BEVERLY HILLS. Matsuhisa is first-born sibling to the internationally trendy Nobu restaurants and is the chef-owner’s original endeavor. It’s not so given to fanfare as the others, and the relative quiet of the place is incredibly appealing to folks who prefer that the focus be on the cuisine. And what sublime food it is, thanks to an excellent sashimi salad, delectable tempura, and “new style” sashimi that gets a kick from Latin American flavors. Cooked items are also terrific, as is the omakase menu. And yes, it’s a great spot for stargazing no, not the celestial kind.
