Michael Mina brings the best of California to the heart of Las Vegas. He has fresh ingredients flown in from San Francisco daily. The restaurant focuses mainly on seafood fresh from the bay. However, there are several options for land lovers.
The menu at Nobhill is presented in an engaging way by offering appetizers that are priced per person and served to the entire table. Group appetizers include the American caviar parfait, fried Sonoma chicken, butter-poached kobe beef rib-eye, classic cheese fondue, banana tarte tatin, or the favorite, the hors d’oeuvres sampler. Individual appetizers include inventive soups, salads, and foie gras. The décor of the restaurant is warm with a hint of mystery. Dark woods and plants add to the alluring atmosphere. A tasting menu is available for $115 per person and presents an excellent value. Your meal will start off with a Dungeness Crab Louie and a sweet corn soup. Main courses will be Wild King Salmon, and Filet of Angus Beef. Your meal will come to a delicious end with a tasting of Nobhill’s signature desserts or a Trio of Artisan Cheeses. Individual entrees include Colorado rack of lamb, diver scallops, whole-fried chicken, and bacon-wrapped pork loin. However, the true star of this restaurant is Micheal Mina’s signature Lobster Pot Pie served in a flaky crust with large chunks of lobster and veggies in a creamy sauce. This dish is the reason that many people come to Nobhill, period. For dessert try a tangerine soufflé, honey-glazed peaches, or coconut tapioca served on top of melon cake. At the bar enjoy a classic cocktail like the cable car, starlight, or a north beach negroni.
Everything at Nobhill is perfectly prepared and presented, the wait staff is as exceptional as the food, and you’re sure to leave feeling like you’ve experienced something great.
