Palms Casino Resort Introduces Send Noodles, An All-New Asian-Inspired Concept Opening March 8


As part of the ongoing $620 million property-wide renovation, Palms Casino Resort will soon unveil Send NOODLES an Asian-inspired concept set to open March 8, 2018. The restaurant will join the latest culinary additions Lucky Penny Café and A.Y.C.E. Buffet on the casino floor and will showcase an authentic and imaginative Asian fusion menu, in an intimate, art-infused environment.


The name Send NOODLES, a play on the colloquialism “send it” or “just saying yes” to something, will also reflect the service in the restaurant in which dishes will be sent out in the order they are ready. Just send it! The restaurant features a robust menu with influences from Mandarin, Cantonese, Szechuan, Japanese, Korean and Thai cuisines as well as creative takes on American and Italian classics using Asian ingredients. Led by Executive Chef Francis Mo, the restaurant will serve vibrant dishes in a lively setting. Chef Mo has traveled the world and proudly brings to task over 40 years of experience in the culinary industry. From China to Japan, Spain to Germany, Mo found his way to the states in 1988 and 17 years later arrived in Las Vegas. He has worked across various high-profile kitchens in the city including Tao, Rice & Co, Andrea’s and Yellowtail.


Some of Chef Mo’s standout menu items include:


  • Crispy Chicken Bao with cucumber, daikon, gochujang, jalapeño and cilantro.
  • Tempura Green Beans with spicy aioli, unagi sauce, togarashi and toasted almonds.
  • Udon Carbonara a clever take on the classic Italian dish served with udon noodles, peas, cha shu pork, parmesan, and furikake.
  • Ramen Mac-N-Cheese ramen noodles, melted cheddar, smoked gouda, cream cheese and spicy rice cracker.
  • Dan Dan Mein with ground pork, tofu, cucumber, shiitake mushroom and peanuts.
  • Chinese BBQ Noodle Soup with Cantonese thin noodle, choy sum, scallions – choice of BBQ pork, spare ribs or roasted duck.
  • Bang Bang Broccoli with crispy, buttermilk-fried broccoli, TRUFF aioli, panko and scallions.
  • Nutella Honey Toast with vanilla and chocolate ice cream, honey, toast, Nutella sauce, and strawberries.


Complementing the allure of its cuisine, guests are immediately drawn into the space by two immersive art murals painted by famed Taiwanese-American artist James Jean. The murals titled “Alimental Thread” were created by using acrylic paint and acrylic gouache (an opaque acrylic matte finish paint) and took the artist over 60 hours to complete. James Jean is an award-winning illustrator and painter; he is known as the cover artist for various books published by DC Comics, as well as for his work for films such as “The Shape of Water” and other brands including Prada, ESPN and Atlantic Records.


Located just off the casino floor next to the A.Y.C.E buffet, Send NOODLES will feature seating for 34 guests in the dining space and limited seating at the bar for an interactive culinary experience. Send Noodles will be open daily for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. For more information on Send NOODLES, please visit

Towards the end of dinner, Big Baby Davis asked the TAO lounge DJ to play his song “Big Baby Gon’ Turn It Up” which is currently available on iTunes. As the song played throughout the restaurant, Big Baby ripped open the curtains in the private dining room and gave guests in the restaurant an impromptu concert, lip-synching to his own song and dancing with his teammates. The restaurant diners loved it and danced along with him as he entertained the crowd.

That evening, Khloe celebrated her 30th birthday at TAO.

The crowd of fans that had gathered around the red carpet hours prior to Khloe’s arrival sang her “Happy Birthday” and she graciously made her way over to them to pose for several photos. Once inside the restaurant, R&B crooner Miguel and girlfriend Nazanin Mandi joined the group. Everyone enjoyed several signature dishes and an array of sushi from the Asian kitchen.


After dinner, the entire crew headed upstairs to TAO Nightclub and took over a VIP table on the dance floor. As they arrived, cell phones flew into the air to take photos and the crowd erupted with cheers. Shortly after, Khloe was surprised in true Vegas fashion with a four-tier custom cake presented by two showgirls and an Elvis impersonator as confetti rained down. DJ Eric D-Lux dropped several of French Montana’s hits and Khloe sang along as partygoers went wild. Khloe then grabbed the mic to say hi to the crowd of excited fans and thank them for celebrating with her. Ciroc provided custom “Khloe 30” t-shirts which the star playfully posed for photos with her friends in. The star danced to hip hop anthems and kept her celebration going late into the night.

The venue will transform into The Snoopadelic Cabaret, a roaring twenties themed night brought to life by the one and only Snoop Dogg as the Master of Ceremonies. Snoop Dogg, whose resume as DJ Snoopadelic has become infamous in the party industry, will headline each night with a special curated DJ set, along with a live performance of some hit songs. Throughout the night, guests will be treated to exclusive specialty acts and dance performances.  This unique affair will mark the first residency for a hip hop artist in Las Vegas designed around an audio, visual and performance production that will create the all-encompassing guest experience that is the hallmark of TAO Group.

“I’m excited to partner with the TAO team for these special classy events,” said Snoop Dogg.  “This summer is going to be epic and I can’t wait to give Vegas that real Snoopadelic Cabaret vibe.”

Snoop Dogg will take partygoers through a night filled with discovery moments and period-influenced entertainment, backed by custom costumes, décor and distinct moments fueled by specialty cocktails of the era. Guests are encouraged to dress classy for the night and social media promotions and contests will give them the unique opportunity to become a part of the cabaret. Each night will include an exclusive password promoted on TAO’s social media, @TAOLasVegas, for limited access to The Snoopadelic Cabaret through a secret back door entry during the night.

The residency will debut on Saturday, May 3, after the Mayweather – Maidana fight, with the second event roaring into TAO on Sunday, May 25. The Snoopadelic Cabaret will have additional dates that will be announced throughout the summer and fall seasons.

Photos: 200+ Dogs Take Over Marquee For Barquee Charity Event

On Thursday, October 10, TAO Group Cares (the charitable arm of TAO Group, including TAO/LAVO/Marquee) hosted its second annual BarQuee event at Marquee Dayclub. 100% of the door proceeds from the event directly supported The Animal Foundation, a non-profit organization that operates Nevada’s largest open-admission animal shelter and pet adoption center. The line wrapped around the entrance with more than 400 guests attending the dogs-night-out, including over 200 four-legged companions. After posing for photos on the poly-turf “green carpet,” owners sipped on specialty cocktails poolside, while mingling and visiting vendor booths. On the same note, those loveable pets didn’t miss out on drinking and socializing either, as Bowser Beer donated their dog friendly, non-alcoholic beer for a tasty dog libation. Surrounding Marquee’s pool was a slew of pet-friendly businesses contributing to the event including Doggy Luxe, a high-end dog collar company, Doggie District, a popular local pet daycare, Earth Rated, makers of environmentally-friendly waste bags, and more. Due to the overwhelming success, BarQuee was extended an extra hour.
