Nobuo at Teeter House, the Japanese restaurant in downtown's historic Heritage Square, has been closed since March 30, 2020, because of the pandemic. Now, it is permanently closed.

Nobuo — one of our top 100 restaurants — was run by James Beard Award-winning chef Nobuo Fukuda. Fukuda was born and raised in Tokyo and has worked as a chef in Arizona for more than 30 years. The omakase-style restaurant was housed in the 1899 Bouvier Teeter House, a distinct turn-of-the-century wood-floored bungalow.

According to The Arizona Republic, Nobuo is currently looking for a new location to open a restaurant with a more casual concept — but taking his time doing it.

For more information, see the Nobuo at Teeter House website.
