SUSHI IN A WARM,
Nearly 40 years ago Nobu and Taeko Kidera started Nobu's on Olive in U City. Known for their traditional sushi and classic Japanese cuisine, Nobu's became a beloved favorite and established a legacy as one of St. Louis' top restaurants.
After four decades the Kidera family has launched their new contemporary eatery on Delmar with a focus on classic sushi prepared in the simple, old-world style Chef Nobu grew up with in Kobe, Japan.
The menu features nigiri, sashimi, makimono and a line-up of classic Japanese dishes interpreted by Chef Nobu alongside a curated selection of sake, natural wine and artisan Japanese whiskeys.
JAPANESE TRADITION MEETS LOCALLY GROWN
Chef Nobu and his son George have cultivated relationships with artisan farms and fish markets from Nagano, Japan to the bootheel of Missouri.
Along with fresh fish imported from Miyazaki Prefecture, Kagoshima and the Tsugaru Strait in Japan, menu items will feature imported wasabi, organic rice from Blaine Stewart of Heritage Rice in Bloomfield, MO, produce from Rya & Darlene Smith's Lucky Dog Farm in Wentzville, Sump coffee, Big Heart Tea and handmade matcha ice cream created in collaboration with Clementine's Naughty & Nice Creamery.
MODERN DESIGN meets rustic japanese Craftsmanship IN A comfortable, INVITING SPACE
The Kidera family worked with acclaimed interior designer, Aleksandr Sasha Malinich (Founder of S.AMD), known for his fresh, modern restaurant design including stand-outs such as Gerard Craft's Brasserie, Niche, Sardella and Cinder House at Four Seasons as well as Kevin Nashan's Peacemaker, Winslow's Table, Vicia, La Tertulia and Edera Italian Eatery.
Together they have crafted a comfortable, inviting space that blends rustic natural woods, custom white oak tables by Dave Stine and earthenware textures of the traditional Japanese countryside with warm lighting and clean Scandinavian lines.
