Nobu London Restaurant Review

: Nobu is tucked away on the first floor of the Metropolitan, but still pulls the crowds, though less urgently than before. The globe-trotting Japanese-American head chef Nobu Matsuhisa has brought his genius to London. Signature dishes include the black cod with miso; the new-style sashimi, which --- atypically --- incorporates garnishes, dressings and marinades; and uniquely Nobu fusion dishes such as anti-cucho Peruvian-style spicy chicken skewer (anti-cucho being the Peruvian equivalent of yakitori) --- marinated meat grilled on a stick. It's best, though, to order the chef's selection, which gives you a tour of the Nobu repertoire. Even if you know Japanese food, you'll never have had dishes like this before --- except, perhaps, at one of the Nobu branches around the world, including Nobu Berkeley Street.
