Las vegas restaurants

2 of David Chang’s Las Vegas restaurants just closed

Chef, author, restaurateur, podcaster and television personality, David Chang is known for redefining modern Asian cuisine. It first ventured onto the Las Vegas culinary scene in 2017, introducing another location Momofuku (via Eater). Since then, the mogul has hosted a slew of other restaurant concepts, including New York, Washington DC, Toronto and Las Vegas.

With the success of Majordōmo Los Angeles, Food & Wine reports that Chang unveiled a secondary Las Vegas location at The Venetian on Dec. 30, 2019. The restaurant offered diners steakhouse fare with a flair, serving large sharing plates of lobster and Wagyu beef for nearly $300 (via Yelp).

Eater explains that Moon Palace (which moved in next door a few weeks later in January 2020), instead focused on take-out fare. The menu was limited to burgers topped with cheese and grilled onions, seasoned and fried potato chips, and pancake sandwiches filled with marshmallow fluff and dipped in chocolate.

Although these two restaurants are no longer, according to the Momofuku website, Momofuku and Bang Bar, both Las Vegas-based The Cosmopolitan, continue to operate.
