New York. Dubai. Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Los Angeles. Now Las Vegas. Catch now serves a side of celebrity to go along with Instagram-worthy decor and Asian-influenced seafood, sushi, and steaks at Aria.
It’s a toss-up which will attract diners most. Is it the secret lounge with its own entrance in the back and intimate nooks for shenanigans? The pergula entrance with its hidden design details? The late-night hours? The food? The spacious restaurant sits between Sage and Julian Serrano Tapas, taking over the former BarMasa and Tetsu space that felt more like an airplane hanger than a restaurant with its cold stone decor. Catch instead brings the outdoors inside with its leafy walkway and olive trees in the dining room. MGM Resorts allocated an estimated $6,712,055 in construction costs alone to convert the space.
Catch notes that certain dishes resonate with diners. The Catch Roll features crab, salmon, and miso honey. The truffle sashimi brings tuna, hamachi, chili oil, ponzu, and decadent caviar and black truffle. The wagyu on a rock gets cooked table side on a hot stone with yuzu soy and garlic oil, while the Cantonese lobster features sake and oyster sauce.
The restaurant is open daily from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m., while the lounge opens every Thursday through Saturday from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.
In the meantime, it seems the celebrity angle is winning with actor George Clooney and his Casamigos partner Rande Gerber breaking in the joint over the weekend.
