Nobu Matsuhisa is set to open a new site in London, in partnership with Robert De Niro, the actor, and BS Ong, the entrepreneur. The three have secured an 8,000 sq ft property on Berkeley Street, with a capacity of about 500 and a 2am licence. They plan to turn the site into a combination restaurant, late bar and nightclub, offering a less formal dining experience than the original Nobu. Mark Cutler, head of leisure at Knight Frank, who acted for Matsuhisa, commented: "No one has ever combined food and fashion with the same élan and attention to detail as Nobu."
