Hi There - Moved from the Pacific NW about 16 months ago and have promised GF I would take her to Nobu Malibu at some point while we are living here. We went to the one in Las Vegas and loved it. Has anyone been to the one in Malibu recently and would you care to comment on the omakase there? In looking at their menu online it looks like they have $80/$100/$120 options. I think we would opt for the $100, but any input is helpful in deciding.
Also, we have never done omakase... been meaning to for a very long time, but maybe we get a bit intimidated when we get to a restaurant. Do you need to call ahead and let them know? Do you just inform the host/hostess? Are some days better than others? Times? I assume it's pronounced "oh-ma-ka-say" and if I am wrong please correct me!
Does this particular restaurant offer both hot and cold food with their omakase?
Now I know a lot of people are going to say we should go elsewhere (Kiriko, Sushi-Zo, etc). I just want to say that her heart is set on going to Nobu so unless there is a MAJOR reason not to go just assume we will be heading there.... just wanted to throw that out there from the onset.
As always, thanks for your help in advance!
