All hotels feature a Nobu restaurant, created by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Nobu Restaurants are known for new-style Japanese cuisine, sleek interior design and presentation.
Nobu menus are influenced by Chef Matsuhisa’s classical training as a sushi chef in Tokyo and his experience in opening a Japanese restaurant in Lima, Peru. Much of Nobu’s cuisine incorporates Peruvian ingredients into Japanese dishes.
