Tao Asian Bistro, the highest grossing independent restaurant in the United States, adds to its dining options with a new omakase experience that puts diners in the hands of chef. The massive restaurant at the Venetian kicks off the once-a-month multi-course dinner on Sunday, Oct. 6, with eight seats at both 6 and 9 p.m. for $130 per person, with an optional $35 sake pairing.
Chef Jun Hiroshima leads the changing menu that reflects fresh catches, appetizers, sashimi, seasonal nigiri, and dessert.
A recent preview of the dinner started with a Shikoku oyster with caviar and a Blue Point oyster with uni, followed by chu-toro and kampachi with fresh wasabi. Diners sit at the sushi bar to watch a grilled king crab with A5 wagyu beef is seared. Then comes a roster of sushi, featuring six different fish, with aka dash with scallop as a middle course, followed by seven more sushi selections, including A5 wagyu with foie gras. The dinner ended with monk with matcha latte.
Diners can make reservations on the Tao website. Future dinners take place on Sunday, Nov. 3, and Sunday, Dec. 8.
