Red Sushi at the Golden Nugget is more than just the perfect sushi restaurant; it is also a social experience. Guests come nightly to gather around the bar and enjoy one of the many sake selections available. With signature drinks, a trendy atmosphere, and an award winning menu, Red Sushi is a downtown sushi favorite. The décor in the dining room is modern, warm, and masculine but still fun and lively because the restaurant is open to the Golden Nugget casino. Start off the meal with a marinated seaweed salad with cucumber. Appetizers include shrimp spring rolls with spicy sesame miso dressing, tuna tataki with citrus Ponzu sauce, or beef tataki with wasabi aioli sauce. Red Sushi prides itself on its spicy yet colorful dishes that aren’t too harsh for most palates, but still pack a punch.
Red Sushi offers a large menu of sushi and sashimi. Specialty rolls include the Alaskan Roll which is a California roll wrapped in smoked salmon or the Caterpillar Roll made with eel, cucumber, and avocado. If you’re not in the mood for one of the raw options on the menu, Red Sushi has a large menu of fried and grilled entrees as well. Chicken Katsu is a house favorite. Strips of chicken are fried in a thick and crispy breading and served alongside a special sauce. Land lovers can enjoy a New York Steak grilled to perfection and served alongside a wasabi cream sauce. Also try a unique combination platter like the black cod, salmon, and soft shell crab. Don’t forget about dessert because Red Sushi offers a pineapple crème brulee that you won’t find anywhere else. After dinner the bar gets going with a crowd of people looking to sample one of the sake selections without going too far from the casino. Red Sushi is the perfect place to enjoy a great Japanese meal or just quick drink.
