Hillary Eaton Steamed Foie Gras Egg Custard


  • Mon.-Thurs. 12 p.m.-2:30 p.m., 6 p.m.-11 p.m., Fri. 12 p.m.-2:30 p.m., 6 p.m.-midnight, Sat. 6 p.m.-midnight
The second location of chef Mitsuo Endo’s celebrated izakaya — a staple of the Las Vegas food scene — is housed in a former soba house behind an understated façade. In this neighborhood of flash, it would be pretty easy to go by unnoticed if not for the cloth sign out front. While the menu is much like that of the Las Vegas outpost — there's Endo’s house-made agedashi tofu, beef tendon robata and silky foie gras chawanmushi — this is a more expensive take, at least on a few of the menu items, compared to the Vegas counterpart. -Garrett Snyder Read our full review.
