Chef Matthias Merges brings his imaginative, wildly popular fine-dining riff on Japanese street eats from Chicago (where it was named one of Food & Wine’s Best Restaurants of 2012) to Las Vegas’s Monte Carlo. Expect the cedar walls and exposed-wood beams of the 76-seat space to invigorate the hotel casino as a newfound foodie destination. On the menu: Merges’s famous ramen (crispy pork shoulder croquette, poached egg, nori, and cucumber); yakitori-like octopus charred over an open flame; marinated eggplant steam buns; and even not-too-sweet plump donuts made with tofu, sweet potato, and rosemary.
