Sushi You Can Be Sure Of

Bar at Nobu 57

Some people are overly concerned with job security. With me, it's all about restaurant security. I want to know, before I go into a restaurant, that I am going to be wowed by the decor, treated well by the wait staff and of course, be happily satiated by the food. And walking into Nobu 57, I know I will get all three. After all, this is another Nobu Matsuhisa restaurant we are talking about, the man who has made a global name for himself by opening his first Nobu restaurant in TriBeCa, serving inspiring, creative Japanese fare. The David Rockwell-designed Midtown space is a bilevel palace with a chic, nautical feel, offering such details as abalone shell chandeliers, sliced bamboo stalks in terrazzo tiles and soft Japaenese quilt fabric for the decor. Burnished wood floors and soft lighting finish off the warm environs, so necessary when dining. And by dining, I mean a diverse menu where you can pick your many pleasures, whether they be cold dishes (bigeye and bluefin toro tartar with caviar; yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño; lobster ceviche and lobster shiitake salad with spicy lemon dressing), hot dishes (abalone with light garlic sauce; halibut cheeeks with wasabi pepper sauce; black cod with miso), or one of the classic sushi, sashimi or teriyaki dinners.

After dinner enjoy one more sake at the spacious bar, and toast to another Nobu Matsuhisa meal, done to perfection.
