I’m a big fan of NOBU-57. When I worked nearby, I would go there for client meetings and would frequent there for dinner with friends and family. I had been to Nobu in Tribeca but recently, the restaurant moved down to Wall Street. This was my first time at the location.
Nobu has restaurants located in many major cities around the world. It is owned by Chef Nobu, Robert De Niro, and Meir Teper. The food is traditional Japanese with Peruvian ingredients. In my opinion, it is one of the best restaurants in the world.
Nobu Wall Street
When walking into the restaurant, which is located at 195 Broadway, you appear to be in the cocktail lounge. You will be greeted by the hostess or host, who will take your coats and send you downstairs to enjoy your dining experience.
You will walk down a long staircase and be greeted once again by hosts and hostesses. They will shout out something in Japanese and the kitchen staff will greet you in Japanese.
The restaurant has a similar decor to their old SOHO location, with tree sculptures galore and a huge sushi bar at the end of the room.
