Nobu Malibu

Japanese in Malibu & Pacific Palisades

Chef Nobu Matsuhisa's empire of luxe Japanese restaurants began in LA, and the Malibu outpost is consistently one of LA's hot spots. East of the pier, it's a cavernous, modern wood chalet with long sushi bar and a dining room that spills onto a patio overlooking the swirling sea. Remember, it’s the cooked food that built the brand.
