Matsuhisa

Matsuhisa Review

Freshness and innovation are the hallmarks of this flagship restaurant of Nobu Matsuhisa's empire. The prolific chef-restaurateur had planned on closing it in favor of his newer, more glamorous Nobu up the street, but ultimately bowed to clamoring protests from loyal patrons. The surprisingly modest-looking place draws celebrities and serious sushi buffs alike. Here you can encounter such dishes as the Chilean sea bass with foie gras, fresh scallop sashimi with black garlic sauce and kiwi, or kampachi served with agua de chili. Reflecting his past stint in Peru, Matsuhisa incorporates intriguing Latin ingredients into traditional Japanese cuisine. Daring diners should ask for the omakase, a seven-course chef selected menu for an amazing culinary experience (with a tab to match).
