Roy Choi Shares First Look at 'Best Friend' Coming to Las Vegas at Park MGM
“Hip hop-to-bibimbop…. My neighborhood mixed with the Vegas good-good”
LAS VEGAS (September 6, 2018) – The first glimpse into Roy Choi’s vision for his Las Vegas debut at Park MGM is official. Chef Choi released the following statement and images of his original restaurant concept, Best Friend, opening this December.
“Best Friend is a remixed and remastered collection of the evolution of our Los Angeles – its food, its music, its culture. It is the only place to sink your teeth into all the flavors from Kogi-to-Commissary and everything in between, along with fresh new ideas I’ve been cooking up for years. It’s Koreatown in a capsule – a portal to the streets of LA, but also rooted in what makes Las Vegas… VEGAS. Hip hop-to-bibimbop. Kimchi-to-spaghetti. BBQ and late-night food. My neighborhood mixed with the Vegas good-good. I want Best Friend to energize the minds of people looking to experience the best in life. Whether they are from Hollywood or Hong Kong, D.C. or Down Under, I hope all guests are licking their fingers with their mouths full saying ‘holy sh!t’ as they reach across the table for another bite. LA food in Las Vegas. Los Vegas. Best Friend. Forever.” – Roy Choi
