Boldly promising a “one of a kind” Korean barbecue dining experience, 888 Korean BBQ has set its initial preview dates, ahead of a “grand opening” by the end of the month.
The ground floor, good fortune-inspired restaurant replaces Mother’s Korean Grill right in the center of the Chinatown Plaza retail hub, across Spring Mountain Road from Magal BBQ.
On Dec. 20-22, from 5 p.m. to closing, 888 Korean will openi with yet-to-be confirmed future daily operating hours of 4 p.m. to midnight.
The menu is focused on eight protein choices, including beef, pork, and seafood, and promoting itself as the first Korean restaurant in Las Vegas to serve kurobata, natural pork belly, an option more frequently found on Japanese menus.
Premium meat upgrades already announced will include prime steak and wagyu, presented on custom-made platters created “by a carpenter in South Korea” and made from lacquer-coated oakwood.
