I'm beginning to think Nobu is just another Rao's, where you can't get in unless a regular dies. Except that, when you call Rao's, a person answers and turns down your request. I want to take my husband to Nobu, with a few friends, for his birthday on Monday and I've been calling for two days, every 10 minutes, to no avail. Before 10:00am, you get a message telling you to call at 10:00am and, as of 10:00:01am, the phone is busy. Short of getting in a cab tonight and going down there to actually get in someone's face, I can't figure out how to make a reservation. Is there a trick? Anyone have any advice?
