Fans of Nobu, or Japanese food in general, listen up: On Wednesday, Oct. 9, 28 Nobu chefs from around the nation will gather at the restaurant’s Caesars Palace location, located in Las Vegas’s new Nobu Hotel (inside Caesars), and will present a seven-course omakase menu, presided over by chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself.
The event, dubbed "Nobu United," will involve chefs from the Nobu locations in Malibu, Calif.; San Diego, Calif.; Los Angeles; Dallas; Miami; New York; Lanai, Hawaii; Waikiki; Las Vegas; Vail, Colo.; and Aspen, Colo. They’ve been working for months to craft the evening’s menu, and it’s shaping up to be an once-in-a-lifetime dinner.
The event will begin at 5:30 that night, with cocktails and passed canapés including salmon and ikura with yuzu jalapeño miso. Each of the dishes served at the dinner will be a never-before-seen collaboration, along the lines of scallop baked in the shell with smoked tomato and soy salt (third course) and salt-cured tuna, lemon-cured salmon with truffle, and kinmedai with karasumi (sushi course, pictured). The meal beginning at 5:30 will cost $195 per person, and the tasting menu will also be offered at 9:30 p.m. for $170, but doesn’t include the canapés and cocktails. A wine and sake pairing can be served with your meal for an additional $80 per person.
