Crystal nabs Nobu sushi – Cruise News – Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, international chef – Brief Article
World-class master chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, chef/owner of 14 restaurants worldwide, is bringing his legendary cuisine to the newest ship in Crystal Cruises’ highly rated fleet, the Crystal Serenity, creating a culinary alliance that pairs two of the world’s leading names in food, wine, and gracious hospitality.
Beginning with the upscale vessel’s July 2003 inaugural cruise, the Sushi Bar, one of the ship’s new specialty restaurants, will exclusively feature Nobu’s menu selections prepared by a Nobu-trained chef. Nobu will also oversee the Sushi Bar’s intimate design, as well as craft a six-course menu and other selected dishes for the ship’s Asian restaurant, Silk Road.
Nobu’s inventive cuisine has been redefiing the meaning of “sushi” since the opening of his first restaurant in Beverly Hills in 1987. While connoisseurs can sample his fare in his eponymous restaurant empire in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Miami Beach, Aspen, and Las Vegas, this marks a global expansion, as Crystal Serenity is designed for worldwide cruising.
