What do you get when world-renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa and two-time Academy Award-winner Robert De Niro get together? A modern luxury hotel, of course.
April 2013 marked the beginning of Matsuhisa’s hotel venture, when his first lodging opened as a hotel within a hotel at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. But the duo’s collaboration didn’t start there, as De Niro previously co-funded and provided creative direction for Nobu restaurants worldwide. He’s also responsible for luring the Japan-born Los Angeles chef to New York.
