When Nobu opened in 1994, it sparked a decade-long frenzy of imitation. The pioneer is looking a little dated now, and is outrageously overpriced, even for its genre. The broiled black cod with miso, one of Nobu's signature dishes, has an addictive sweet-salty savor, but such high don't come cheap. The fish in the sushi, like a delicate petal of scallop, is utterly lovely and fresh, but the rice is chilled and gummy, bespeaking a certain laziness. Tempura sea urchin is one item worth the price, a light, crisp shell of batter giving way into gooey, briny orange uni.
