We went inside SushiSamba a few weeks ago and anyone who is a fan of this sushi-fusion restaurant, will be very happy. Aside from having its usual staples--both on the sushi side and the cocktail side--the restaurant has refreshed the menu with a few new entrees, rolls, appetizers, cocktails and even robata grill fare.
The restaurant is also working its way towards having the largest sake collection on the West Coast (see below), all of it overseen by a kickass female sake-sommelier.
But perhaps what you take away the most after dining here is the amazing graffiti artwork that adorns the walls and was done by a Brazillian artist, Flip, who hand-painted for two straight weeks.
The art, much like the menu, is a fusion of Tokyo and Brazil with a bit of a dark edge to it. In fact, this SushiSamba was meant to be a little darker (both in lighting and aesthetics) than the other SushiSamba restaurants, namely because this is Sin City. Throw in the wooden ribbon curves near the entrance and it's quite an exotic space.
Once you're done eating, you can also slink over to the small club SugarCane behind SushiSamba where more of Flip's artwork can be seen. You can even order bottles of sake for your table and late night eats until 4am. Perfect for you and your entourage. Har. har.
SushiSamba serves both lunch and dinner, a special late-night menu and Sunday brunch. Go here for the hours of operation.
