The pursuit of Nobu-lity: Keeping up with the Kollection of Kardashian favorites

On a scale of zero to Nobu, how invested have you been in keeping up with the Kardashians’ diet?

I have yet to watch an episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” and I don’t follow any of the Kardashian-Jenners on social media. But when Managing Editor of News Anne-Marie Hwang ’19 mentioned that Nobu, a favorite restaurant chain amongst the Kardashians, had opened a location at the Epiphany Hotel in Palo Alto, I couldn’t help but wonder why.

This grill is on fire

Saving you the hassle of scrambling for a dinner venue for tonight, we give the low-down on Palo Alto’s best Valentine’s Day menu.
We’ve all been on that one Valentine’s dinner from hell.

You know the one: tacky decor, middling food, overpriced wine and — worst of all — the rude waiter, sick from serving roomfuls of doe-eyed couples all night. At best, it is the worst date you and your valentine will have; at worst, it is your last.

Top 5 sushi restaurants in Palo Alto

Tired of Stanford’s limited dining options? For a refreshing break from stressful classes and summer jobs, consider indulging in some quality sushi at these Palo Alto restaurants.

1. Jin Sho
Aside from its claim to fame as Steve Jobs’ favorite restaurant, Jin Sho is a moderately priced gem known for its yellowtail jalapeno sashimi and spicy tuna rolls. This California Avenue favorite offers generally fast service and reliably good miso black cod. Make sure to call ahead for a reservation, as it is normally packed on weekends.
