    How many places can you buy a burger or steak from Gordon Ramsey? How many Italian places are there on the Strip? How any other sushi places are there?

    It's a giant area with 100k+ people on a weekend; it can support multiples of the same thing. The bigger question to me is why you'd put them so close together, although I guess they don't think they have loads of crossover traffic between the two resorts/surrounding areas

    You phrased it better than I. Why 2 restaurants that are the same so close

    Thanks! I didn't see it on the list of restaurants on Paris' website.

    Do you mean Sekushi and Yang Kong Street? They are different. One is sushi and noodle dishes/soups. The other is Chinese food and Dim Sum. I guess they are both "asian food", but I can get a burger at Beer Park, Burger Brasserie, and Cafe Americano at Paris. I can get steak at GR, MAG, etc.

    That spicy soup at YK Street saved me from a hangover more than once. Nothing like a vat of chili oil to sweat out all that bad stuff. :haha:

    I think they meant 2 Nobus, one at Bally's and one at Paris -- two connected resorts each with their own NOBU. But Rumor makes a good point that there's so much traffic that each place can support its own Nobu. (Maybe).

    [Tangent: I just wish Paris was the only one -- the Bally's location took over SEA, my favorite Thai restaurant on the strip. Lemongrass is fine, but more expensive and lacking some of SEA's options. And I can't walk to Lotus of Siam from the strip]

    The Nobu at Ballys was only temporary while they renovated and remodeled Hardrock to Virgin, it left Ballys and went back to Virgin...you Have one at Caesars Palace, one at Virgin and one soon to be at Paris...plenty distance between them

    The sizing on that for something with a big name just doesn’t seem right. Really wouldn’t be surprised to see it tuck into more of the empty buffet area. (I miss the buffet).

    So we can blame Nobu for killing all the restaurants at Bally's. Paris needs more places to eat because Bally's people are starving!

    Hate to hear that. I'm sure the prices will be much higher.
