David Chang, the chef behind Momofuku at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas along with the Netflix series Ugly Delicious and more than a dozen restaurants spanning from New York to Los Angeles, debuts his second restaurant in Las Vegas. Majordōmo Meat & Fish, a restaurant that brings the DNA of his LA location that’s fresh off a James Beard Foundation finalist nomination for Restaurant of the Year, opens at the Palazzo.
The restaurant features a smoked prime rib cart, Korean barbecue, and a raw bar at the entrance, along with meat cases decorating the front and a private dining room.
The menu showcases smoked whole plate short ribs, a staple from his LA menu, prime rib, seafood at a raw bar, and a trio of Bing bread topped with spicy lamb, chickpea Hozon (a culinary lab discovery), and honey butter. The Hozon, a fermented and stone-ground seasoning similar to miso paste, uses “nuts, seeds, and legumes undergo fermentation with a koji cultivated with basmati rice.”
Chang also plans to offer macaroni and chickpea with black truffles, another diner favorite from Los Angeles. Chang also developed the ode to macaroni and cheese in his culinary lab without using cheese.
Majordomo Meat & Fish, The Palazzo, 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 866-725-2990. Open daily from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.
