ABC News’ Nightline: Nobu, the Sushi Master

Last Friday night, ABC News’ Nightline profiled Nobu Matsuhisa, better known as just “Nobu,” who prepared some of his signature dishes and spoke a little bit about his background. To be honest, I have never ever eaten at a Nobu restaurant, but I have heard of him and his reputation precedes him in the world of fine dining. Nobu comes from humble beginnings – he tragically saw the death of his father in a traffic accident at a young age and the failure with his first restaurant burning down to the ground. Today, Nobu runs 25 Japanese restaurants that employ more than 3,000 people on five different continents–but none in San Francisco! I wonder why? Well, the next time I am in Los Angeles, New York City, Las Vegas,  San Diego, or a number of other cities, I will have to check out one of Nobu’s restaurants. Have any of you eaten at his restaurants? What do you think?
