Miami Beach Nobu Will Be World's Largest Nobu Restaurant and Bar Lounge

The much anticipated opening of Nobu Hotel at Eden Roc Miami Beach is coming along, with further information being released by Nobu Hospitality.

The project, a partnership between chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert DeNiro, and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, will open in 2015, as part of a multi-million dollar vision to revitalize and re-launch the Eden Roc as the premier resort in Miami Beach. The nautical-shaped Morris Lapidus-designed hotel was once the playground of the rich and famous, with luminaries like Elizabeth Taylor, Ernest Hemingway, Frank Sinatra, and Robert DeNiro himself, sunning, sleeping, and carousing there, but newer and shiners hotels and renovations, including the spectacular Fontainebleau Miami Beach overshadowed the Eden Roc in recent years.

The Nobu Hotel at Eden Roc Miami Beach is the second U.S. hotel under the Nobu Hospitality brand. Similarly, Nobu Hotel opened at Cesars Palace Las Vegas in February 2013 with special non-Vegas-like features including a welcoming in-room tea service featuring green tea and a special rice cracker that has been imported from Nobu's hometown in Japan, according to Forbes.
