At least six potential buyers have registered an interest in buying Nobu, the exclusive sushi restaurant, ahead of this week’s first-round sale deadline. According to reports, would-be buyers include Richard Caring, who owns a string of upscale leisure assets, including Wentworth Golf Club, Soho House and fined-dining restaurants The Ivy, J Sheekey and Le Caprice. Caring faces competition from Indian financier LDF and the Dubai government’s investment arm DIC, which owns the Travelodge budget hotel chain. Goldman Sachs, which is handling the sale, will look at proposals for a stake ranging from 51% to 75%, valuing Nobu at up to £250m.
