Like the nearby May Fair Hotel, Nobu's Berkeley Street outpost is a regular stake-out for paparazzi on the prowl for catwalk queens and premiership footballers. It can be ear-splittingly loud (especially in the glitz-strewn bar), but those who float up the winding staircase to the lustred dining room (a surrealistic, space-age sparkler) can look forward to pleasures aplenty – even if prices are pitched at ‘lottery winners'. ‘Fabulous experiences' come thick and fast as the kitchen delivers the trademark Nobu mix of exquisite high-art sushi, salads and east/west crossovers (black cod New York-style, say), all overlaid with South American tacos, ceviches and grills. This branch also has a wood oven, which knocks out some brilliant stuff – perhaps duck breast with wasabi salsa. Alternatively, sit at the counter with a two-tiered bento box if funds are limited – either way, staff are keen, knowledgeable and sharp (even if they overdo the effusive ‘konnichiwa' greetings). Exclusively imported sakés flesh out a blockbuster wine list stuffed with treasures.
