Nobu To Indicate Endangered Fish On Menu
The move comes after Greenpeace used DNA testing to prove that the Nobu restaurants in London were serving bluefin tuna without letting customers know they were eating the endangered fish. The restaurant has decided not to take the fish off the menu because the restaurant chain's chefs protested losing the chance to create with the delicious delicacy.
The restaurants, which are part-owned by Robert de Niro and sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa, are popular celebrity haunts in New York, Los Angeles and London as well as other places around the world. Matsuhisa has been looking to switch over to supplying his chain with bluefin tuna farmed from the egg in Australia and Japan rather than fish harvested in the open ocean, a move that is likely to inflate Nobu's already hefty prices.
