Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s second Colorado location opened in 2011 in the heart of Vail village. Located in the 5-Star Solaris development, Matsuhisa Vail is a rustic urban setting complete with a stone fireplace, outdoor fire pits, large indigenous stone pillars and walls and custom woodwork. Floor to ceiling windows reveal a panoramic view of Vail Mountain. Seasonally, the front of the restaurant opens up into an expansive outdoor patio.

Chef Nobu’s new-style Japanese cuisine draws influence from his classical training in Tokyo and his life abroad in Peru, Argentina, and around the world, showcasing signature dishes such as Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, Black Cod Miso and White fish Tiradito.
