Hatsumi is a great new place in downtown LV. amazing unique dishes. Have an open mind and try many small dishes. We tried a few and enjoyed all of them. Make sure to book a table, since the restaurant isnt very big, and word of mouth is making this a hot spot.
Deciding on whether to give four or five stars for Hatsumi is a challenge for me. In many areas areas Hatsumi is a standout and a great part of the local food scene. Upon arrive we were greeted and shortly shown to a table. We arrive a bit earlier than most and the restaurant was mainly empty. Being our first time there, our waiter explained the menu and off we went. We ordered a variety of items to try out along with a few drinks. Everything that came to our table was visually appealing, a little small on the portion size, but and ultimately tasty. The same was true for our drinks as well. Maybe that was the problem. Some of the food was too tasty, and given the size we needed or order a lot to feel like we were well fed. Here is the only area that was not perfect - the final bill. We eat out on a regular basis and are familiar with the costs, however this was on a level that I did not expect. Maybe I could have been better prepared, or counted the little sticks we ordered better, but that is not something that I am accustomed to doing. So in the end, we would love to return, just once my wallet has recovered.
Very small but nice place. Background music is very loud. The food is fresh and nicely presented. Only 2 of us and we shared 5 dishes. We had been highly anticipating the meal and were mostly disappointed. Not the 'flavor explosion' we were hoping for.... even with the accompanying sauces.... and the Japanese chicken was overfried. A couple of the plates took 20 minutes. Will we go back? Probably not.
We made our first visit there last night for Happy Hour and it was fabulous. The skewers are amazing and the service outstanding! We'll definitely be back!!
I'd have pictures of the food, but we inhaled it so fast. Everything was so on point. The cocktail to start was great. The sake recommendation was on point. All the small plates were phenomenal. Skip the strip and come here for dinner. We had way more value at this place than any restaurant that pays a celebrity chief for their face on the menu.
