Analyze That! heh
A $178 million Japanese style hotel in Herzeliya with the “Raging Bull’s” financial backing? Heck yea.
Apparently, Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro has a new act in town. Well, not this town.
The restaurant in the hotel is planning to open in Herzliya, right on the Mediterranean– Israel’s own “Riviera.”
Inside Nobu, large foam mats shaped like Japanese slippers adorn toffee-colored walls, absorbing the bustle of chefs and waiters.
The lowdown on Nobu
Patrons in satin tops, khakis and deep blue business suits mingle in the compact space near a ring of tables, most reserved a month in advance.
Meals at Nobu begin with a soft-spoken waiter asking your likes and dislikes, guiding you through an extensive menu that doesn’t list appetizers and entrees because servers here recommend ordering omakase, a tasting menu that costs either $100 or $125, or more if arranged with the chef. The meal features six to seven smaller plates designed around the diner’s preferences
I’m on board. Anyone hungry?
Imagine any Hollywood actor, who are notably usually to the left of good ole Joe Stalin -taking a stand for Israel or against Muzlim terrorism.
Other “stars” who are pro Israel and thus: Pro Liberty:
NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.
Kidman (and others in Hollywood) Condemns Hamas, Hezbollah
The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today’s Los Angeles Times newspaper.
It specifically targets “terrorist organisations” such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.
“We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas,” the ad reads.
“If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.
“We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs.”
A who’s who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.
The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.
Mel Gibson was unavailable for comment. Ha.
