Nobu Berkeley Street Restaurant Review: The ground-floor bar is a hot-spot in its own right for the glamorous and young; a spiral staircase takes one up to a pretty dining room and a sushi bar. The menu, overseen by Mark Edwards, resembles that of the original Nobu. Innovations come with starters like “New Style” sashimi, which is raw fish with hot oil ranging from salmon to scallops with Wagyu beef given the same treatment. The wood oven provides excitement with dishes as varied as roast whole poussin with jalapeño, ponzu butter and yuzu lemon garlic, and Iberian pork steak. Western ingredients appear in hot dishes as well, with grilled asparagus coming with dried miso, and the signature black cod with miso. All is produced with meltingly good textures and terrific tastes. Lunches come with salad, miso soup and rice, from £17 to £25.50.
