Almost two yeas since a premature announcement of its demise, BarMasa and Tetsu from chef Masa Takayama has shuttered on schedule at Aria to be replaced by the “opulent seafood, sushi & steak” of Catch Las Vegas.

Expanding from its Los Angeles, New York, Dubai, and Playa del Carmen, Mexico, successes, Catch describes itself as “known for attracting A-listers from around the world” and will bring “an elevated, interactive atmosphere from early evening to prime-time dinner, late night and special events.” The spacious footprint is situated between Sage and Julian Serrano Tapas.

The bright and airy space has been allocated an estimated $6,712,055 for its makeover, creating “a high-energy, indoor-outdoor dining experience.” Opening the rear section of BarMasa could create possible patio views of the Cosmopolitan and the The Bellagio — CityCenter — Monte Carlo tram traveling overhead.

Catch recently updated its website to promote a “late fall” Las Vegas debut, serving “globally inspired high-end seafood selections such as the Catch Roll, Truffle Sashimi, Wagyu on a Rock and Cantonese Lobster,” plus “stunning handcrafted cocktails.”

Current job descriptions require potential staffers to be familiar with surroundings of “superior quality and presentation, consistent with AAA Five Diamond/Forbes Five Star standards.”

Chef Takayama’s sushi had been a fixture at the resort since Aria’s opening day in 2009, adding Tetsu’s teppan grill specialties in 2012.
