This hallowed establishment still ranks among the 40 top restaurants in town, but not by much. The great fusion chef Nobu Matsuhisa has done enough innovating to span several culinary lifetimes, and, more than most things cooked up during the nineties, his miso-marinated black cod, rock shrimp with spicy mayonnaise, and tuna tartare with a bed of crushed avocado all have stood the test of time. But the sushi has never been great, and with eighteen Nobu outlets now scattered around the globe, it’s becoming clear that franchising has its costs.Recommended Dishes
