In my dating life here in Dallas it always amazes me how many men I meet that are averse to seafood. Their version of seafood in this land locked city is a variety of fried fish or cajun style fish smothered in gravy leaving little wonderment to what the fish they are actually eating tastes like. Many men I have dated that like sushi or sashimi (raw fish) are typically not from Dallas or not even from Texas.
I’m a big champion of trying new things and growing up in Hawaii having fresh fish at your disposal was commonplace while here in Dallas it’s a luxury. So when looking for a great date night idea with some of the best sushi and Japanese cuisine around, the couple that loves culinary thrill seeking will enjoy a date night at Nobu.
Nobu made famous for the signature restaurant in New York is the product of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. This restaurant in Dallas is designed by The Rockwell Group with it’s river stone wall and onyx sushi bar. This restaurant is ranked 4.5 stars on OpenTable, CitySearch, Google+ local and Foursquare.
Some of my favorite dishes include the Omakase- Omakase is a prefixe type of meal where you never know what you are going to get but you have complete faith in the chef’s selections. The translation of Omakase comes from language derivatives that mean “I’ll Leave It To You” or “To Entrust.” What a lovely topic of conversation for a date? This is on my list of 40 Dallas date ideas with Bradford and it’s a new list that I’m creating for our first 40 dates. Why choose 40? Well the number 40 is a very signficant number in various religions and cultures around the world. It separates time into epochs and categories and is referenced many times in the bible. See with love, where it begins and where it ends is unknown but what is known is that we have experiences and grow as people within that time period.
I came across this deal for Nobu’s 6 course Omakase dinner for 2. In these six courses you receive
- Two cold plates per person
- Two hot plates per person
- One sushi dish per person
- One dessert per person
Not everything will be sushi or sashimi. If you have ever had the chance to visit Japan or enjoy true Japanese cuisine it’s an experience. Some of my favorite dishes are the King Crab Tempura, Chilean Sea Bass and the Kawarayaki – which is a grilled steak at the table with seasonal vegetables & Nobu dipping sauces (6 oz. min). There are many great dishes to choose from so if you are unsure then :know your palette” and just ask for recommendations. My experience as a waitress has helped me ask the right questions to my server about the culinary experience I want to have. The more you know yourself, the better your date experience.
This restaurant is located in the beautiful Crescent Court which houses the Rosewood Crescent Hotel. Before or after dinner take a stroll into Dallas and have a drink at the Ritz Carlton or meander your way down to Klyde Warren Park. The setting for not just the restaurant but also the area is a great place to take your significant other for a date. Dallas is a lot more than just pretension, muscles and big hair. It’s romantic city that I’m in love with and I’m going to prove that you can love it too!
