The box includes several varieties of fish (tuna, yellowtail, salmon, shrimp, king crab), as well as salmon roe, tamago, shiso, scallion, avocado, asparagus, cucumber, spicy sauce, wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, sushi rice and nori. It serves approximately 10-12 people and costs $550, which really isn't too pricey when you consider how much sushi you're getting.
Last night, we got a chance to check out the box at Nobu 57 and were pleasantly surprised to find that master chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself was on hand to offer amateur sushi-making tips. His No. 1 rule? "Clean hands!" he said, laughing. On a more serious note, he told us that practice makes perfect when it comes to making sushi. "The second time [trying your hand at sushi] is always better than the first. You have to keep trying."
To order the box, contact Nobu's special events department at 212-757-3063. The box will soon be available in all cities where there are Nobu locations.
