Chef Masa Takayama, whose Japanese cuisine remains unrivaled, makes his much-anticipated entrance into Las Vegas with BARMASA at ARIA Resort & Casino. Continuing the tradition that has made his New York restaurant legendary, the ARIA outpost offers two separate dining spaces, each unique in ambiance, service and cuisine. The 150-seat BARMASA, located in a casual, airy space beneath a TK-foot vaulted ceiling, invites guests to sample their choice of modern Japanese food from an à la carte menu. The more exclusive Shaboo, set in an intimate, reserved room of just 54 seats, offers an omakase-style experience orchestrated anew each day by Chef Masa. Wrapped in a design by Richard Bloch Architect, the interior’s use of natural elements creates an effect both intimate and serene, aptly reflecting the purity of Masa’s cuisine.
