Walk into Nobu on Berkeley St, and you walk into the playground of the celebs. Named after celebrity chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, it’s famous for its fusion cuisine blending traditional Japanese dishes with South American (Peruvian) ingredients. Oh and lots of celebs.
I went there on a Friday night and can say I saw absolutely no celebs, not even a Z lister in sight. Four days later, my friend went on a Tuesday night and he dined with George Clooney, Matt Damon and Girls Aloud.
The food was amazing and especially the signature dish of Black Cod in Miso. It’s expensive, but worth it, do it at least once.
Tip: Reserve 3 months in advance and on a weekday as that seems to be when the celebs come out!
