    If you want to transport back to the early 2000s and cozy up to the table next to you, try the yellowtail with jalapeño, crispy rice with spicy tuna, black miso cod, and creamy spicy crab. It works.

    Restaurant week ($38): Rock shrimp tempura, assorted sushi, and tiramisu. All great, but you may want to dip under the fish on your sushi and remove some of the wasabi. It can be awfully harsh.

    Just launched brunch. Many of the dishes are Japanese riffs on American brunch classics. Options include "scrambled egg donburi," blueberry and yuzu soba pancakes, lobster with soba and poached eggs.

    Excellent service, tasty dishes. We focused on Nobu’s classics: miso black cod, yellowtail sashimi, rock shrimp. Great for a birthday dinner 🥂

    For brunch, consider the excellent Breakfast Tacos. Beef inside, quail egg on top. Delicious! If only the portions were larger - I need another entree now.... The cocktails are just superb.

    Went with chef choice. Favs are blue fin toro w/ caviar, yellowtail w/ jalapeño, and washu beef, but everything is pretty freakin amazing!

    Get the salmon new style, jalapeno yellowtail, fluke tiradito style. Also get the black cod in butter lettuce wraps. Cheaper and better than the regular black cod

    Attentiveness. The food is excellent. From the appetisers to the desserts, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The cappuccino was velvety smooth and delicious.

    Otherwise known as the cafeteria of media! I know this menu like the back of my hand. 🍣

    More or less enjoyed everything, particularly the black miso cod and the yellowtail jalapeño dish, but it’s popular with expense accounts for a reason. More about the vibes than the food.

    Chicken in chicken and waffles was awesome. So was the Crispy Rice "Bagel" and the breakfast tacos, though personally I think you can skip the Lobster and grits!

    You can't really go wrong with anything on the menu. Pricy but so good! Also don't need reservations and easier to access than regular Nobu. Less likely to see a celebrity though

    Came here for Valentine’s Day (pre fix menu). Sushi and sashimi was amazing but wasn’t a fan of the fried fish balls. Super pricey for fish that wasn’t the best I’ve had in the city.

    We enjoyed the Lobster tempura with Ponzu sauce. Next time we will try it with creamy sauce.

    3 tips in 1: change up the rock shrimp by getting it with the honey truffle aioli (off menu). Don't be shy about getting 1/2 orders. And get a mojito with yuzu and shiso instead of lime and mint.

    Get the sauteed tofu dish with jalapeno sauce (off the menu), grilled vegetable skewers with the red chili marinade, the vegetable sushi and the bento box dessert. Yum!

    I recommend the omakase which allows the chef to choose the dishes for you. Ask for the black cod cooked in miso as it is one of Nobu's signature dishes.

    Great food. Iffy service. Had to wait 30 mins for a reserved table for 2. Since the heat was on blast I waited outside on the steps, only to be lectured by the manager. Now that's just wack...
