Nobu Next Door
Nobu Next Door, which opened as an extension of the original Nobu, has now taken on a life of its own. Opened in 1998 due to high demand, its menu mirrors the original Nobu and offers Nobu To Go. With its late night dining and music, Nobu Next Door tends to draw a more spirited crowd. The restaurant satisfies those spontaneous diners who need the Nobu fix, but didn't plan ahead, by offering first come, first serve table seating between the hours of 7:00pm and 9:00pm. Nobu Next Door received a three star review from The New York Times. Designed by architect David Rockwell, Nobu Next Door evokes the Japanese seaside: Japanese fishing nets hang from the ceiling and a wall made of nori (Japanese seaweed) blankets the entrance. There is also a huge display of lit sake bottles--the classic accompaniment to Japanese food. The atmosphere buzzes with the same energy and excitement as Nobu yet definitely maintains an identity all its own.
Very pricey meal, but you get what you pay for. The sushi is outstanding and the tempura is amazing, I would definitely go back. The service wasn't that friendly, but whatever, who cares, it was a great time.!
I have eaten Japanese in Japan and it does not compare to this place. Currently I work in Afghanistan and get to fly back to the states twice a year. I purposely set it up to where I have a 10 hour layover so that I can take the subway from JFK just to eat here. The spicy rock shrimp is my favorite. The other reviews seem to complain about the price but compared to other places, the quality and the price don't match. The quality is better than the price! The only thing I would improve if I owned the place is not charge for refills on soft drinks. I've been in the mountains of Afghanistan for the last 4 months and will be revisiting Nobu in August. I hope they are ready for all the sushi I'm going to eat! Do yourself a favor, when in New York, eat at Nobu!
I generally can't eat any japanese food except for cooked sushi rolls like eel and crab. But at Nobu, I ate everything we ordered and it was delicious! My stomach didn't complain once, which meant that it was the good quality stuff! I loved the Kobe beef and their Blacked Cod with Miso sauce. Definitely recommend it! It's worth the 2 month wait!
