Actor/writer/director/Nobu hotelier Robert De Niro just got a new title--and a great big thank you-- from the government of Antigua and Barbuda. Prime Minister Gaston Browne has pronounced De Niro “special economic envoy” to the two-island Caribbean country for his commitment to reviving the ailing K Club Resort on Barbuda.
Just yesterday we swooned over the green tea waffles at the Nobu Hotel in Las Vegas and now today, we learn we'll be able to scarf down those breakfast delights on our next trip to Chicago. Or well, maybe our third to next trip to Chicago.
Nobu Hotels officially announced the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant that will open in the West Loop neighborhood on the corner Randolph and Preoria Streets in early 2016. Here are the details from the press release:
Inspired by the world-renowned Japanese culinary genius Chef Nobu and championed by Academy award-winning actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, the boutique Nobu Hotel will feature 155 luxury rooms, the Nobu Restaurant and a special indoor and outdoor bar. A lounge and venue on the rooftop will deliver a fusion of laid-back luxury, high-energy nightlife and exclusive guest room retreats.
No doubt the Nobu in-room dining will be present as will the complimentary green tea Welcome amenity, the Natura Bisse toiletries and the turndown service. However, it will be interesting to see if Chicago will copy the Las Vegas design (pictured above) or if the Rockwell Group will dream up something different. We're feeling adventurous today so let's hope they get creative.
We’d quite like to follow suit, but until our budgets match Bobby’s we’re going to start with what’s on his bookshelves. To replicate that hip Greenwich library feel at home, we secured this shopping list and example of what you’ll find in this luxury hotel where rooms start at $525 a night.
