We had our first meal at Nobu last night as our Valentine's celebration, and there aren't enough superlatives in this language to describe the experience. If you hate Japanese food, they will convert you, and if you love Japanese food, they will spoil you for any place else. We decided on the omakase menu (tasting) to celebrate our Big Night and were overwhelmed by the selection and quality. It got to be a joke; every dish was greeted by eyes rolling and groans of "this is SOOOOOOO good!"
The place is also beautiful, with a warmth and coziness that you don't often find in this type of decor. The staff was pleasant and attentive, and we just can't wait to get back there (is tonight too soon?)
