Nobu - Fine Dining At It's Best!
Fine dining at it's best! Went here for a special dinner wanting to impress interstate visitors. Just see the bank manager before you go to Nobu... Peruvian and Japanese fusion really works! We know there are other Nobu establishments elsewhere in the world. Was taken by the one in Dubai – but happy there’s one here in Melbourne! Robert De Niro connections impressive... Looked to see if he was around or at least Al Pacino... Although many celebs are to be seen here...
So you walk down the stairs into super chicdom… And you are met by a superchic waiter… Takes a few minutes to work out the menu... don't let fusion become "confusion"! Amid the general noise in the place you need to listen very carefully to your waiter! Love the ambience and whole backlit thing going on... Mood lighting impressed our interstate guests – super chic.
Loved the signature black cod miso… Cod that has been prepared for days marinated and glazed with miso. Tender amazing dish! The wagyu rib eye with red pepper miso, ponzuy and anticucho sauces. We happily shared this between the two couples and loved it!
Then for dessert the amazing bento box action with the gold leaf... Hot chocolate fondant! With the combination of yummy green tea icecream!!! Yes!!! The flavours work incredibly together with the sweetness of the fondue and the balancing green tea which is not sweet. Had to take a photo… Presentation second to none... In a great precinct at Crown... Easy parking in Crown complex... We enjoyed perfect food and company in a sensational restaurant…
