David Chang Brings His LA Blockbuster Majordomo to Las Vegas Next

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, plans to open a 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 semi-finalist nomination for Restaurant of the Year, plans to open later this year at the Palazzo tower of the Venetian.

In Los Angeles, the restaurant that draws from the city’s Korean and Chinese communities features local ingredients and a massive smoker. In Las Vegas, that translates into a restaurant “…pulling from a diverse range of food traditions and inspired by the energy of Las Vegas.”

The “instant blockbuster” in Los Angeles was named one of the best new restaurants in 2018 by former Eater restaurant critic Bill Addison for a menu that showcases the “chef at his confident prime.” While Chang’s interpretation of dishes might intermingle cuisines, such as sausage-stuffed peppers that uses a Korean-inspired recipe combined with a filling Tennessee’s Allan Benton of Benton’s Hams, while a favorite dish, smoked short rib with rice wrapping paper, is sliced table side. Eater LA describes it as “one of the most luxurious and elevated galbi presentations in the city.” A decadent boneless chuck short rib comes with melted raclette shaved off at the table.

LA’s menu includes a marinated black cod, crispy pork belly kohlrabi, roasted duck with crispy rice, and boiled whole chicken with black truffle and maitake mushrooms. Several dishes need to be ordered in advance.

Majordomo, defined as “a person who makes arrangements, or takes charge for another,” plans to let that sentiment guide its essence. “In that spirit, we aim to provide a lively and engaging experience for our guests,” a publicist for Chang wrote in a press statement.

The restaurant takes over the former Carnevino space at the Palazzo, next door to the stunning Mott 32. The Palazzo’s website for Majordomo just went live, while the restaurant’s Instagram site also turned on with nine posts.
