Until yesterday, I never stepped foot into Nobu. It was one of many restaurants on the hill that I hoped to reach (the closest I got to was Nobu Next Door, once), and unless you visit by tomorrow, you’ll never make it either. Nobu Matsuhisa’s laboratory for experimenting with Japanese cuisine, which opened in 1994, is moving to a larger spot, at 195 Broadway, next month. The Tribeca original, though, lives on here, a talisman for good memories (I made mine there yesterday, when I had a chance to draw the interior). (105 Hudson St. 212-219-0500.)
