The NY Times has labelled NoMad as “Manhattan’s Hottest New Dining Spot” in a piece previewing all the new fantastic restaurants opening in our neighborhood and the surrounding blocks this fall.
While “the 20s” already boast some of the best restaurants in the world, the Times clearly sees the area going to another level, proclaiming that “Manhattan has become so densely cluttered with restaurants that it’s hard to imagine a new dining neighborhood emerging. But one well-fed area is showing signs of even more activity: the area around the 20s, East and West, especially through the Flatiron district and NoMad.”
Below we’ve rounded up a few of the NoMad fine dining hotspots opening this fall:
19 West 24th Street
Helmed by chef Jared Sippel, who previously worked at San Francisco’s Quince and Boulder’s Frasca Food and Wine, is presenting a menu of Southern French and Northern Italian cuisine. He shared with The NY Times that “I won’t try to compete with the NoMad and Eleven Madison Park… But I still feel like I have something to prove in New York.”
Massoni (at the Arlo NoMad)
11 East 31st Street
Set to open in November, Massoni will present freely interpreted Italian cuisine. Massoni is helmed by Dale Talde, David Massoni and John Bush, who are the restauranteurs that brought Pork Slope, Thistle Hill Tavern and Talde to Brooklyn. We’re glad they chose to cross the river for their next venture!
Shay & Ivy (at the Hotel Henri)
39 West 24th Street
If contemporary American fare is your thing, you’ll want to give a shot to Shay & Ivy. From the team that launched Atwood Kitchen & Bar Room in Midtown East, Evan Rosenberg and Daniel Rieger comes their newest venture Shay & Ivy, which will offer progressive and upscale takes on American staples, including burgers and mac & cheese.
We’re excited to have Shay & Ivy opening here and the feeling clearly is mutual. Co-Founder Evan Rosenberg shared with us that “I have always loved the history of what NoMad has to offer and the charm that Madison Square Park conveys. I take it as a true honor to be opening up in such a desirable and bustling neighborhood and look so forward to serving our neighbors!”
