Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s newest restaurant — Nobu Honolulu — opens Friday in the Ward Village master-planned community, the company announced today.

The restaurant’s original Oahu location, in the Waikiki Parc Hotel, closes tonight, with the restaurant making the move to the ground floor of the Waiea residential building.

In a statement Matsuhisa called Ward Village “the perfect place for Nobu.”

The 11,000-square-foot space includes an outdoor bar, open kitchen and teppanyaki room, one of the few in the Nobu chain.

The menu preserves such signature dishes as Black Miso Cod and Yellowtail Jalapeno, and introduces several exclusive to the location: spicy lomi salmon with taro chips, oven-roasted local shrimp with ginger shiso salsa, and Ribeye Umamiyaki, served with root vegetables from local Ma’o Farms.

The leadership team from Nobu Waikiki will move to Ward — chef Matt Raso, sushi chef Yoshio Ono and Yuka Hinoda Raso, general manager.

Reservations: 237-6999.
