Nobu Fifty Seven

If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be sushi. I am always testing out new sushi restaurants, usually a hit-or-miss venture.


During one of my recent visits to New York City, I went to Nobu Fifty Seven.  The restaurant was a little tough to find, as it was tucked away off of West 57th Street.


We were a little early for our reservation, so we enjoyed a drink at the bar while waiting to be seated.  When our table was ready, the hostess brought us upstairs to a beautiful dining area. The waiter then greeted us and we immediately browsed the impressive menu, as we were hungry. I went straight for the sushi and ordered a few rolls. The waiter was nice and brought all of the food at once in a timely manner.  The sushi was fantastic, and everyone else at the table enjoyed their meals as well.


I would highly recommend Nobu Fifty Seven to any sushi lovers traveling to New York City. We were treated well, the food was wonderful and it wasn’t horribly expensive. Just be sure to make a reservation because it is a very popular place.
