Nobu London


Nobu, probably the world’s most famous Japanese restaurant chain, has proved a lure to London celebrities, with the likes of Kate Moss, Brad Pitt and Elton John having been snapped here. The branch at London’s Metropolitan Hotel, opened in 1997, was the first European venture of Japanese sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa, who launched it in collaboration with Hollywood actor Robert De Niro. Despite its fame and prestigious standing on the restaurant scene, the hangout lost its Michelin star in September 2014, as did its sister branch in Berkeley Street. That said, its famous Black Cod with Miso – which, at £42, is typically pricy – is not to be missed.
