Nobu Matsuhisa Celebrates 5 Years in Dallas

I’m a big fan of Nobu-Dallas and the talents of Executive Chef Matt Raso, and Head Sushi Chef Mitsuhiro Eguchi. (See my pics from an omakase meal last year here. I have a couple other Nobu omakase meals to post – so stay tuned.) Well, it’s been five years and they are still here… let’s hope we can keep it that way!

A bunch of us hardcore fans got invited to a 5th Anniversary bash last Friday hosted by Nobu himself.

^ While waiting for the lovely “FW”, I enjoyed a masu of Nobu’s Hokusetsu Daiginjyo original “Black Label” sake in the bar. Upon entering the party, we indulged in many a lychee martini.

^ Some Shrimp action; and Sushi and Sashimi inside. We were having fun and I just didn’t take that many snaps (shocker!). I will soon post my story on “H2” Wednesday and Thursday Extended Happy Hours, as well as those other omakase meals. …Love the Nobu.
