Reversing an expansion in the works since 2017, locals Geisha House is no longer upgrading to a Strip location, but its abandoned footprint at the Miracle Mile Shops will be soon be replaced by another similar concept.
Describing itself as the largest Korean barbecue restaurant in Las Vegas, Chosun Hwaro will fill 13,000 square feet, including room for Nara Teppan, an in-house teppanyaki dining option. The Korean-based operators run the Ebadom restaurant franchise.
Overseen by executive chef David Moon, the restaurant replaces Todai Japanese Sushi & Seafood Buffet on the Harmon Avenue side of the retail hub. The space had previously been revealed as the first Nevada expansion site for the Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse chain.
Geisha House began work on its build out more than a year ago, with early plans featuring patio seating on Harmon, similar to neighbors Nacho Daddy and Buffalo Wild Wings.
In addition to its Japanese steak and sushi menu, still found on Decatur Boulevard in North Las Vegas and the original eastside home on Desert Inn Road, Geisha House was preparing to debut Ebadom Jeju Island inside the restaurant, a new spin-off dedicated to its own versions of Korean barbecue dishes.
Currently hiring and originally hoping to debut by the end of March, Chosun Hwaro is still deep in construction.
