Nobu at The Shore Club Hotel

Nobu Matsuhisa - like Cher, Madonna and Sting - is such an icon in popular culture, he needs just one name. Nobu has come to symbolize what is best about Japanese cuisine in America.

Miami’s outpost of this popular restaurant group features the Japanese inspired, Latin flavoured dishes that have captivated his loyal followers across the country.

Opened only for dinner, you must start your meal in the Nobu Lounge where innovations on the tropical infused martini set the stage for a wonderful evening.

The omakase, or multi-course chef’s choice menu is the most popular way to dine. For those less adventurous about raw fish, the black cod with miso and the rock shrimp tempura are the stuff of legend.

Service is quick, friendly and helpful, should you find yourself puzzled by anything on the menu. While the dining room feels slightly like the bottom of a very chic swimming pool, have no fear – Nobu is the master of everything that can swim!
