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.

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

We went for lunch on Sunday. They had a brunch menu with interesting takes on common American brunch ingredients, but we stuck with their every day menu. The sashimi was perhaps the highest quality I've had - delicious big eye tuna. Even the salmon, which I normally find the least interesting, was excellent. They obviously take great care with their... More

My husband and I were simply blown away by their food! Their famous dish black cod miso certainly lived up to the expectations and hype! We also ordered a whole mix of dishes based on the server's recommendations and they were all very tasty!

Nobu was awesome. Every dish we ordered was the best dish we had. The Fluke Sashimi with dried miso is a must. The Yellow sashimi with jalapeño - wow. It only kept getting better and better.
