Internationally renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa is bringing his famed fusion of traditional Japanese cuisine with South American flavours to Crown Sydney this December, 2020.
The acclaimed chef – known as ‘Nobu’ – is part of the much-anticipated culinary line up coming to the new precinct in Barangaroo.
His new Sydney restaurant will be Nobu’s third Australian venue, joining his fine-dining restaurants in Perth and Melbourne – which are also located in Crown resorts.
While the menu is still being finalised, guests can still expect to enjoy Nobu’s signature dishes including including the famed Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail Jalapeño. Other items on the menu are set to showcase and complement Crown Sydney’s gorgeous harbourside location.
“At Nobu, inventive cuisine and unparalleled service are at the heart of everything we do. This will be no different at our Sydney restaurant. It is always about our customers and creating something innovative with passion,” said Nobu.
“Crown Sydney is creating a world class dining destination that is taking the best of the globe mixed with the very best of Sydney and I can’t wait to do the same with our menu and offering at Nobu. Sydney is one of my favourite cities and the food scene has always impressed me – the quality of the produce is stand out. I am looking forward to bringing Nobu to what is already one of the most interesting cities in the world!”
After studying Japanese cuisine in his formative years, Nobu opened up his own sushi bar in Lima, Peru where he learnt to challenge typical Japanese flavour profiles with South American ingredients. From there, his inventive style of combining signature flavours with local influences quickly became a fan-favourite.
Today, the Japanese chef has an impressive 42 restaurants and 10 hotels in 40 different cities around the world, spanning across five continents.
According to Crown Sydney’s chief operating officer, Peter Crinis, the announcement signals ‘a new era of fine dining for Sydney,’ that local foodies should certainly be excited about.
