When it comes to cuisine, Houston is a city with a strong appetite for variety. Delectable options abound in every part of town, representing nearly every conceivable culture, and other than Tex-Mex and barbecue, perhaps nothing is quite so ubiquitous as sushi. While we certainly have our fair share of hot spots for creative rolls and delicately sliced sashimi, few have the international prestige of the newly opened Nobu at the Houston Galleria.
Inspired by his time as a restaurateur in Peru, Japanese born chef Nobu Matsuhisa gained global acclaim for infusing masterful sushi creations with traditional Peruvian ingredients. While living and working in L.A., he formed a relationship with Robert DeNiro, and the pair collaborated on the launch of his eponymous Nobu restaurants in over 33 cities worldwide. In keeping with the uncompromising legacy associated with his name, the Houston location delivers the same high-end culinary experience, elegant surroundings, and impeccable service.
For those who enjoy some spicy kick, Nobu may have been the first ever to pair jalapeño with yellowtail, a combination that most sushi locations emulate. Just one bite of this revolutionary treat will make the reason crystal clear. Ultimately, the menu is a masterclass on the art of sushi and Japanese fusion cuisine, including the signature dish of Black Cod in Miso. To put the finishing touch on this wonderful, upscale dining experience, be sure to try one of the expertly-crafted signature cocktails, while you soak in the ambiance for a perfect night on the town.
Nobu is open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. - 10 p.m., Friday from 6 p.m. - 11 p.m., and Weekends from 5 p.m. - 11 p.m.
