Get Sum More
December 28, 2006


Visions of sugarplums are so three days ago. After our post-holiday chocolate binge, what’s dancing in our heads now has nothing to do with sweets and everything to do with sashimi. In case you haven’t heard, the godfather of sushi—Nobu Matsuhisa—will soon be descending upon Hong Kong and opening the doors to his first Asia venture outside of Japan, NOBU InterContinental Hong Kong.

Get your chopsticks out, your sake glasses ready and let your fingers do the walking. The reservation lines are open for booking. Once you get through, be sure to ask for one of the coveted window tables, with perfect proximity to the harbour. Or, for an unforgettable evening with your entourage, book the mod sea-inspired, private dining room. If the cool, undulating sea urchin ceiling doesn’t impress your crew, the drop-dead views of the skyline should.

Didn’t open our email in time to secure a table? You can still get your cut of the freshest fish in town. Have a cocktail or two at the sleek Nobu Bar Lounge, while waiting for your stool at the sushi bar (our favorite spot in the restaurant) with a full view of the masters in action.

The menu at the newest NOBU will include all of Mr. Matsuhisa’s innovative signature favorites; Fresh Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, Broiled Black Cod with Miso, White Fish Tiradito and Toro Tartar with Caviar, as well as new dishes featuring local ingredients (hairy crab, bok choy, bankers, tai tais!).

Need a little more dish with your fish? We’ve gotten word that the legend himself will be in residence from January 8-12 and 22-26, 2007. Fancy a side of raw celeb with your spider roll? Mr. Matsuhisa’s business partner, screen-icon Robert DeNiro, will be meeting him in Hong Kong for an exclusive restaurant opening party after Chinese New Year. And you can bet Nobu San will be making a list and checking it twice for that night! He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice . . .

Nobu San is coming to town!
