Japanese Cuisine by Omae starts its seven-course omakase dinner next week, and Eater Vegas has a first look at the menu. Chef Takeshi Omae, whose Omae XEX in Tokyo received Michelin stars twice, stops serving his $20 three-course lunch to bring instead the new $150 omakase menu (priced at the lower $100 all September).

The menu starts with an appetizer of Ikura and mushroom with grated daikon and ponzu sauce, followed by an antipasto course of Amaebi tartar, celeriac puree and tomate sorbet. The third course, steamed, is dubbed Mushimono, with steamed bocconcini with golden brown sauce. That's followed by sashimi — three varieties of from Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan. Next up, from the charcoal grill, overnight aged Kinme-Dai (red bream) with truffle sauce. Follow that with grilled Wagyu steak with roasted onion and wasabi mashed potato. An assortment of desserts ends the meal.

Reservations are most definitely required for this 12-seat restaurant that will have seatings at 5:30 and 8 p.m. nightly.
