Review: Situated in the up and coming NoMad area, this newly opened seafood restaurant is just getting its sea legs underneath it. Our visit here was only 3 weeks into its debut. The service was super friendly and the food was delicious, however they were lacking on dish availability – they ran out of 2 of the dishes we wanted to try. Good, clean oysters, nice salads and a delicious oyster po’ boy made for a delicious night of trying out the new kid on the block.

Review: The NoMad is from the creators of Eleven Madison Park so based off reputation alone it is worth the visit. This is the type of place you take your significant other on special occasions. It’s cringe worthy tabs are justified as the meals are an event. At the NoMad you enjoy your perfectly prepared dishes surrounded by comfortable, dark, lush décor. We had a tough time deciding whether or not we should do the tasting menu but went with a la carte instead. The beef tartare and foie gras were insanely good, the duck and suckling pig were perfectly executed and the milk and honey dessert was a really interesting and delicious twist on dessert. On top of all that they have an awesome cocktail list with over 30 really unique and inventive cocktails created by Jessica Gonzalez of Death & Co. (one of our favorite cocktail lounges). AND, if you are looking for a little bit cheaper date option but the some of the same great eats and drinks, check out their Library Bar where you can get some of the smaller bites from the menu and all of the same great cocktails. This is without a doubt one of out favorite restaurant in NYC at the moment.
