Sekushi Japanese & Raw Bar is making an expansion at the Paris Las Vegas, adding a new concept and new name addendum to its 10-month old sushi restaurant.
Iron Skillet, originally known as the Sekushi Grill on early paperwork, is currently building an extra 843-square-feet of dedicated charcoal grilling on the eastern side of its compact 1,425-square-foot sake bar, easy to find on the resort’s Le Boulevard restaurant row.
Created by Sekushi’s owners HIG Management, the team also runs the three-year old Taiwanese-inspired Yong Kang Street restaurant right next door. An estimated $300,000 has been allocated for Iron Skillet’s construction costs, creating enough room for a maximum occupancy of 40 inside.
Yet to reveal extra details about the project, other than promising it is “coming soon,” HIG’s corporate executive chef Eric Ou and the man behind Sekushi’s Japanese tapas selections is expected to be overseeing the skewered meat, seafood and vegetable combinations.
