More dish on Nobu 57's tripped out interior, courtesy of the Observer: the sake bar is composed of three slices of the same walnut tree, the stair railings are lined with soft leather, the chandeliers are made of baby abalone shells, and every table is a good table ? except for the glass-enclosed private table with a hibachi grill, which is a great table. Or, as David Rockwell told The Transom, ?Whereas the old Nobu was more interested in landscape, the new Nobu is more interested in fluidity?in the image of a river." Then, upon hearing that Ronald Lauder's canoe had just capsized, he excused himself.
