Nobu 57
Nobu Fifty Seven
The crowds haven’t thinned at Nobu since the place opened 12 years ago, so it only made sense when owner Drew Nieporent introduced this midtown branch. David Rockwell, who designed the original and its sidekick, crafted a spectacular showcase for Nobu Matsuhisa’s famed Latin-tinged sushi: There’s a 10,000-square-foot dining room with banquettes made from Japanese fishing materials and a 12-seat hibachi-and-shabu-shabu station. Best of all, the place seats hundreds of diners, which means you might actually be able to get a reservation.

Nobu 57 lives up to its reputation of being a swanky, fancy, and expensive restaurant. Its dark lighting makes it a romantic spot, but the music makes it a fun place for a group of friends to go too. Expect to spend a lot of money at this place, but if you are a food snob like me and don't mind small portions, you'll be happy as a clam. I went for NYE where they had a special tasting menu of 8 courses and also had a few cocktails, and I had nothing bad to say about anything. The food is incredibly fresh and melts in your mouth. From sashimi in a cilantro sauce to beef that you cook yourself to oysters to noodles, this Asian-fusion place has so many options. Unless you're an incredibly picky eater, you don't leave this place feeling disappointed!

Nobu 57 is one my favorite restaurants in New York.  The oysters are incredible and the wagyu beef is always a huge crowd pleaser.  Well worth the price!
