NoMI Kitchen Review

Suits and ties are no longer de rigueur at the Park Hyatt's NoMI Kitchen, a seventh-floor lifestyle-focused concept that goes along with NoMI Lounge, NoMI Garden, and NoMI Spa. The warm space includes wood tables with leather accents, an open kitchen, and a locally sourced, approachable menu rooted in French techniques. Dessert is not to be missed, with seasonally changing sweets that range from house-made ice creams and sorbets to delectable cookies and tarts. Fans of Isamu Noguchi's Wintry Branches will be relieved to find that the sculpture now resides in the main dining room.

    An Elegant Evening

    My dining experienc at NoMI was first class all the way. I booked the restaurant for dinner to celebrate my mom's birthday when she's be visiting me in town. I was albe to make the reservation only a week in advance although a later hour than I would have preferred. The dining room is beautiful with low lighting, blown glass sculptures hanging from the ceiling, and large windows with an amazing view of Water Tower and N. Michigan Ave (The Magnificent Mile) below. Our table was seated right up against the window, probably as we were only a two person table and every one with a two person table seemed to celebrating a special occasion. The service from the get-go was professional and attentive. We had sushi for an appetizer which was fresh and tasty. For our main courses we had squab and salmon, along with their associated seasonings and side vegetables which were delicious. The dishes were excellent, although the portions were on the small side. The presentations were appealing to the eye. Over the course of the dinner the chef would send over complimentary bite size portons of a dish and a dessert we had not ordered. They were amazing as well. For dessert we had the strawberry composition which had various components and layers to it. That was also amazing. As part of the birthday celebration, there was a small selection of various chocolate pieces sent over that were also complimentary and tasty. The other nice touch was that on our menus, they had printed on the inside a happy birthday message to my mom. Therefore we were able to keep the menus. Overall, we had a great experience at this restaurant. Definitely a great place to celebrate an occassion with impeccable service and top-notch eclectic cuisine. The only quibble were the small portions but everything else more than made up for it.
