Zuma is now open at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, dishing out Japanese izakaya fare. Of course there’s sushi and sashimi, along with dishes from the main kitchen and the robata grill as well.
Noriyoshi Muramatsu of Tokyo-based Studio Glitt designed the 9,000-square-foot space using capture four natural elements — earth, fire, water and air, as well as wood, rusted iron, stone and glass.
Neon lights and man-made structures create Zuma’s focal point. Look for organic materials, such as a feature wall composed of natural stone from Chiang Mai in Thailand. The reception desk, bar and sushi counter are all made of tree trunks, also sourced from Thailand. The patchwork wall in the lounge has been created from boldly colored Japanese paper.
The restaurant, located on the third floor of the resort, features views of the Las Vegas Strip and offers two glass-enclosed private dining rooms, both of which seat 14 guests.
