Inyo Asian Variety Restaurant, the Japanese, Korean and Thai eatery in Chinatown, has been sold. Owner Peter Chen tells Eater Vegas that he is moving back to New Mexico to run his parent’s Chinese restaurant so they can retire.

Chen opened Inyo on New Year’s Day in 2015, bringing small plates from former Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Little Buddha at the Palms chef Gregg Fortunato.

He tells Eater Vegas that the new owners may bring more Korean dishes to the menu.

When Inyo opened, the menu featured kushi skewers for up to $5.95 for Wagyu beef, crab or oxtail fried rice for $6.95 each, carpaccios, tartares or tatakis in big eye tuna, Atlantic salmon or Wagyu beef for less than $10 and even the Inyo chicken wings, twice fried until extra crispy with your choice of sauce — Japanese tebasaki, Thai chile nam pla or Korean gochugaru — for $13.95 for 12 pieces.
