Akira Back opened in the summer of 2022 in The Colony with chef Akira Back at the helm. Many might remember the former snowboarder-turned-restaurateur from his 2008 appearance on Iron Chef America where he competed against Bobby Flay.

That same year, Back's Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant and Lounge opened inside the Bellagio in Las Vegas with great success. Since, Back has built an empire that boasts 22 global outposts including locations in Paris and Dubai. In 2017, his Seoul concept Dosa was awarded a prestigious Michelin star.
