Where does a celebrity chef have lunch in D.C.?

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.
