Nobu makes his Atlantic City debut
In 2013, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas opened the first Nobu Hotel, inspired by the New York restaurant founded by chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert DeNiro and Meir Teper. There are now 13 hotels in the Nobu universe, and the latest set will open in Caesars Atlantic City in early 2023. As a foretaste of things to come, the hotel opened a Nobu restaurant in October. “Nobu Atlantic City is the only location in the Northeast with an ocean view,” chef Matsuhisa told TBEN of his new restaurant. He adds that the location also allows the restaurant to “include some of the seasonal fish from New Jersey waters on our menu, such as the Big Eye tuna found in September, fluke in the summer, and a local Tilefish or Amadai which we serve with a savory black bean miso sauce.”

“The world is not enough.”
From May 2023, a new system called the EES (entry and exit system) will come into effect in Europe and will change the process for entering the Schengen zone in two major ways:
- In addition to passports, the new system will take biometric data (fingerprints and facial images) and store it for future use — much in the same way the US currently does.
- Instead of passport stamps, the system automatically registers exactly when someone has entered the country, so it automatically knows whether they have been welcome for longer.
Later next year, the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) will require visitors from outside Europe to apply for a visa waiver before arriving in a Schengen area.
