After two years of searching for the right Hamptons spot, the Nobu team appears to have found a vacation home in Southampton at the Capri Hotel, which once housed the Pink Elephant. I hope to have a deal signed this week, co-owner Richie Notar tells us. Nobu at the Beach, as it will be called, will serve the restaurant's familiar favorites throughout the day and night. It will be a little more relaxed there might not be as much omakase, says Notar, who also plans to offer catering (Nobu clambakes! sushi by the pool!). I think its great because our customer base is there. It excites our staff and we found the right fit.
