Mother’s Day in NoMad
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re in need of a few ideas to show mom a good time in the big city, the Experience NoMad team has put together a handy guide to ensure a delightful day.
828 Sixth Avenue (And 29th Street)
First things first: make sure to order flowers. Superior Florist has been serving New York City since 1930, so they know a thing or two about which bouquet mom will love the best. Swing by to see their beautiful, eclectic Mother’s Day selections.
200 Fifth Avenue (And 23rd Street)
From 11-2pm on Saturday, chocolate expert Elana Iaciofano will lead you and mom through a unique hands-on history of the iconic Perugina brand from the Umbria region of Italy. Don’t worry, you’ll get to taste a whole bunch, too. And then…you’ll even get a shot at making your own Baci (Italian for kiss): velvety dark chocolate filled with whipped chocolate and chopped hazelnuts. The only thing that could make it better is a bottle of Etna Rosso from the Eataly wine shop.
1130 Broadway Avenue (And 25th Street)
Post-chocolate decadence could only be matched by a divine facial. Let the skilled skin therapists treat your mother’s beautiful visage with the utmost of care. Choose between a 30, 50, or 75 minute facial to get the day started luxuriously.
Serenity Spa NoMad
49 West 27th Street (Between Sixth Avenue and Broadway)
Next up on the agenda is Serenity Spa NoMad. Opened in 2004, Serenity Spa has been the neighborhood spot for all things manicure, pedicure, waxing, massage, and more. There’s quite a bit on your Mother’s Day to-do list, so a 30-minute massage will do the trick.
11 East 31st Street (Between Madison and Fifth Avenue)
All that chocolate and pampering has made you peckish, so it’s time for a drink and a snack on the 31st floor rooftop bar at the new-hotel-on-the-block Arlo NoMad. Kick back and relax amidst glimmering views of NoMad with a cocktail in hand and a slice of Detroit-style pizza from Arlo’s restaurant Massimo.
4 West 29th Street (Between Broadway and Fifth Avenue)
When you walk into Maison 10, it’s best to have a game plan because you’ll want to buy just about everything. The shop acts as a platform for various designers and artists to feature their unique products. The store also supports various charities handpicked by the Maison 10 founders, so pick mom up a Greenhouse candle by Earl of East and feel great about both helping boost a small business and giving to those less fortunate.
1133 Broadway Avenue (And 26th Street)
Though it spent 29 of its 50 years of service in Midtown, the iconic bookstore is proud to call NoMad its new home in the historic St. James Building. Pop by to get mom some new reading material or just take a quiet break from the busy day.
345 Park Avenue South (And 26th Street)
After a long, busy day it’s time for a good meal. Upland is Chef Justin Smillie’s ode to his native California nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of NoMad. With the new season in full swing, Upland’s menu is sure to reflect everything tasty that spring has to offer in the airy digs.
Happy Mother’s Day!
