Nobu - London

  • m

I was just wondering if there is a Nobu in London. And if so is it connected to the one in Manhattan, NY.

    There is. It is in the Metropolitan Hotel in Park Lane. It is part of the same group as Nobu in NY and I found both to be profoundly disappointing.

    the last time I went there my date who has an allergy to salmon and tuna ( good choice on my part huh? but she didn't warn me ) had a siezure because the chef had used the knife from preparing tuna on her dishes despite specific instructions.

    Although I rank Schraeger places on my most hated list, the best sushi I have had in London recently was at the Sea Bar in The St Martin's Lane Hotel. It was well on the whole a more delicate affair than Nobu's offerings.

    BTW I have just been invited to a party at Nobu next week so I will report back

    hope this helps
