The fun begins as you enter CATCH through an opulent 80-foot-long arched pergola lined with twinkling foliage overhead and vibrant, bloom-infused flower walls. Don’t be shy about taking a picture in one of the photo nooks, as it seems to be THE thing to do among the Instagram crowd.
Perhaps unsurprisingly (given the restaurant’s name), seafood is the specialty here. What might surprise some newcomers to Las Vegas dining, however, is that some of the freshest seafood in the world can be found in our desert, since some of the nation’s top restaurants have fish flown in daily. Such is the case at this high-end eatery, which made its (fish)bones in L.A., New York and Playa Del Carmen before opening at Aria.
The Asian-inspired menu spans sashimi, sushi, ceviche and all varieties of seafood, (branzino, wild-caught snapper and Spanish octopus are favorites). For those who prefer turf to surf, there are plenty of cuts of beef available, including A5 Japanese wagyu, NY strip and porterhouse.
If you still have room for dessert, one over-the-top option worth indulging in is the “Hit Me.” Smash the chocolate cake to release the decadent liquid “Klondike” bar perched atop a brownie, devil’s food cake and roasted white chocolate ice cream.
CATCH was recommended by six of those surveyed in four different categories (seafood, date night, people watching and brunch), including Off the Strip Editor/Writer Melinda Sheckells.
