LA's Food Scene Strikes Gold, Securing Almost Half of Food & Wine's Coveted Ambient Spots!
Malibu's culinary scene has long been a treasure trove of delicious delights, and one gem has just been polished to a national shine! Nobu, Malibu's famed gastronomic sanctuary, has scooped up the 9th spot in Food & Wine's nationwide lineup of restaurants with the best ambiance.
It's hardly a jaw-dropper that the laurels fell upon Nobu, the crown jewel from the culinary empire of Nobuyuki Matsuhisa. Remember him? He whisked away Food & Wine's Best New Chef award back in the last millennium – 1989, to be precise.
Here's how Food & Wine painted the picture of our beloved sushi haven: "Imagine the Pacific Ocean as your dining backdrop at this beachfront sanctuary. The restaurant's interior is a masterstroke of modern elegance, effortlessly merging natural materials with a panorama that is nothing short of oceanic grandeur."
But why stop at Malibu? The City of Angels shone brightly, hogging nearly half the list of the best-ambiance restaurants. LA's dining delights claimed four out of the 11 prestigious spots. Want to know who else made the cut? Head over to the Food & Wine website for the full, mouth-watering list!
