For Nobu Matsuhisa’s eponymous Nobu—one of the most well-known and respected Japanese restaurants around—it can be a challenge to keep offering something to lure diners. At Nobu’s Hard Rock Hotel outpost, a new tasting menu for locals is more than enough reason for guests to taste and savor any number of the Japanese and Peruvian-influenced dishes.
The new executive chef, Frank Gorricita, came from Nobu’s Tribeca and Midtown 57 locations in New York a few months ago and has infused the menu with dishes combines clean, Japanese flavors mixed with Peruvian touches for a creative twist. The food complements the restaurant—a chic, contemporary space open since 1999—more than ever before.
The tasting menu ($75) is a dreamy six-course menu offered only for locals who show a valid Nevada ID and a free hard Rock Hotel Backstage Pass card. Available through the end of August, this one-of-a-kind culinary experience features a prelude of yellowtail sashimi spiked with jalapeño and the freshest tuna sashimi salad followed by the crisp rock shrimp tempura glazed with a mouth-watering spicy sauce. Other courses include the popular black cod miso, an assortment of sushi rolls, miso soup, and a chef’s choice dessert.
If you want to order more food or experience the menu on a return visit, we recommend the mushroom toban yaki, eggplant with miso, scallops with wasabi pepper, big eye tuna tataki, or any of the Wagyu beef dishes. It’s worth noting that locals also receive 20 percent off Nobu’s menu through August 31 with a Rock Hotel Backstage Pass card and a request for the offer. 4455 Paradise Rd., 702-693-5000
