Robert De Niro and Chef Nobu Matsuhisa team up once again to bring their luxury Japanese cuisine to our fair city

On June 11, the city’s fooderatti will be all atwitter with anticipation as celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa arrives in Toronto alongside film star and business partner Robert De Niro to put shovel to ground and officially launch Nobu Residences bringing with it the first Nobu restaurant in the city.

The ceremony for the international luxury hotel brand will occur on Monday, June 11. Chef Matsuhisa, De Niro and Meir Teper will be present at 15 Mercer Street to launch the new venture. Built above the historic Pilkington Glass Factory (and incorporating elements of the facade) the 49-storey Nobu Residences will be the first of its kind from the Nobu empire.

The restaurant will feature Nobu’s award-winning Japanese fusion cuisine in a two-level, 15,000 square foot restaurant and bar, including outdoor seating and private dining rooms.

The ground floor will see commercial space, a fitness centre, and an outdoor “zen garden” terrace. Pre-construction sales of the 700 residences are already well on their way, having started in 2017.

Matsuhisa and De Niro first teamed up in 1993 to open NOBU in Tribeca, New York and have since opened up restaurants around the world in such locales as Milan, Tokyo and Dubai.
