Executive Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has replicated the decor and menu of his Manhattan Nobu in this slick restaurant with bamboo pillars, a seaweed wall, and birch trees. Dishes might include spicy Kumamoto oyster with Nobu sauce, monkfish pâté with caviar, rock shrimp tempura, and Maine lobster with wasabi-pepper sauce. The menu comprises small or moderate-size plates, making Nobu perfect for sharing, but an easy place to drop a wad of cash (as all those artful food presentations
add up). If you're feeling brave (and flush), opt for the Omakase multicourse tasting menu and let the chef make the decisions for you.
