Founded in 2009, the NOBU HOSPITALITY lifestyle brand was born from a long-term partnership between world-renowned Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, actor Robert de Niro, and film producer and entrepreneur Meir Teper.
It all started over thirty years ago when De Niro stepped foot in Matsuhisa restaurant in Los Angeles and got the inspiration for establishing a restaurant in New York, a vision that became reality in 1994 with the Nobu in Tribeca. The venture instantly became the hottest restaurant in the city, if not in the country. From there, things just started to grow, and what began as a shared love of food soon expanded into the hotel business.
