Congratulations, Chicago, you're getting a Nobu. Eater Chicago has a press release announcing chef/embire builder Nobu Matsuhisa and his Nobu Hospitality Group's plans to open the Nobu Hotel and Restaurant sometime in 2016 (a bit later than initial reports had suggested). Nobu's first Chicago project will feature "155 luxury rooms, the Nobu Restaurant and a special indoor and outdoor bar, lounge and venue on the rooftop." Expansion-minded restaurant investor/actor Robert De Niro is a backer of the project.
