In the sparkly white-on-white-on-white space (look at the picture, it totally deserves three “whites”), you can incongruously enjoy Chef Yu Li’s menu of typical Chinese street food like hand-pulled noodles, Shanghai-style house-made soup dumplings, Cantonese-style dim sum, and a slew of meat and seafood specialties served in what the restaurant calls “a uniquely designed, bird’s nest-inspired floral cocoon.” Sounds so...nature-y.
The point of opening BNN9, as well as Caesars Palace’s other Chinese seafood restaurant, Sea Harbour, is meant to attract more Asian tourists. According to Casesars Palace President Gary Selesner, is that:
“with millions of Chinese leisure visitors exploring world destinations, millions more who regularly eat Asian noodles, dim sum and similar dishes, and relatively few authentic mainland Chinese restaurants in the U.S., we knew that Beijing Noodle No. 9 would immediately appeal to a variety of Caesars Palace guests….We have opened these restaurants with great respect for china’s culinary traditions—a sincere gesture of welcome to Chinese visitors and to all who enjoy sampling the world’s great cuisines.”
Translation: Chinese people, please, please bring your disposable income and come eat here!
If you are one of the tourists not familiar with Chinese cuisine, you can check out what the chefs are sizzling up in the kitchen through the large showcase window at the restaurant’s entrance, or at the wok-and-appetizer kitchen at the counter. Or just lazily watch the fish and seafood drifting by in the dining room’s custom-designed aquariums from one of the 100 seats in the joint.
The menu and hours are subject to change, but for now, you can grab lunch or dinner there from 11am-11pm, seven days a week.
