Best Destination Dinner

Tuesday night, dinner at:

Nobu.


The diners:

Brigham.


Lexia.


The Dinner:

Edamame.


Shishito den Miso.


Duck Springrolls.


New Style Sashimi.


Rock Shrimp Tempura.


King Crab Tempura.


Washu Beef.


Broiled Black Cod with Miso.


The Dessert:

Chocolate Souffle Bento Box.


The Coconut Bomb. This picture is too confusing. It was icecream encased in a coconut sorbet shell sitting on a cookie thing in a deep bowl filled with yogurt.


Warm Sticky Date Pudding Cake.


The Space:

Post-dinner, as the restaurant had begun to clear out.



So, yes. Nobu is undoubtedly one of New York's most famous restaurants (and therefore . . . one of the world's most famous restaurants?). Cynics would put it down for all sorts of reasons, even go so far as to call it a chain, but let me tell you what I know: My dinner was decadent, my dinner was delicious. I would do it again. But on a different night, because apparently celebrities don't dine there on Tuesdays.

Almost my favorite thing that I ate were the greens that garnished a number of the dishes. Next time I'm ordering more vegetables.

And I feel I owe you this additional bit of an explanation: In her free time, Lexia is a hostess at Nobu. In addition to her hefty discount, her fellow employees gifted us our appetizers and desserts.

I can't believe they resurrected Sticky Date Pudding Cake just for me. The desserts were the best part. Next time I go, I'm having the Beef Tobanyaki and lobster salad. Sigh...'til then Nobu-son.

There was something utterly ridiculous yet amazing about the coconut bomb.
