At 12,775 square feet, the new Nobu Restaurant and Lounge Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s largest and most innovative restaurant to date. With more than 325 seats, the restaurant offers a sophisticated yet whimsical experience and features a sushi bar, exclusive private dining area and an impressive selection of dishes including Nobu’s signature items such as black cod with miso, rock shrimp tempura, yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno and squid “pasta”. Globally recognized as a culinary leader, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa will introduce teppanyaki tables for the first time in the U.S. (offered in a variety of seven-course tasting menus), along with the Las Vegas debut of brick oven dishes. The ambiance is as brilliant as the food, with bowed columns of bamboo lining the exterior of the restaurant and lounge to resemble the structure of the traditional Japanese ikebana basket used for the art of flower arranging, plus natural design elements incorporating stone, wood and paper. Both restaurant and lounge are open Sunday – Thursday 5-11pm and Friday and Saturday 5pm-midnight, with the lounge staying open until 1 a.m. on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends.
