The NoMad Bar

When Chef Daniel Humm is in the kitchen, expect anything but ordinary. The NoMad Bar is the long awaited, casual creation by the man behind Michelin three star restaurant Eleven Madison Park. The establishment is reflective of a classic New York City tavern, yet treated with the hospitality and service of a top tier restaurant.

The ambiance is warm and the menu has traditional pub flare. Featured items include a delicious dry-aged burger, a bacon wrapped hot dog with black truffle and handful of raw items such as the tasty tuna tartare. While the The NoMad’s famed chicken  is notably absent from the menu, it makes an appearance in the form of chicken pot pie.

The space itself is gorgeous and centered around a colossal bar. Dark woods, leather booths and levels of seating suspended under dim lighting set the tone. Stairs ascend to a separate mezzanine that overlooks all the action, and trust me: there will be plenty. The NoMad draws a lively crowd with ample energy.

The drinks are spectacular and in some cases, a spectacle. Leo Robitschek, the beverage director, exceeds expectations with every move. Classic cocktails, favorites from the restaurant next door and several large format beverages will put you in an empire state of mind.

If you are looking for a casual yet elegant dining experience, the NoMad Bar will leave you satisfied. Access to the restaurant is available directly through the hotel or via a separate entrance on W 28th Street at Broadway.
