195 Broadway
(bet. Vesey and Fulton)
More fancy than casual

When Nobu opened back in 1994, Nobu Matsuhisa’s global take on Japanese cuisine was revolutionary; now it’s everywhere, and not just at Nobu outposts around the world. In 2017, the original location moved from Tribeca to 195 Broadway in FiDi, and what the new space lacks in see-and-be-seen intimacy it makes up for in drama, at least in the magnificent ground floor bar area. (The downstairs dining room could be anywhere.) Even after all these years, the machine that is Nobu runs smoothly, with professional, attentive service and food that can still delight, if not surprise.

  1. They really should renovate the restaurant, it’s not so much the design but it’s seedy, worn out and it’s been that way quite a long time. I live in the neighborhood and it’s one of the reasons I don’t go very often.
