Emperor made the move from Manhattan to develop a menu for the dynamic Japanese restaurant and lounge on the upper level of F.A.M.E., which is opening this spring at The LINQ Las Vegas.

“With F.A.M.E. I have found a concept that blends perfectly with my style of cooking,” said Emperor. “The menu will be innovative, fresh and flavorful; blending cosmopolitan flavors and techniques with traditional Japanese cuisine.”

Various styles of Japanese cuisine will be on the menu and guests may choose to dine at a table or at the Tokyo-style Robata Bar, Sushi Bar or Tempura Bar. The cocktail menu will feature an array of Asian-inspired cocktails made with sake and other traditional spirits.

Emperor’s menu will complement the hip atmosphere at the upper level, which will bring fine dining and a night on the town into one venue with a DJ booth in the dining room and two patios, including one with lounge-style seating adjacent to a bar.

Emperor was inspired to become a chef while traveling and entertaining investors in Asia as a Wall Street banker. He received his formal training at the Culinary Institute of America with an emphasis on Japanese cuisine, and then completed his apprenticeship at a Kaiseki restaurant in Tokyo.

Throughout his 25 years in the culinary industry, Emperor has been named the Southeast Champion of Food & Wine magazine’s inaugural “People’s Choice Best New Chefs in America” and his restaurant, Kalu Asian Kitchen, was named one of the “Best New Restaurants in America” by Esquire in 2011.
