Nugget Casino Resort Begins Noodle Hut Restaurant
and VIP Lounge Renovations

Nugget Casino Resort Begins Noodle Hut Restaurant and VIP Lounge Renovations


Reno/Sparks, Nevada – The Nugget Casino Resort launched new renovations to its popular Noodle Hut
Restaurant and is clearing space for a brand new large limit slot and VIP Lounge area. The latest projects are
part of a long-term multimillion dollar investment plan of continuing improvements initiated by the Nugget’s
new ownership in 2014.


Both renovations are expected to open by early to mid July. The upgraded Noodle Hut will include its familiar
signature menu items plus a large number of additional selections highlighted by fresh sushi. The restaurant
preparation and dining areas will be expanded to accommodate demand. “Given the popularity of the
Noodle Hut, it was a difficult decision to close it during renovations,” said Nugget President and CEO Carlton
Geer, “but I assure you, the final product will be well worth the wait. This renovation is an upgrade that
expands the menu to incorporate sushi, roasted duck, Chinese barbecue pork and more noodle dishes among
other popular Asian foods. ”


Concurrent with the Noodle Hut project, construction crews will be working on a brand new large limit slot
and VIP Lounge area. The new area will be located across from the Advantage Rewards player’s club booth
and next to the Keno lounge on the main casino floor.


“The Nugget has lagged the market in providing a quiet lounge environment for casino players to relax, chat
with friends and generally decompress,” said Geer. “This new lounge will allow us to serve our casino guests
in the manner they deserve.


The new lounge will be accompanied by the addition of a new VIP slots area that will feature the latest
games. Additionally, the entire Table Games area will be enhanced with new carpeting, a more convenient
layout and other general upgrades to the casino floor.”


Nevada based Penta Construction is the contractor with design work performed by the Cuningham Group.
Both Penta and Cuningham have been involved in all of the recent renovation & construction projects at the
Nugget.
