Bring on the Bento!
The critically acclaimed Nobu restaurants added another location to their ever-growing list with this year’s opening of Nobu DC. And now, they’re serving lunch! Chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself was at the DC location serving up create-your-own hand rolls, and presenting the lunch bento boxes for the occasion on October 30, 2017. Lunch service includes all of the signature dishes that Nobu fans crave, plus a classic Lunch Bento Box featuring Tuna Sashimi Salad, Assorted Sushi, Rock Shrimp with Creamy Spicy Sauce, Black Cod with Miso, Vegetables with Spicy Garlic Sauce, and Miso Soup for $45. It’s the perfect thing to split between two people if you’re looking for variety, but also for something on the lighter side.
Chef Nobu-san was an absolute delight. Arriving just in time for Fall in DC, he said it reminded him of the weather in Japan as he expertly crafted me a hand roll with fresh, crisp nori, sweet shrimp, fatty tuna, shiso leaf, luscious avocado and crunchy asparagus. A drop of soy sauce and a dab of wasabi made for one of the most divine hand-held bites I’ve had in the city. If you ever have the opportunity to eat a hand roll made by Chef Nobu-san, do not pass it up.
Situated on the ground floor of the new Residences on M Street, in the heart of the West End just steps from Georgetown, Nobu Washington, DC brings Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s genre-defining cuisine to the nation’s Capital.
With more than 11,000 square feet of space including the Bar & Lounge, Dining Room and Sushi Bar, and multiple private event spaces, the new Nobu DC presents the ideal setting to enjoy signatures like Black Cod with Miso and Yellowtail Sashimi Jalapeño alongside DC-inspired dishes and cocktails. Exclusive introductions including the only house barrel-aged Kikori Japanese whiskey in the region contribute to the allure of the newest destination.
Lunch service is available Monday – Friday from 11:45am – 2:15pm starting October 30.
