Japanese celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa visits Sydney’s Nobu restaurant for the first time
It’s hard to name a more famous and globally recognized Japanese restaurant brand than Nobu. Now the name behind it, chef Nobu Matsuhisa, is visiting his Sydney restaurant for the first time, and he’ll be hosting a cocktail party.
The event will take place this Friday and will feature a number of Nobu’s signature dishes, with food stations including a sushi and sashimi bar, canapes and drinks. Guests will have the chance to meet Matsuhisa, who will be signing copies of her cookbook. Tickets also cover drinks, including cocktails, sake, and champagne.
Best known for marrying Peruvian flavors with Japanese cuisine, Nobu has grown into a global powerhouse, with more than 59 restaurants around the world. The original Nobu location in Tribeca, New York established itself as a hangout for Manhattan’s wealthy and glamorous. It is owned by Matsuhisa alongside Hollywood superstar Robert De Niro, film producer Meir Teper (From dusk till dawn, What eats Gilbert Raisin) and Crown Resorts.
Sydney’s Nobu opened in 2020 on level two of the Crown Towers, the third Nobu in Australia following openings in Melbourne and Perth. Chef Nobu will also host events at these restaurants. We’re told he will also use the time to work closely with Nobu’s head chefs – including Harold Hurtada in Sydney – as well as other Nobu employees.
The Nobu Sydney Cocktail takes place on Friday, September 16, and tickets are $400. You can book online.
