Featuring the dynamic pairing of Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi and design impresario Philippe Starck, Katsuya by Starck is truly a feast for the senses. With specialty cocktails, unique rolls and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors to the American palate. Signature dishes include Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño and Miso-Marinated Black Cod. With superb talent and exacting precision, Katsuya by Starck is changing the face of Japanese cuisine. Katsuya is the Los Angeles Times Readers’ Choice "Best Sushi Restaurant" in Southern California, and one of OpenTable's "50 Hottest Restaurants in the U.S."<br /><br />Opening at <a href="http://www.slshotels.com" target="_blank"> SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino</a>, Labor Day Weekend!

"The quality and presentation are not top rate, but you will be charged top rate prices.
We stopped by at 9 PM on a Sunday after a show at the Pantages in Hollywood. We had the raw oysters, OK but not great. The yellowtail carpaccio with jalapenos, not too bad, but small portions. Lobster dynamite, nicely presented in a half shell, but not the usual way on top of a sushi. Otoro was like regular toro anywhere else, but at a premium of $10 per single slice. Spanish mackerel not great. Kampachi, same. Two hand rolls with spicy tuna and yellowtail -- boring. The cucumber lime cocktail named Katsuya refresh? was good but overpriced."
