How do you restart nginx on a Ubuntu passenger-nginx install?

I installed passenger, and then it automatically installed nginx. However there's no command to restart nginx anywhere. I tried service restart nginx and /etc/init.d/nginx restart and no luck.

You can just add it to init.d if you're more comfortable with using it.
