“Making sushi is an art, and experience is everything.” Nobu Matsuhisa

Alongside Nobu Matsuhisa and the ownership team, R+B set out to create a space that continues to evolve the concept of the Matsuhisa culture for the 7,800 sq ft Cherry Creek location. In order to remain true to the Japanese culture, a thoughtful, unique, humble and purposeful design was sought.

Using the travel experience of R+B principals Sarah Broughton and John Rowland to Japan, along with a collaborative and thoughtful design process, the team developed a clear concept. Matsuhisa Denver is an exquisitely designed restaurant that elevates Denver’s dining experience. The muted, natural palette provides an elegant setting for the unique food presentation.

“I really enjoyed the process from beginning to end with your entire team of very talented people. Great job!  We all created a killer restaurant for thousands of people to enjoy for many years to come.”

– Todd Clark, Matsuhisa Partner and Director of Operations
