Victor’s CafÃ?©’s Cuban style tamale is worth a visit alone to this celebrity hangout.

Nobu is a legendary New York City restaurant that is infamous for its celebrity clientele. Nobu is owned in part by Robert De Niro, one of the many celebrities who have jumped on the restaurant owner bandwagon. His name alone has turned Nobu into one of the best restaurants in New York City to sight real live celebrities. Best of all the food is as fabulous as the clientele. The interior at Nobu us a mix of Japanese and contemporary design that sets a calm atmosphere fro a spectacular menu. Only in a city like New York could the creation of such a fabulous restaurant exist. Nobu is truly spectacular. They are famous for their sweet black cod dish. If you ask for a recommendation for an entr�©e almost every server will tell you to try the cod. In addition to a fabulous menu Nobu also offers one of these most spectacular sushi bars in the world. The sushi may be what is drawing the California celebrities. Nobu is open Monday through Friday 11:45am to 2:15pm and 5:45pm to 10:15pm. On Saturday and Sunday they are open from 5:45pm to 10:15pm.

A large staircase was carved out of the center of the main dining room and leads into a lower level basemen that is always filled with celebrities, hip New Yorkers, and of course people watchers. I highly recommend their shave tuna served with mini tapioca bowls. Fresh coconut and line make this dish fresh and amazing.
