort’s "Le Boulevard" restaurant row. Adjacent to the Le Village Buffet, Sekushi, translated as "sexy," is described as offering "fine dining" and is planned to be open for lunch and dinner.
Smaller in size than Yong Kang Street, the 1,425-square-foot space can host a maximum occupancy of 49 guests and includes seating inside and at a counter facing the open kitchen. Chef Ou has been teasing possible menu dishes including "wasabi tobiko," akami, and "omakase sushi nigiri." The sushi choices will be "frequently-changing" and can be paired with a broad selection of sake.
No reason has been given for the name change, but HIG already operates more than 20 fast casual outposts under the Little Tokyo moniker in shopping mall food courts around the country, specializing in teriyaki and tempura dishes. Promised to be "coming soon," the Paris Las Vegas concept is now hiring for all positions.
