Lovers of Japanese cuisine have the opportunity to experience the world-famous Nobu restaurant during a one-week promotion at the prestigious Sandy Lane’s L’Acayou restaurant.

With sushi restaurants becoming more popular around the world, Resident Manager at Sandy Lane, Jan Tibaldi, said that there was no place better in the Caribbean to attempt this collaboration.

“Together with the environment of Sandy Lane, together with its guests, together with the Barbadian people, we believe we have attracted a very exclusive niche market. Not exclusive in terms of the price tag, but exclusivity in terms of tastes, quality, surroundings, and it’s going to be a success.”

The partnership, which runs from June 23 – 30, features six chefs from the Nobu Miami and Nobu Malibu teams working with several accomplished Sandy Lane chefs.

The unique culinary event will serve as a learning experience for the Sandy Lane team, exposing them to authentic Japanese cuisine infused with South American ingredients such as cilantro, jalapeno, and citrus. Sandy Lane Executive Chef, Richard Ekkebus, was pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with the Nobu team.

He said, “We are aiming to use all local seafood and as many local ingredients as possible in order to make this a truly unique experience; one in which guests can enjoy the creative Japanese dishes infused with the South American flavours that Nobu restaurants are known for.”

Assistant Restaurant Manager at Nobu Miami, Chris Manti said of Nobu’s style and food, “ It cannot be experienced anywhere else.”

Through the partnership, Sandy Lane and Nobu have not only succeeded in recreating the food, but they have provided the hip ambience and excellent service which makes dining at Nobu so enjoyable.

Nobu’s success and popularity at its ten locations is also derived from a commitment to using only the best ingredients. Seafood is imported from all over the world. While in Barbados, Nobu and Sandy Lane will feature some of the best seafood Barbados has to offer, such as tuna.

People who are not lovers of sushi can also enjoy Nobu’s signature dishes, which offer comfortable alternatives to raw fish. Examples of these are Rock Shrimp Creamy Spicy Tempura, Tenderloin of Beef in Teriyaki Sauce, and Alaskan Black Cod in Butter Lettuce. Also available is Nobu’s special brand of sake.

The first Nobu was opened in New York City in 1994, with actor Robert De Niro as one of the partners.
