Ever “a classic”, Nobu Matsuhisa’s TriBeCa “masterpiece” upholds its “well-deserved reputation” with “heavenly” Japanese-Peruvian fare and “professional” service in an “iconic” setting by David Rockwell; the “high quality” extends to its “more relaxed” next-door annex and a “vast” Midtown branch that “screams 57th Street”, though it “obviously comes at a price.”
Opened in 1994 (or about a century ago in New York restaurant years), Nobu Matsuhisa's TriBeCa sushi temple remains a hot destination for cold fish. Japanese-born Matsuhisa spent years sharpening his knives in kitchens in Tokyo and Lima, and at his own Los Angeles restaurant. But it wasn't until he partnered with Robert De Niro to bring his bold blend of classical Japanese techniques and Peruvian flavors to the Big Apple that a global brand was born. Nobu helped make fusion mainstream, earned a James Beard award for Best New Restaurant and spawned spinoffs everywhere from Las Vegas to Beijing, serving notables such as Barack Obama and Madonna along the way. The chef's yellowtail with jalapeño, rock shrimp tempura with creamy spicy sauce or black cod with miso paired with architect David Rockwell's creative use of natural elements indoors (like his deconstructed white birch tree columns), still impress on dressed-up date nights, special occasions, and business lunches. (Ideally, with someone else picking up the hefty tab.) Book a table well in advance, or for a more spontaneous and wallet-friendly meal, try Matsuhisa's Nobu Next Door.
