Most people know about actor Robert De Niro’s success on-screen. The man is a two-time Academy Award-winner, after all! But what a lot of people don’t know about De Niro is that he is a very successful businessman, having grown the sushi restaurant Nobu into a high-class chain.

The restaurant is run by celebrity chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa, whose signature dish is a black cod in miso — yum! But that’s not all they serve. The menu is made up of fusion-style dishes, mixing together Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. Today, De Niro and Matsuhisa own 39 restaurants and eight luxury hotels under the Nobu brand.
