Who runs Nobu, Tribeca Grill and Locanda Verde?

These restaurants aren’t successful by chance, their success can be attributed to its co-owner Robert De Niro, Jr. The highly acclaimed actor, director, producer and two-time Academy Award winner, DeNiro was instrumental in bringing the artistry of Nobu first to New York and now around the world.

His support of the brand draws actors, musicians, and socialites alike. De Niro has co-founded and provided creative direction for all of the owned Nobu Restaurants. Located in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood of New York City, Nobu, Tribeca Grill and Locanda Verde each restaurant has uniquely become a landmark in the ‘Big Apple’:

What is Nobu?

Nobu New York, the flagship restaurant of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, has been a pioneer for Japanese cuisine since its opening in 1994. Nobu partnered with restaurateur Drew Nieporent and Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro to bring his modern Japanese to Tribeca.

Nobu draws upon his classical training at sushi bars in Tokyo and his life abroad in Peru, Argentina, and around the world to create a whole new trend in Japanese cuisine.

The resulting dishes, including Yellowtail with Jalapeno, Tiradito Nobu Style, Lobster with Wasabi Pepper Sauce, and Black Cod with Miso, make Nobu the innovator of new style Japanese food.

What is Locanda Verde?

Locanda Verde is a casual, energetic, affordable neighborhood Italian taverna in TriBeCa serving celebrated chef Andrew Carmellini’s soul-satisfying riffs on Italian cooking.
