Matsuhisa Restaurant Review

: After experiencing success in Vail and Aspen, renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa is poised to do the same in Denver with his third Colorado-based Matsuhisa, his eponymous Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. Located in tony Cherry Creek North, on the street level of a luxury apartment building, Matsuhisa is all polish, glamor and glitz. Spacious curved booths, banquettes and tables are flanked by a backdrop of reclaimed teak, stone and tile, while the sushi bar, which seats 14, gives raw fish fans a firsthand look into the mastery of slicing and dicing. The menu, a romp of sushi, sashimi, tempura, salads and fusion-forward cold and hot dishes that range from seafood ceviche and octopus carpaccio to Miyazaki Wagyu beef and sea bass with black truffles, is supplemented by a roster of cocktails, saké and beer and an exhilarating wine catalogue that spans pages and pages. Desserts are a bit of an afterthought, but the coconut-and-banana spring roll is a popular choice among those with a sugar obsession.
