Sushi in Bed: Why We're Extra Excited for Nobu Hotel
January 30, 2013 at 4:02 PM
Yesterday we gave you 10 good reasons to sleep over at the first-ever Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Today, we'd like to expand on one of those reasons--room service. After all, if you're gonna build a hotel around your successful restaurant brand, the room service options should be nothing short of phenomenal.
Fortunately, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa created the room service menu himself, instead of passing the duty off to other chefs. He's even expanded beyond sushi and sashimi into breakfast. So now that you're on the edge of drooling over your computer, let's get eating.
For breakfast, you can start with a Tamago yaki ($23), a Japanese style omelette with your choice of ingredients from tomato and cheese to unagi and king crab. Or you could go with Eggs Matsuhisa ($24), done with roasted asparagus, bonito egg sauce, ikura rolls and spicy tuna. If you want to keep it more traditional, order up the blueberry and yuzu soba pancakes or the green tea waffles (both $22) served with bananas, strawberries, yuzu whipped cream, miso butter and maple syrup. Traditional Japanese and American breakfasts are also available as well as general bakery/pastry items.
After breakfast is over, guests can order off the All-Day Dining menu. Yup, Nobu dishes are available 24 hours a day for guests. The options range from signature dishes like yellowtail jalapeño ($28), Nobu sashimi tacos ($30) and Black Cod Miso ($38) to proper entree plates like jidori free-range chicken ($35) and a 24oz bone-in rib-eye ($100). The menu also includes those fanciful Nobu Bento Boxes, one of which is going for $288, more than the opening room rate! Just try not to spill the soy sauce in the bed. That could get messy.
Lastly, guests can cap off their Nobu-in-bed experience with dessert options such as tofu cheesecake (umm), mochi ice cream, green tea brûlée, and Suntory whiskey cappuccino, all $14.
In case you missed it, The Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace will open on February 4 with rooms going for $269 a night. Room service charges, including taxes, delivery fees and gratuity could easily surpass the room rate. Want more inside info on the hotel? Simply download the Nobu Hotel app from iTunes. That's where we found a plethora of info like shoes shines are $15 and Range Rovers to and from the airport are $77 each way.
