LA Weekly's Description

Nobu Matsuhisa is the most influential Japanese chef in the United States, the father of a strange, original cuisine equally rooted in the sushi kitchen, the informal izakaya, and the seafood preparations of cosmopolitan Lima. Without him, half the new restaurants in Los Angeles and New York might still be selling California rolls and salmon-skin salad. But there is a steep learning curve to the restaurant Matsuhisa, with hundreds of dishes on the menu, and waiters who are perfectly happy to serve nonregulars the same omakase meal that the kitchen has been pumping out for almost 20 years.. The West Hollywood Nobu changes all of that. The old l'Orangerie space is throbbing once again, with electronica bouncing off the walls and black BMWs clogging La Cienega. Where the dining room of l'Orangerie resembled a grand bank lobby, Nobu, designed by David Rockwell - whose imprint on the Tribeca Nobu pretty much launched a four-continent career - looks carved out of a vault. The streamlined menu resembles that of Nobu Next
Door in New York, including things like steamed Chilean sea bass and even
the occasional steak. If you are hungry for the now-classic hamachi with jalapeño or toro tartare with caviar, you can be assured of finding them here. And there's roasted banana with soy caramel for dessert.

    The food is really good, but it's more the atmosphere for me.

    This is a sushi standard. Everywhere I go around the country there's always a Nobu where I can count on good sushi. The atmosphere always has a pre-party vibe to it. I have a lot of dinners here before I have to go to a club and start the rest of my night.

    Dine among the stars (think Robert DeNiro, not Alpha Centuri) at this famous eatery that brings sexiness to sushi. It's very pricey - bring your no-limit credit card - but the food is well worth it.

    Nobu's Los Angeles location opened in Spring 2008. It has been been listed among the best sushi restaurants in the city by Bon Appetite and won a Diners' Choice award in 2009.

    “I like restaurants with a great atmosphere. The Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel and Nobu are my favorite places to eat in LA – and the house specialties are always the way to go.”-TH
