Bistro Bows In

Bruce Schoenfeld
From the Print Edition:
Rudy Giuliani, Nov/Dec 01

(continued from page 2)

Mina is jazzed now. This restaurant, which has existed in his mind for almost a decade, is on the verge of becoming reality. The next day, he can't stay away. He's in the kitchen by 10 o'clock. In the lull before the opening, he spends a moment getting perspective. "What I like best about it is its flexibility," he says. "You can have a salad and just a salad, or a tasting menu." In that sense, Nob Hill is everything that Charlie Trotter wasn't.

At 5:30 the doors open. The man in the bow tie and the woman in heels are first to arrive. They have no reservations, but they're intrigued by the dramatic design. They get a table for two against the long side wall. The wait is over. Now the work has begun.


Nob Hill

MGM Grand, Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd, 702/693-7223
