NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nobu Downtown opens today at 195 Broadway marking the historic relocation of the first-ever Nobu, and its sibling Nobu Next Door, from their original location in Tribeca to Manhattan’s Financial District. With 12,500 square feet of space designed by Rockwell Group, including an expansive street-level Bar & Lounge and stunning subterranean dining room, Nobu Downtown ushers in the next generation of Nobu Style cuisine.
The Bar & Lounge is set within an interior landmark space defined by heroic columns framing a circular bar beneath a striking wooden ash brushstroke sculpture. One section presents a coveted 4-seat sushi bar, with three sections dedicated to an exclusive new cocktail and lounge menu. Among the new dishes is the collaborative “Downtown Style Hand Rolls,” featuring assorted nigiri, toasted nori, and share bowls of uni, cilantro, jalapeno, and more, allowing guests to play sushi chef as they try different combinations and taste every Nobu flavor in one bite.
A river rock wall greets guests as they descend the stairs to the 187-seat dining room, and an undulating wooden canopy connects a series of dining spaces designed to function separately or as one. The private sake table and private dining room invite guests to enjoy inspired Omakase menus amidst hand-cast glazed tiles and ceramic sake carafes. The far end of the main dining room features a 13-seat sushi bar situated in front of an open-concept kitchen where guests will witness the creation of new innovations including Sizzling Uni Yaki, Plancha-Grilled Octopus with Chocolo Salsa, and Short Ribs with Jalapeno Salsa.
Nobu Downtown was designed by Rockwell Group, with build out by Shawmut Design & Construction, in the historic AT&T building.
Nobu Downtown is currently open for dinner, with lunch service to follow later in April. For reservations, call 212.219.0500.
