NoMad Now Has Five Michelin-Star Restaurants and a Wealth of Others for Every Occasion
Home to five Michelin restaurants, NoMad is quickly rising up the ranks of Manhattan’s neighborhoods when it comes to unique and luxurious dining experiences.
The Starry Ones
The NoMad Restaurant, brought to our neighborhood by Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park, is tucked away in the eponymous hotel and has one Michelin Star. It offers a French take on elegant American fare, with a signature whole roast chicken served with black truffle and foie gras. Request a table in the atrium to enjoy glass ceilings and greenhouse-style decor as spectacular as the food.
Noda, with one star, will let you enjoy a singularly intimate and theatrical omakase experience at its eight-seat circular sushi counter on 28th Street—made even better by plentiful Japanese whiskey selections and carefully chosen wine and sake pairings for each of the twenty-odd courses.
Atomix earned its second star this year for its sophisticated tasting menu that uses Korean-inspired techniques and flavors, served up in a chic bar and lounge setting on 30th Street.
Benno on 27th Street is a newcomer to the Michelin list, having just earned its first star. Its menu is a creative fusion of Italian and French cuisine, with dishes like rabbit confit-filled agnolotti proving just how brilliant a mix these are.
Finally, we have our neighborhood’s longstanding, classic fine dining experience at the triple-starred Eleven Madison Park on 24th and Madison. Featured on any number of “best of” lists, visitors can treat themselves to the height of luxury with the restaurant’s celebrated tasting menus. For a particularly special experience, book a tour of the kitchen and delight in the behind-the-scenes glimpse of culinary experts at work.
Other Heavenly Eating
But NoMad also features a wealth of options for everyday eating that are still memorable. You can get your caffeine fix at Caffe Marchio on 30th Street (and possibly appease your sweet tooth with authentic Italian pastries including bomboloni and biscotti in the process), or pop into Made Nice or Kazunori on 28th Street for fresh, fast meals that are perfect for those days when you can only snatch a few minutes for lunch on the go. Korean restaurant Atoboy offers a (miraculously) affordable tasting menu to alleviate some of the guilt of giving in to a craving for spicy fried chicken, while Lamalo at the Arlo Hotel is an ideal spot for a group of people to gorge themselves on hummus and pita bread.
There are options for the creative foodies in our neighborhood, too. If you’ve ever looked at a slab of bacon and thought, “This needs more fat,” then prepare to find kindred spirits at Quality Eats, which boasts peanut butter-coated grilled bacon and brown bag curly fries, along with cocktails infused with Cracker Jack. At La Pécora Bianca, enjoy an original take on Italian classics, with dishes that include an arugula pesto or linguine with Manila clams and chili.
Whether you’re a gourmand looking for the perfect, exclusive spot for a special occasion or just someone committed to quality foods even for casual meals, you never have to leave our neighborhood—NoMad offers it all.
