Dinner at Nobu
On Friday night The Boyf and I went to the One & Only Hotel for dinner at Nobu....
The big sushi bar and pretty lights
On entering the restaurant, we were greeted with an "Irasshaimase!" (aka Welcome) by all the staff and led to our comfy booth-like table. The first thing I noticed about the venue was the ultra high ceiling, ambient lighting and how big the restaurant was. Though the restaurant did not have an intimate setting, it still had a very relaxed and comfortable feel about it.
On the recommendation of our friendly waitress, Noxy, we started out with a little cherry blossom infused sake (which smelt great but didn't have much of a taste). Then we moved onto sampling two of the menus off the winter specials menu (there are three different menus to choose from and all contain 5 courses) . Every course was interesting, tasty and beautifully presented.
Above is just some of the food we ate - from top left, clockwise: New style sashimi (tuna),
Nobu Sushi (yellowtail), Beef toban yakii, and a very yummy white fish dish with edible fish bones.
After dinner, we enjoyed dessert and then I discovered an awesome, pink cocktail called the 'Fizzy Shu' (if you like citrus drinks, I highly recommend you try it sometime)
