Subtlety isn't exactly a virtue here. A humongous temple bell, weighing more than 800 lbs, hangs over an intricate Buddha ice sculpture in the main dining room. Everything exudes sleekness and sex appeal, from the smooth leather banquettes to the glowing red mural. As you can imagine, this place attracts a lot of high rollers; fortunately, the 13,000-square-foot restaurant can hold them all. The kitchen prides itself on its Kobe beef from Japan and its cousin Wagyu beef from the United States. They serve it wrapped around foie gras, grilled on a river stone, and raw and thinly sliced on an igloo of ice. There is also a serious sushi menu and a long list of Asian-style entrees. Serious big spenders can opt for the seven-course prix fixe menu ($145) with an available wine or sake pairing. If you're having a drink in the upstairs lounge overlooking the dining room, you have plenty of choices; the wine list reaches 600 varieties and there are more than 60 types of sake.—Keith Wagstaff
