Chef Nobu Matsuhisa brought actor Robert De Niro and film producer Meir Teper to Las Vegas last week to check on construction of their new boutique hotel inside Caesars.
De Niro and Teper are among shareholders in the Nobu Hotel, set to open this fall. The celebrity partners were in town to look at some of the model rooms with designers from the Rockwell Group and finalize some of the plans.

Caesars announced in March that it was partnering with Nobu Hospitality to turn the Centurian Tower into the Nobu Hotel, restaurant and lounge. The Nobu brand currently operates 24 restaurants around the world, including one at Hard Rock Hotel, but the venture with Caesars Palace will be its first hotel.
An 11,200-square-foot, 327-seat Nobu restaurant and lounge will be located at the center of the hotel, which will offer 180 rooms.
Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
