Virgin Las Vegas Location

“The biggest problem Nobu Matsuhisa faces is that the groundbreaking dishes that made him famous were so good, they’ve been imitated by countless lesser chefs,” notes Al Mancini, host of the Food and Loathing podcast. “As a result, most of us are more familiar with the half-assed knockoffs than his brilliant originals. So when you have the opportunity to visit a Nobu, you owe it to yourself to rediscover why he’s one of the most revered chefs in the world.”

Las Vegas is fortunate to have three Nobu locations where you can rediscover why Matsuhisa's yellowtail with jalapeno and ponzu, miso black cod and tempura rock shrimp have become modern classics, while simultaneously exploring new tastes that excite the chef and his team. While the Caesars Palace location is larger, the one in the Virgin resort has history, dating back to the opening of the hotel's predecessor, the original Hard Rock. The space has been renovated a bit since the biggest rock stars in the world dined here after sets at The Joint. But the ghosts of parties past can still be felt within these walls.
