Foodie Friday: Nobu

Irasshaimase!  If you are ever in the mood for sushi, (Christine (designer), Lauren (foodieLauren) , Chris (hubby) , and I are huge sushi fans)  Nobu is a great place to go to! The interior design and hip ambiance is a wonderful bonus…an Los Angeles romantic restaurant.

Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, executive chef and owner, opened his first Nobu restaurant in New York, with the help of fellow co founder, Robert Di Nero, Principal Meir Teper, and Managing Partner Drew Nieporent. Nobuyuki, simply known as Nobu, learned his inventive styles from Japan, Peru and Argentina. “Nobu currently has 32 restaurants in 28 different cities around the world, spanning across five continents.” Wow.

Nobu in West Hollywood was designed by  architect David Rockwell in the famed L’Orangerie space on La Cienega Boulevard in West Hollywood. This restaurant has three different rooms each providing you with a different feel and ambience.

 As you walk in, you get introduced to the restaurant by this magnificent statement door.VonDerAheInteriors_NOBUBLOG

Right before we enter the main dining area we pass by a elegant atrium. This room is perfect for any private event, the curtains may be drawn, allowing a private ambience.
