X Pot, is the new hot pot restaurant at the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Palazzo. The restaurant only has the lounge open so far, but they are anticipating the dining room before this article goes to print. Once open, robot servers will be the highlight. Once completely open, the restaurant will feature an entertainment experience with 360-degree projections in high-def, interactive light shows, accompanied by themed sounds to go along with Sichuan hot pot tradition.
Creators Haibin Yang and David Zhao who started with Chubby Cattle in Chinatown have come along with Asian fusion dishes, including A5 Wagyu beef and Kobe beef dry-aged for 100 days. Diners can select the quality and level of meat based on how long the beef has been aged. Diners can also, if they wish, choose and cook their own ingredients; ranging from seafood to meat and vegetables. For now, the lounge offers a menu of oyster shooters, wagyu beef sushi, seafood platters, and marinated cherry tomatoes.
When the dining room opens, X Pot will feature performances that include ancient Chinese face-changing ceremonies, noodle dances, and table animation shows, all of them paired with its smart-robot technology.
