Chicago can add another swanky destination to its culinary and hospitality slate.
The Robert De Niro-backed Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Chicago will take up residence on the corner of Randolph and Peoria in early 2016.
The boutique Nobu Hotel will feature 155 rooms, and a restaurant helmed by Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Initial plans include an indoor and outdoor bar and a rooftop lounge.
Nobu has 28 locations worldwide, including 11 in the U.S.
