I was about to spend the entire afternoon sipping Italian wines at Vinitaly last Monday, so I figured a nice big restaurant week lunch Nobu would give me a good solid base for the day. I checked Opentable for a reservation and they were fully committed. I decided to try for an open bar stool and found the sushi bar almost completely empty when I arrives around 1:00. I began with one of my old favorites the Creamy, Spicy Rock Shrimp Tempura.
The creamy, spicy sauce and lightly fried shrimp were almost as good as I remember from my last visit years ago...onto my entree the sushi assortment.
