Nobu

Nobu is one of the most well-known and highly-regarded restaurant chains in the whole world, having made its name with its innovative take on Japanese cuisine.

The Nobu empire began 21 years ago in New York, when celebrity actor Robert De Niro joined forces with chef Nobu Matsuhisa, a man known for reinventing Japanese food. From that time on, Nobu's signature dishes have been earning acclaim from Hollywood stars and celebrities around the globe.

Other well-known restauranteurs had tmade several unsuccessful attempts to bring a Nobu franchise to Moscow, but it was only the Agalarov family that was able to convince the great chef that the quality of food and the level of service at the new restaurant could meet the exceptionally high standards of the franchise. In April 2009, Nobu Moscow opened its doors to the capital, the result of a partnership between Nobu Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, Meir Teper and Aras and Emin Agalarov.
In 2015, a second Nobu has opened in the new retail-entertainment complex, VEGAS Crocus City.

The new Nobu Crocus City comprises two floors, with a total area of 1,200 square meters, and three entrances: one from the street, one from Crocus City Mall, and one from VEGAS Crocus City. The first floor is outfitted with a bar and lounge zone. Its central dining area has seating for 70, as well as a sushi bar. Upstairs, the second floor boasts a panoramic view, a separate VIP room and a large banquet hall capable of seating up to 250 guests. 

The kitchen is headed up by French chef Damien Duviau and his international team: Japanese sushi chef Sohta Fujimori and pastry chef Stewart Bell, who honed his skills developing menus together with Asia’s top dessert chef, Janice Wong (2am:dessertbar, Singapore) and working at the Michelin-starred restaurant Ossiano in Dubai. Here he will debut a new selection of sumptuous sweets informed by advances in molecular gastronomy. 

The menu for the second restaurant will echo the first by upholding the gastronomic philosophy of the founder of this international chain, Nobu Matsuhisa, who infused his take on Japanese cuisine with accents from South American culinary traditions, using only the highest quality produce, the finest spices, and natural ingredients. As an additional flourish, dishes from the menu at Nobu Crocus City will be prepared to perfection in a large, wood-burning oven on the first floor, brought especially from Australia.
