Caesars Entertainment has revealed a plan to bring Nobu hotels and restaurants at Caesars Atlantic City and Harrah’s New Orleans. Additionally, Caesars will refurbish Nobu Hotels at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas and Nobu restaurant at Paris Las Vegas.
Nobu hotel-restaurant brand was conceived in the 1990s by celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, and film produce Meir Teper.
The First Nobu hotel opened at Caesars Palace in 2013.
Nobu restaurants are known for their specials sushi with fish imported from Asia. Their restaurants are billed in Japanese-Peruvian fusion.
Nobu’s relationship with Caesars isn’t the only hospitality company’s involvement in the gaming industry. James Packer, an Australian billionaire, acquired 20 percent ownership of Nobu through his Crown Resorts Empire for $100 million.
For a long time, Packer yearned to interact with Hollywood elites. After merging with Nobu, Packer had the opportunity to rub shoulder with stars in press featured events.
Packer is no longer the chairman and CEO of Crown Corporation. The casino tycoon, however, still retains a 37 percent stake in the company.
