Nobu Review

This outpost of Nobu Matsuhisa's restaurant empire in the Hard Rock Hotel is known for inventive and fresh sushi and hot dishes created with a modern Japanese-Peruvian flair. The sexy if rather noisy room with scorched ash wood treatments and jade-green walls makes a cool space to enjoy Nobu classics like raw white fish tiradito (the Peruvian equivalent of sashimi) with yuzu citrus, lobster in wasabi sauce, or succulent black cod with miso glaze. If you're feeling adventurous, let the sushi chef's whims guide you through a delicious omakase, or tasting menu—just be sure to tell them what you'd like to spend. More than a few diners have ended up with a surprise bill in the hundreds.
