A Luncheon at Nobu Miami Beach

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Japanese cuisine. And, among my favorite restaurants is any one owned by my friend, and acclaimed chef, Nobu Matsuhisa. Nobu is the highly influential chef proprietor of Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants located around the world - every one of them serving delicious, fresh and innovative meals.

Last week, I flew to Miami, Florida to conduct a book signing for my newest Weddings book, and to attend the annual South Beach Wine & Food Festival. While in the area, I also went to a wonderful luncheon and reception at Nobu's newest establishment, Nobu Miami Beach. I have known Nobu for many years, and always try to visit his restaurants whenever I can.

Nobu Miami Beach opened last November in the iconic Eden Roc Hotel. Along with the Nobu Lobby Lounge, it will join the soon-to-open Malibu Farm, owned by Chef Helene Henderson. Since Nobu and Helene were both in Miami at the same time, they decided to host a collaborative event to introduce their restaurants, and to showcase their signature dishes and locally sourced specialties.

It was a wonderful time, and an exceptional dining experience. Enjoy the photos.
