Nobu is cool, calm and tasteful. Its High Brunch is similarly delightful: elegant and understated with stellar food and an intimate atmosphere. The outdoor seating feels more informal where pale stone, fountains and lush greenery make for quiet and pleasant surroundings. As expected, the standout dish is the black cod yuzu miso;sweet, sticky and melt-in-the-mouth, it’s worth visiting for this alone. Dessert is a refreshing selection of cheesecake, yuzu sorbet and mochi in classic ice-cream flavours including strawberry, vanilla and mint chocolate chip: simple but exceptional and wickedly moreish.
