With your stomach well-lubed, it’s now time to satisfy both the eyes and the palate, and that can be accomplished with the Salmon Kelp Roll. From its decorative purple blossom garnish (edible?) to the orange marbled salmon wrapped with the rare clear kelp known as kombu, this roll is ablaze with both color and flavor. The taste assaults your senses: it is at once crisp garden and citrusy ponzu sauce and top-grade fish, with the clear kelp lending just the right finish to it all.

Another signature house favorite: the Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno. No imitator has ever done this dish justice; Nobu is the master and everyone must obey. The $20 price for this dish? Cheap! Considering the extreme freshness and aesthetically perfect presentation. Oh…and a flower petal, of course, but hold the cilantro, in my opinion. Brush those aside and get to the good greens: jalapenos.
