Nobu Malibu

Wow! Thats all I can say. WOW! Never mind the other Nobus, this one takes the cake!

During my hiatus I mentioned a visit to Malibu. While laying out at Zuma Beach I thought to myself “self, how great does sitting at Nobu with a good book and a glass of wine sound right now?” Nothing like sitting by the ocean with a glass of chilled wine and reading a book. So I went!


The food:

The menu at Nobu Malibu is a two pronged endeavor. The left side is the “typical” Nobu menu available at all locations. The right side is the “malibu” side, where one can find  specialties exclusive to this location. These elite options are nothing short of spectacular.

The Waygu Beef tacos are actually off the standard side of the menu, but they are one of my favorite so I had to go for it.
I saw another patron eating this salmon version of Spicy Tuna over crispy rice. Its an off menu specialty and tastes fantastic.
Delicious house sushi roll
Salmon Pastrami. So good!
Yellow tail sashimi is another favorite.


What The Heck To Wear To Nobu Malibu:


As expected with pretty much anything in Malibu, the clientelle here is tré riche and somehow even the patron wearing yoga pants (albeit 200$ yoga pants) looks like a celebrity after hair and makeup. I felt like I needed to be wearing a gigantic ice rink sized diamond cocktail ring to really fit in here. The dress code was mixed so I could have been in denim cutoffs (one teaspoon NOT levis) or a gorgeous flowing maxi dress, as long as I had that cocktail ring I would have felt inconspicuous. However, I was in denim cutoffs (yes one teaspoon) and a tank with no ring. I was not inconspicuous but I did not care. A man actually bought me a drink! So I guess I still got it ;).

Don’t forget your sunnies if you want to sit patio style! There is an indoor option as well but while the weather is warm, why?


Sorry, not the greatest shot but it gives the idea of what to wear. I felt this was a good middle ground between expensive yoga attire and a fancy dress. All three choices are fine here. I think maybe because its locals and tourists?

The Ambience:

Seriously? There are no words. If I had to pick words it would be these: relaxing, rejuvenating, romantic.

The experience was so fab I actually returned two nights later with friends (you didn’t think I ate all that food myself, did you?!). I love that one night I was there relaxing and reading a book in denim cut offs, feeling revived and alive,  and the next visit I was with my man sipping cocktails at sunset and feeling sexy and romantic. The place is amazing. No matter your mood, just go. And go hungry because the food is fantastic!
