Asian, Japanese, Seafood, Best Restaurants: Los Angeles is where it all began for Nobu Matsuhisa, the acknowledged king of Japanese cuisine, who now has high-end eateries all over the world. His first restaurant, Matsuhisa, is a tiny place on La Cienega Boulevard; Nobu Los Angeles is further north up that same street; and the prettiest of them all, Nobu Malibu, is perched right on the sand on Pacific Coast Highway in the heart of that posh beach community. Malibu gets our vote for the best of three solely on location, for the gorgeous ocean views and sleek restaurant design somehow make Nobu's signature dishes like Black Cod Miso and Yellowtail with Jalapeno seem even more delicious when eaten there (and they are seriously fantastic no matter where you taste them).
Malibu's Best Restaurants: Nobu's stunning Malibu location has an enviable location with a wraparound patio on the coastline. You're literally right on top of the waves. Even indoors, you'll enjoy gorgeous views of the wide Pacific Ocean. Living up to Nobu's acclaimed reputation, the Malibu location continues the tradition of gourmet seafood dishes created by head chef Nobu Matsuhisa. There is also a sushi bar area where you can get some excellent sashimi and nigiri. For those just wanting to enjoy the ocean views, a bar area where you can grab a cocktail and small bites is available – and usually the only place you might be able to find a spot without a reservation.
Local Expert Gina Douglas Tarnacki Says:
Malibu's Best Restaurants: "Try the Black Cod with Miso if you want to know what it's like to have fish so tender and succulent it practically melts in your mouth."
Best for Malibu's Best Restaurants Because: Nobu Malibu provides the opportunity to dine at one of the best restaurant chains in the world while enjoying stunning ocean views.
