The new Monte Carlo restaurant Primrose is having a soft opening as part of the property’s transition to Park MGM. In this case, that means just a preview menu is being offered, with the centerpiece grill and garden unavailable until the late-October grand opening. But you can taste the Southern French, vegetable-forward cuisine of Bryce Shuman, formerly of the critically-acclaimed New York restaurant, Betony.
Sake bar at Yui Edomae
Since opening in 2015, the off-Strip gem Yui Edomae has offered some of Las Vegas’ most exquisite — and expensive — sushi. The intimate restaurant has opened an even more intimate sake bar that offers small, more affordable tastes of the chef’s non-sushi creations. The menu at the 15-seat Tsuya includes small bites of abalone, A5 wagyu, ice cream and more for $5 to $20.
