This Japanese/sushi spot opened by a former Nobu chef will definitely set you back a few Benjamins, but with a menu full of interesting dishes (make sure to try the daily specials) alongside some old favorites from Nobu, it’s more than worth the hefty pricetag. And we haven’t even gotten to the space: complete with a river you walk over when you enter, light-wooden walls, and absolutely nothing playing over the soundsystem, the whole thing feels more like an Swedish spa than a sushi restaurant. And it’s actually awesome. If you’re looking for your next impressive date night idea, Umeda is your spot.
