Scottsdale Fashion Square, part of the Macerich portfolio of one-of-a-kind retail properties in top markets, today announced that Nobu, the international restaurant sensation, will open its first-ever Arizona restaurant at the acclaimed retail destination. 

The new Nobu Scottsdale will be located just outside Scottsdale Fashion Square’s set-apart luxury wing anchored by Neiman Marcus and will feature genre-defining signatures like Black Cod with Miso, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, world-renowned sushi, and inventive new dishes created especially for the Scottsdale location.

“Scottsdale is such a beautiful area, and Fashion Square is in the center of it all,” said Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. “We look forward to bringing guests the Nobu signatures they have come to love, along with some very special dishes that will only be available at Nobu Scottsdale.” 

The opening date and design details are yet-to-be-announced but are certain to dazzle.

“The incomparable Nobu experience is an ideal complement for the elevated luxury presentation that will debut this fall at Scottsdale Fashion Square, alongside a superb collection of global luxury retail names,” said Michael Guerin, Senior Vice President, Leasing, Macerich. “The polished perfection of Nobu is a wonderful expression of the luxury experiences Scottsdale Fashion Square continues to bring to this exceptional and increasingly affluent market.”

Scottsdale Fashion Square’s phased renovation project, designed to maximize the property’s position in the heart of upscale Scottsdale, begins with the luxury wing renovation, and will be followed in future phases by the addition of residences, Class A office space, and a hotel. Opening this fall, Fashion Square’s elevated luxury presentation will feature new fine furnishings and finishes, custom artwork, a dedicated luxury valet, resort-level restrooms, and more. Key elements reframing the luxury experience include a striking new north entrance and arrival point, two-story storefronts and destination restaurants with spill-out, café seating.

According to Chef Nobu, “Design is very important to us, and we are happy to be opening in a property that is so focused on creating a beautiful and welcoming environment. I always say: good food, good service, beautiful design. That is what makes customers feel part of something special.”
