Description: 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.

My boyfriend and i went to this restaurant because we didn't manage to get a table in Nobu but i must say we couldn't have had a better evening. Nice location, friendly and helpful staff and extraordinary good food. We like to eat out and enjoy good food but we never made such a fantastic experience in japanese food. You... More

A bit dark at first but food quality is fine, excellent as well as service. To appreciate it you must understand the Japanese "nouvelle cuisine" and don't expect larger portions! I'd recommend it for an occasion and if you want to splash and you are not too worried about your wallet then try "Nobu" which is the upmarket version.... :)

The food is really excellent. Like in all Nobus. But other Nobus have a nicer furniture and atmosphere (Positive effect: this branch is typically easier to get in short-term)

The menu is not your typical Nobu menu. The main part was an American Brunch type menu served saturdays and sundays. Interesting and unexpected.

My partner and I enjoyed a lovely meal at this excellent restaurant. We booked a table in advance and took advantage of the Restaurant Week menu, which is fantastic value at 38 dollars for 3 courses. The restaurant is stylish and the service and staff very good. I had Sushmini salad to start, followed by Beef in a teriyaki sauce... More

Still a good place (even though was easyer and better) with tremendous quality food. Service is ok. Very expensive and small portions.

One of the best Japanese restaurant I tried in my life. Nice place, nice location, nice service and great food. I tried a Grilled Salmon with rice. Excellent. I hope to come back in New York to still try this restaurant.

My first date with my wife was at this restuarant back in 2003. Came back recently with my cousin from out of town. Still delicious. New Style Sashimi, Rock Shrimp Tempura in Creamy Spicy Sauce and Eggplant with Miso were good. The Creamy Spicy Crab seemed different and was less tasty than I remembered.

I have been to Nobu but never "next door". Went with another couple on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately. Food was really good and a definite notch and a half above your typical Japanese restaurant. Saki was outstanding. Would go again and again.

I could not get reservations at Nobu so I ended up taking colleagues to Nobu Next Door which was perfect. They were visiting from Chicago. I got my normal the black cod while they selected appetizers and cocktails. I recall that we had edamame and another appetizer. I didn't take photos since it was a work meeting. Everything was wonderful,... More
