CLASSIC SUSHI & JAPANESE STREET FOOD IN A WARM, CONTEMPORARY SETTING
Nearly 40 years ago Noboru 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 is getting ready to launch their new contemporary eatery on Delmar with a focus on classic sushi prepared in the simple, old-world style Noboru grew up with in Kobe, Japan.
Inspired by Japanese street food fresh from the seaside market stalls, the menu will feature nigiri, sashimi and a line-up of thoughtfully-conceived favorites alongside a curated cocktail menu that includes sakes and artisan Japanese whiskeys.
JAPANESE TRADITION MEETS LOCALLY GROWN
Chef Noboru Kidera and his son George have been cultivating 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 and produce from Rya & Darlene Smith's Lucky Dog Farm in Wentzville.
MODERN DESIGN meets rustic japanese Craftsmanship IN A comfortable, INVITING SPACE
The Kidera family is working with interior designer, Aleksandr Sasha Malinich (Founder of S.AMD), known for his fresh, modern restaurant design including stand-outs such as Niche Food Group's Sardella, Cinder House at Four Seasons, 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 Stein and earthenware textures of the traditional Japanese countryside with warm lighting and clean Scandinavian lines.
