The new Nobu Restaurant and Nobu Hotel (a hotel-within-a-hotel, actually) will be unveiled at Caesars Palace later this year, but in the meantime, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has shared a glimpse into his new 11,200-square-foot restaurant.

Chef Matsuhisa has 24 signature restaurants around the world, combining “the best of the east and west in a fun and often whimsical setting,” according to the news release. This blog loves it some whimsy.
The release lays it all out for us: “Bowed columns of bamboo will line the exterior of the restaurant to resemble the structure of the traditional Japanese ikebana basket used for the art of flower-arranging…colorful, patterned private dining pods and undulating leather-upholstered screens will wrap the dining room while oversized light fixtures, inspired by Japanese tea whisks and vibrant kimonos, complement the atmosphere. A 15-person bar will be the focal point of the lounge and will feature an oversized bowl hand-carved out of a single block of wood. Designed around the Japanese notion of wabi sabi (simplicity and beauty in natural states), a simple yet intimate space will be achieved through the use of authentic and unrefined finishes.”
Unrelated: We think “Wabi Sabi” would make a great band name.
We can’t wait to see what Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has in store for Caesars Palace. More news to come.
