808 Tapas at Village Square Says Aloha Las Vegas – Brings Locals Together Through Business Concept
The New Hawaiian-Asian Infusion Restaurant Holds Grand Opening Celebration Fri., September 28, 5-9 PM

LAS VEGAS-The New 808 Tapas at Village Square has all the makings of a perfect meal out – fresh and delicious food made with quality ingredients, as well as unique sake drinks inspirations concocted by a globally-known master mixologist. But business owner Dean Okada wanted his latest business venture to be more. In turn, they created an intimate space with communal tables in the heart of the restaurant, where small dishes could be shared and a larger palette explored.

“During these challenging economic times we wanted to bring people together by creating a unique center space within the restaurant where business cards can be traded and conversations can take place, adding value to our customers in a different type of local restaurant,” said Dean Okada, 808 Tapas owner.

The recession is another reason why the majority of the dishes range between $4 and $10, allowing folks to enjoy East and West infusion flavors of sushi and tapas dishes created by well-known Executive Chef Yoshiyuki "Yoshi" Kojima, at affordable prices.

808 Tapas, located at 9350 W. Sahara Ave. #150, Las Vegas, NV 89117, inside the Village Square center, will hold its official Grand Opening on Friday, September 28, 2012 from 5 to 9 p.m. to showcase its tapas and sushi dishes, unique sake drink specials, and entertainment by Japanese Taiko drummers and Haleamano band. The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting while the Asian Chamber of Commerce will hold a mixer during the same time. 808 Tapas is on, and Instagram @808Tapas. For more restaurant information, please call 702-485-3433.
