Nobu New York
Nobu New York, the flagship restaurant of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, has been a pioneer for Japanese cuisine since its opening in 1994. Nobu partnered with restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro to bring his modern Japanese to Tribeca. Nobu draws upon his classical training at sushi bars in Tokyo and his life abroad in Peru, Argentina, and around the world to create a whole new trend in Japanese cuisine. The resulting dishes, including Yellowtail with Jalapeno, Tiradito Nobu Style, Lobster with Wasabi Pepper Sauce, and Black Cod with Miso, make Nobu the innovator of new style Japanese food. The restaurant received three stars from the New York Times and a Michelin star. Nobu New York's design by architect David Rockwell evokes the beauty of the Japanese countryside with its natural textures, birch trees, wood floors and a wall made of river stones. Energy and excitement pulse through the room, creating a surreal effect.
If you can get in, this is an amazing place for sushi. It is very expensive but you will not find anything better in the city (or the world?). I was there a few years ago an dthe amaebi lightly serared by the hot olive oil drizzled on top stands out as the best sushi I have ever had.
I'm a frequent patron of Nobu because the food is always delicious and the service superb. It is a little pricey, but as long as we all remember we're worth it- Nobu is an amazing experience. I especially like sitting in the back, your privacy is always guarnteed.
Although the competition has gotten stiffer, Nobu is still the place to go for an amazing Japanese gastronomic experience. The chef's tasting menu, although pricey ($120, $100 or $80 version) is the draw. I was treated to Nobu for my last birthday and consider my meal (the $100 tasting menu) to be among the most memorable of my life.
Sushi places are so pervasive that it takes a lot to stand out. The food at Nobu is top rate - the spider rolls are superb - as is the service. Taking that in combination with its unique ambience - the size and shape of the restuarant in particular - make Nobu a definitely memorable place.
I Nobu is a Japanese resturant yes there is some sushi but the also have Kobe steak and more cooked dishes than sushi. This is the place to go to see Celebrities last time I was there I saw some of the NY Yankees. Donald Trump also is seen at the upscale resturant every once and awhile. The food is great the Koi pond with the giant budda is amazing. The cost is a lil prices but you will not soon forget the night at Nobu.
