A famously fancy restaurant chain is set to open up a new joint in Sydney.
Nobu has already established itself in Australia with venues in Perth and Melbourne and it looks like it will make the New South Wales capital its next home.
Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has decided to launch a new branch inside the city's Crown Casino when it opens at Barangaroo, which will likely trigger reservations from every A-lister and social media influencer in the city.
Mr Matsuhisa said in a statement: "Sydney is one of my favourite cities and the food scene has always impressed me - the quality of the produce is stand-out. I am looking forward to bringing Nobu to what is already one of the most interesting cities in the world!"
The chain became known in Manhattan for being the place for the rich and famous. Since then it has opened up 42 restaurants and 10 hotels in 40 cities around the world.
Matsuhisai was born just outside of Tokyo and earned praise for his delicious and flavoursome fusion cuisine inspired by his time in Peru.
The Sydney restaurant is slated for release in December this year, however the menu has yet to be finalised.
According to Urban List, some of the classic menu icons, like black cod miso and yellowtail jalapeño, have definitely been included for the Sydney offering.
The Nobu empire is partly owned by Hollywood star Robert De Niro, who raised a few eyebrows when he banned US President Donald Trump from dining in the famous restaurants.
De Niro revealed to The Daily Mail that not only would Trump not be allowed into a Nobu eatery, but the Taxi Driver actor said he wouldn't dine anywhere the President might be.
"I don't care what he likes. If he walked into a restaurant I was in - I'd walk out," he said.
