Nobu's Sake Party

| October 2, 2018 | Parties

Nobu Newport Beach toasted its first anniversary with a star-studded sake party in Lido Marina Village.

THE PARTY When Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro and legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa throw a party, you know it’s bound to be a night to remember. That was certainly the case as the dynamic duo stopped by the Nobu Newport Beach to celebrate its first year with a traditional Japanese sake ceremony. THE SCENE It was a buzzing scene as high-profile attendees such as TReSs Apothecary & Salon owner Tera Stephens and Lido House executive chef-partner Riley Huddleston gathered to sample Nobu favorites like spicy tuna crispy rice. THE HIGHLIGHTS The thumping sound of taiko drummers on the waterfront restaurant’s outdoor terrace signaled the beginning of the sake ceremony as guests moved inside to catch a glimpse of De Niro and Matsuhisa. And with a smash, the pair, along with DJM Capital Partner President Lindsay Parton and fellow Nobu co-owner Meir Teper, cracked open the sake barrel for all to enjoy. -Allison Mitchell
