Jonathan Cheban's sushi birthday cake with the Kardashians

The Kardashians celebrated Kim's BFF Jonathan Cheban's forty-fifth birthday by taking him out to Nobu for a full-on sushi dinner. Jonathan, who has been a regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians as well as the show's spinoff series, is a close friend of Kim and the entire Kardashian family, especially Kim, Kourtney, and Kris, who were all present for his special birthday celebration. Nobu in Malibu is a celebrity hot spot, and to avoid getting too much attention the KarJenners had reserved a private room for the birthday dinner.

Jonathan, or 'Food God' as he calls himself on Instagram, is as the name suggests an avid food lover, and spends his days sharing photos and videos of amazing restaurants all over the world. The forty-five-year-old met Kim at a birthday party when the two were seated next to each other, and instantly hit it off.

As reported by ET Online, the private room at Nobu was decorated with golden letter balloons forming the phrase Happy Birthday Food God, and after a lavish sushi dinner, the Kardashians surprised Jonathan with an illusion cake that looked like a platter of sushi. Jonathan was also given a luxurious present by the KUWTK family; at the end of the dinner they handed over a bag from Baccarat, so they really made sure to spoil Jonathan on his special day.

Present for the outing was homager Kris Jenner with boyfriend of four years, Corey Gamble, Kim Kardashian with husband Kanye, Kourtney Kardashian, and Scott Disick. Notably absent was Khloé, but given the drama surrounding the Good American founder after her now ex-boyfriend Tristan cheated with KarJenner friend Jordyn Woods, she was excused. Also not present at the dinner was Scott's girlfriend Sofia Richie, but the reality family was shooting for Keeping Up With The Kardashians during the meal, which the twenty-year-old has said she does not want to be part of.

Jonathan was allegedly really grateful that the KarJenners took time off to take him out for his birthday and referred to them as his LA family in an Instagram post. Given everything that is going on with Tristan and Jordyn at the moment, perhaps a nice family outing was just what the Kardashian klan needed.
