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 it’s great because our customer base is there. It excites our staff and we found the right fit.”
