Izakaya NoMad’s NoMad-Themed Menu
Japanese restaurant Izakaya NoMad has quickly been a favorite stop for locals since it opened earlier this year. The restaurant is unique in that it offers patrons a warm and festive atmosphere to enjoy staples of the Japanese cuisine, and, as the name would imply, the menu includes hard-to-find izakaya dishes.
An izakaya is traditionally a sort of Japanese gastropub that offers a limited food menu paired with alcohol offerings. Izakayas typically cater to an after-work crowd and so the atmosphere tends to be more casual than the typical Japanese restaurants one might find in New York City.
Located at 13 West 26th Street, the Izakaya NoMad offers both lunch and dinner service. The dinner menu features a range of shashimi, yakitori skewers and tempura. Perhaps the highlight of the dinner menu are the “NoMad Dishes to Share,” a selection of larger entrees that epitomize the neighborhoods blend of business, nightlife and culture. We recommend the NoMad Butamoyasi (sizzling green bean sprout, chives, onion and smoked bacon in oyster sauce).
The lunch menu offers rice and noodle-based dishes, as well as a few appetizers, at a reasonable lunch-special price. The drink menu contains a large variety of Japanese beers, sakes, Korean soju and a sizeable wine collection. Head over to NoMad and explore this great menu!
