The first Houston outpost of chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s beloved sushi restaurant Nobu is just about ready to open its doors.
The restaurant is now taking reservations for a June debut inside the Galleria, according to a press release. As Eater reported previously, the restaurant was on schedule to arrive this summer, but the opening does come slightly earlier than expected. Announced in 2016, the Houston location will be the second Nobu in Texas, following a Dallas outpost that opened in 2005, and the 39th location for the chain overall.
Back in April, Eater reported that Chef Carl Murray, former Nobu Dallas executive chef, would be coming to Houston to lead the kitchen. Murray has also brought some kitchen and wait staff from Dallas to Houston, which hopefully means that Nobu’s much-anticipated opening will go smoothly.
Nobu will begin taking reservations for its first day of service, Friday, June 1, at 10 a.m. today. The restaurant will be open from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
