Nobu Restaurants

The Peruvian-Japanese fusion dishes of chef Nobu Matsuhisa have been dazzling the Hollywood set ever since his first restaurant in Beverly Hills in the 80’s. His current count of 40 restaurants over five continents is a reflection of the popularity of his style of cuisine over the past 30 years. Matsuhisa will be fielding executive chef Mark Edwards of Nobu London and Nobu Berkeley ST, and executive chef Phillip Leong of Nobu Kuala Lumpur to showcase three dishes. They include a Chilean Sea Bass with Black Bean Sauce; King Crab Ginger Salsa; and Salmon Tataki Karashisumiso.
