Acclaimed chef Nobu Matsuhisa will add Sydney to his global restaurant footprint when Crown Sydney opens at Barangaroo in December 2020.
Nobu Restaurant Sydney will be the internationally renowned chef’s third Australian location, joining his fine-dining venues in Melbourne and Perth, both of which are also located within Crown’s resorts in the cities.
Nobu’s signature dishes, including the famed black cod miso and yellowtail jalapeño, will feature on the menu, with the full menu is yet to be revealed.
“At Nobu, inventive cuisine and unparalleled service are at the heart of everything we do. This will be no different at our Sydney restaurant. It is always about our customers and creating something innovative with passion,” said Matsuhisa.
“Crown Sydney is creating a world-class dining destination that is taking the best of the globe mixed with the very best of Sydney and I can’t wait to do the same with our menu and offering at Nobu. Sydney is one of my favourite cities and the food scene has always impressed me.”
Nobu has 42 restaurants and 10 hotels in 40 different cities around the world, spanning across five continents. Nobu Restaurant at Crown Melbourne opened in 2007 and the Perth venue in 2011.
Part-owned by Nobu himself, Hollywood superstar Robert De Niro, film producer Meir Teper and Crown Resorts, Nobu is known for a combination of signature dishes that fans return to time after time as well as the creation of new dishes that reflect Chef Nobu’s travels and each Nobu location’s local flavours and influences. Guests can expect to enjoy the coupling of time-honoured classic Japanese dishes with inventive new flavours and cooking techniques.
“Today’s announcement is exciting news for Sydneysiders, many of whom have been anticipating Nobu’s arrival in the city for years,” said Peter Crinis, Crown Sydney’s Chief Operating Officer. “Local foodies have been known to travel to Melbourne or Perth to experience Nobu’s innovative new-style Japanese cuisine, but with this new addition to Crown Sydney’s culinary line-up, they will no longer have to travel far to enjoy world-class Japanese cuisine.”
“Developing a world-class dining destination has been at the forefront of Crown Sydney. It has taken years of consideration to determine the line-up of our dining precinct. This announcement signals a new era of fine dining for Sydney,” Crinis said.
More details on the entire food and beverage line up will be revealed in the future.
