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.

  1. Let’s not forget that Nobu New York was the launching pad for Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto who brought Nobu’s fusion philosophy to both the original Japanese version of Iron Chef and Food Network’s Iron Chef America.
