13 NYC Restaurants Mentioned In Rap Lyrics That Are Actually Good

Nobu

Japanese super chef Nobu Matsuhisa has mastered the art of transcontinental gastronomy with the Peruvian-Japanese menu offered at his namesake restaurant, Nobu. Boasting a menu full of traditional Japanese meals with a South America twist, no one does Asian fusion quite like Matsuhisa. If you make it to this TriBeCa hotspot, skip the sushi during your meal and order the signature Black Miso Cod, the ultimate crowd pleaser. We're doubtful that Yeezy would ever really step into Nobu without footwear; the "world's sexiest restaurant" doesn't quite match the bohemian vibe of that popular organic health foods store.
