The Hard Rock finally has a restaurant that matches its ambitions as both a casino and entertainment hub. It helps that chef Alex Becker is in charge. He spent the past decade working for Nobu and Katsuya, international players in the high-end Japanese restaurant game. No expense was spared in creating this luxe dining room, with an undulating ceiling meant to mimic the ocean, gorgeous glistening tile walls and a central bar with an astonishing chandelier that will remind you of seaweed. From sushi to tempura, maki to sashimi, Becker elegantly nails every Japanese food style.
