Other Mama

$ $

A true pioneer of the Southwest Valley dining scene,Oother Mama has been one of Las Vegas' premiere seafood restaurants since opening its doors in 2015. Nearly a decade in, the consistently top-tier ingredients and simple-but-creative menu have turned it into a local institution. On any given night, you might find one of Las Vegas’ top chefs, or even a member of the Vegas Golden Knights, grabbing a quick bite of sushi at the bar, or a enjoying a meal with family and friends.

Chef/owner Dan Krohmer is a veteran of Morimoto in Philadelphia, who went on to study sushi in Japan before spending some time on the road cooking for rock and pop superstars. So he clearly knows his stuff when it comes to nigiri and sashimi. What’s a bit more surprising is how amazing his other creations (seafood and otherwise) can be. Hush puppies with caviar, oysters Rockefeller with pork belly, and spicy tuna tartare with waffle fries are all jaw-dropping.

Make sure to get a cocktail. They’re as good as you’ll find anywhere on The Strip, at considerably better prices. And the addition of a separate lounge in 2023 made it much easier to score a table, without sacrificing the restaurant’s intimate feel.
