Another entry from Akira Back, this stylish Mandalay Bay eatery puts a creative twist on sushi by adding unusual ingredients to the staples of raw fish and rice. Take the Pop Rockin’ roll, which comes with spicy tuna, crab, salmon, avocado and, yes, Pop Rocks; or try the gratuitously named 007 Octopussy with crab salad, spicy octopus and crispy potatoes. Purists can order pieces of classic sushi or sashimi, friends who prefer their dinner cooked will find yuzu ribeye or grilled Scottish salmon and everyone can enjoy the view of party people preparing for a night on the town.
