Nobu is indeed, one of the most fabulous restaurants...the hype is true! Look past all of the investment bankers and enjoy the modern/naturalistic decor, and note that bar seating doesn't require reservations. The martinis are all fabulous, as is everything on the abreviated bar food menu. Act like a regular and ask for the avocado tempura (only on the main dining room menu).
