“Taste of Tokyo”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

As soon as we entered the restaurant smell of fried, not very pleasant , food overwhelmed us. Table are squeezed together to fit as many diners as possible. The waiter was very attentive, the sakitini was excellent, shrimp tempura, butter lettuce wrap black cod were heavenly. As soon as I had the first bite from my sushi all the bad smell disappeared and I felt like I was in Tokyo.

Having been to Nobu previously and thoroughly enjoyed a most memorable (and very expensive) tasting menu, I was eager to try Nobu Next Door during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious, the service wonderful. But even after 3 courses, we left hungry. On the way home in the cab, my husband actually wanted to grab some pizza! (I successfully discouraged him). But not too long after, we both ate turkey sandwiches at home. With sake, our bill for 2 restaurant week meals exceeded $150. Which, in conclusion, left quite a bad taste.

“Less snobish than the NOBU 2 doors left”
Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

As all restaurants of Nobu Matsushita - this one is very good concerning cuisine, its' freshness, innovations, etc.
A bit overpriced but uf you are NOBU fun - it's the MUST!
Pity they do not serve unfiltered sake in less than 500ml - too much!
Black cod - the dish you can not miss!

“Excellent Meal”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

I love Nobu, but Nobu Next Door is just as good and in my mind much less pretentious. Food is excellent and you must not miss the yellowtail with jalapeño.
