Fodor's Review

Named for the emerging "North of Madison" (i.e., Madison Square Park) neighborhood in which it's located, this upscale-bohemian property quickly became one of the most buzzed-about hotel openings of 2012. Decorated by architect and interior designer Jacques Garcia (of Hôtel Costes in Paris), this Beaux-Arts-style hotel features 168 well-edited guest rooms and suites furnished with a selection of quirky original artwork (pieces are unique to each room), damask-printed velvet partitions, clawfoot tubs, reclaimed maple hardwood floors, leather headboards, Sferra linens, and vintage area rugs. Rooms range in size from the 340-square-foot classic to the 1,800-square-foot Suite Royale with a private terrace. Guests gather in the clubby atrium restaurant, headed-up by award-winning chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park fame, or linger with a good read and creative cocktails in the wood-paneled library, surrounded by book-lined shelves and a spiral staircase from France. There's also a rooftop lounge (open seasonally) and the first U.S. outpost of French fashion house Maison Kitsune.

Look for the More Creative Dishes and Presentations on the Brunch Menu

THIS IS A REVIEW OF THE NOMAD RESTAURANT AT THE NOMAD HOTEL. My spouse and I dined at The NoMad for Saturday brunch in late November 2014. We made a reservation online using the Open Table reservation system, and the restaurant called us a few days prior to reconfirm. The NoMad serves breakfast and lunch on weekdays, brunch on weekends, and dinner daily. The NoMad restaurant and hotel are located in the Chelsea/NoMad (North of Madison Avenue) neighborhood

of Manhattan. The hotel features 168 rooms and suites. Guests must pass through the hotel to reach the restaurant; there is no direct restaurant access from the street. (The main entrance is located on Broadway between West 27th and West 28th Streets.) The restaurant is comprised of a series of rooms arranged around a glass-enclosed atrium. In the atrium, which is the focal point of the restaurant, tables are arranged closely together, with tables for two placed in the center of the room, and tables for four set around the perimeter. A bar and a library (the latter of which features a two-story space with a spiral staircase that leads to the balcony) offer additional seating for a quick drink or snack. Restrooms are located in the basement. Restaurateur Will Guidara owns The NoMad (as well as nearby restaurant Eleven Madison Park), and Daniel Humm is the chef. Humm is Swiss-born, beginning his career in Switzerland and later working in San Francisco before settling in NYC. Eleven Madison Park (EMP), under Humm’s expert hand, has received three Michelin stars in years past, four New York Times stars, and has received votes for Outstanding Service and Outstanding Restaurant. Many of those exemplary qualities are visible at The NoMad as well. We dined at EMP in October of 2012 (see my separate review). The NoMad currently holds one Michelin star, which is evident in their food quality and service standards. Service was fantastic! Our server was young, but he was professional and knowledgeable about the menu items, and he offered suggestions and opinions when we asked. Be sure to inquire and ask details about the menu options! Because we dined previously at EMP, we knew the chef’s potential, and guessed that some of the menu selections might be more elaborate than what they first seemed. We ordered the pear salad to start, which featured thinly sliced pears alternating with thinly sliced daikon radish, topped with crumbled hazelnuts, and finely shredded pecorino cheese. When our server delivered the dish, we almost told him that we had not ordered it, for the chef plated the dish to look like what appeared to be an omelet. Next, we shared the scallop entrée, accompanied by parsnips four ways (pureed, halved, crisp, and raw). We also shared three side dishes: rectangles of thick pork belly, Brussel sprouts and leaves mixed with lentils, and wild mushrooms in a light cream sauce. For lunch service, The NoMad offers only one dessert: their signature creation called “milk and honey”, which includes components like oat shortbread, honey brittle, milk ice cream, honey drizzle, and dehydrated milk foam. If a restaurant is only going to offer one dessert, then let it be a phenomenal one like milk and honey! We loved our brunch at The NoMad, and the culinary talents of Chef Daniel Humm that we previously experienced at EMP were just as impressive here

A Fodors 100 Hotel in Midtown

Fodors 100 Contest. I only wish I had the funds to return on my own. Nomad is centrally located in Manhattan. A quick ride on a N or R train (station located at corner) will take you downtown or uptown. You are close enough to walk to the Empire State Building (and of course Macy's) Our room had two huge casement windows. The most striking design feature was the floor -stripped hardwood topped with a rug .It was much better than the usual

crunchy carpet of a chain hotel. One thing that I got used to quickly was the RF room card. Rather than slipping a magnetic card into a slot, you waved your key card across the doorplate. That was great when we came back with our arms full. No need to put down a bag to unlock the door. One neat perk is they have free loaner bikes. There is a designated bike lane in front of the hotel. It was cold and I was chicken so we didn't try it. There were two odd things about the room. First it had no chest of drawers. I am not a compulsive neat nick. I do however have a system of unpacking and storing my clean clothes separately from my dirty clothes. There were shelves in the closet but most were too high for me to use. I ended up making a dirty laundry bag out of a shopping bag suspended on a clothes hanger in the closet and living out of my suitcase. The room was beautiful but I think the room designer must have been tall. The other thing that was odd to my middle class experiences was there was no coffee pot in the room. I asked housekeeping for a kettle and a couple of mugs. Two bellmen brought up a kettle and tray of tea fixings. We were set. Overall I liked the experience better than a chain hotel. I think Fodor's did a good job picking a hotel that I would have never found otherwise. I loved the hotel but gave the room and service a 4. I think NY has hotels that are true 5 stars. The Nomad does a great job for its niche but was not designed to be a 5 star hotel. I gave the hotel a 5 for decor and value for money. Even if I had paid on my own, I would have been satisfied.

The NoMad Hotel REVIEW

We spent 7 nights in Nov of 2012 on a business cum holiday trip in an "Atelier" room (one notch above the standard room) costing about $340 which is quite reasonable for a property like the NoMad (complimentary wifi BTW) rate based on http://discount.hotelprimer.com/Hotel/The_NoMad_Hotel.htm . This is an elegant and brand new hotel in the Flatiron district. The neighborhood is not very inspiring, but the warmness of the hotel and the professionalism

of the staff make the stay a pleasant one. Did not get a chance to try the restaurant/bar, nor the gym (which was not ready for guests). Rooms are quite large for NYC standards and very well laid out and decorated beautifully. One complaint: tiny desk not suited for business travellers. Other than that I would not hesitate to recommend the NoMad over the Ace one block away.
