Rockwell Group’s collaboration with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa began with one small restaurant in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. Now, 23 years later, we have redesigned Nobu in a new downtown location—the former AT&T building in the financial district. There we continue to explore Japanese craft, this time the art of Japanese calligraphy and Peruvian folk traditions, while respecting the monumental beauty of the landmarked interior.
Plush banquette seating upholstered in custom fabrics with Japanese patterns in rich Peruvian colors define the main dining room. A river rock wall by the stair nods to Nobu’s original Tribeca location.
An intimate private dining room has shelves filled with handmade ceramic sake carafes.
