Hey isn’t that… Nobu Matsuhisa, the celebrity chef and owner of the global hot spot Nobu, having lunch with 12 of his chefs Friday afternoon at Nopa Kitchen + Bar. Our source tells us Chef Nobu was casually dressed in jeans and a T-shirt while his team wore their kitchen whites.
Nobu and company were in town to provide the nosh for the 2014 Children’s ball at the Ritz-Carlton later that night. No word on whether Matsuhisa and his celebrity partner Robert De Niro will grace Washington with an outpost of the famed sushi spot, which is a favorite of President Barack Obama’s when he vacations in Hawaii.
