Two new pieces of information emerged about Yusho, the Japanese grill and noodle house that closed in late May at the Monte Carlo.
Owner Matthias Merges, who brought Yusho from Chicago to Las Vegas, says his restaurant, a stalwart on the Eater 38, was shut down to make way for the 40,000-square-foot Eataly, set to debut at the resort in 2018.
“The Monte Carlo hotel where we were located is re-concepting with a 40,000-square-foot Eataly, so we’re relocating,” he said.
He tells the Chicago Tribune that his company, Folkart Restaurant Management, “has been asked to look across the street at the MGM hotel for their new location.”
Last year, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto opened his eponymous sushi restaurant at the MGM Grand, taking over the former Shibuya space. Earlier this year, the MGM Grand announced that China Tang Las Vegas from Hong Kong-based hospitality company Lai Sun Dining brings Cantonese fare influenced by provincial dishes from Sichuan, Shanghai and Beijing sometime this year or next.
