In 2005, Robert De Niro convinced famous Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa to bring his unique style of Asian fusion to midtown New York (De Niro is now a co-owner). Follow the stairs along a wall of imported sake barrels and enter the David Rockwell-designed dining area's soothing riverside atmosphere, which includes abalone shell chandeliers, organically shaped ash tree tables, Japanese quilt fabrics flowing across the ceiling, and softly glowing lanterns. Nobu offers signature dishes such as yellowtail with jalapeno and black cod with miso, and traditional Japanese offerings include hibachi and an extensive choice of sushi and sashimi.

Insider Tip:

The chef himself can be glimpsed in movies such as Scorsese's Casino, Austin Powers: Goldmember, and Memoirs of a Geisha, in which he plays a kimono artist.
