Given that I lived in Japan for a long time, I have high standards when it comes to my sushi dinners. However, Nobu probably rises above everyone’s standards. Smaller than the gigantic, and glamourous location midtown, Nobu Next Door can be considered an up-scale neighborhood venue, mostly populated by Tribeca’s residents. The chef delivers authentic Japanese cuisine, with a touch of modernity. Try the black cod, rock shrimp with spicy mayonnaise, tuna tartare, and any of the sushi rolls. Decorated with natural textures, such as trees, wood, and river stones, the space looks cozy, organic, but modern and sophisticated in the same time.
