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.
