I live in Austin, home of the outstanding Uchi. I lived in LA for 10 years prior, so when I needed to take a group of clients to dinner last week in Dallas and heard Nobu had a place there, I figured it would be great. I was wrong. The service was terrible, the food was good but not incredible, and the ambience (pulsing club music???) was distracting.
I'm going back in a few weeks and want to find a place with great sushi prepared and served with soul (as opposed to the assembly line character of Nobu's omakase menu).
