Restaurant at the NoMad Hotel
Restaurant at the NoMad HotelEleven Madison Park is one of the hottest tables in town at the moment but it is an expensive night out and reservations can be hard to get. If you'd like to try chef Daniel Humm's cooking while you are in New York, the restaurant at the NoMad Hotel is a tempting alternative. Located at 28th and Broadway, the hotel has helped revitalize the neighborhood. (Its name is one of those typical New York abbreviations: North of Madison Square Park.) Under a skylight in the hotel's atrium, the restaurant is busy at breakfast and lunch with both hotel guests and locals ordering power meals, while the scene is more dimly lit and elegant in the evenings. The menu reflects the same approach to cuisine as that seen at Eleven Madison Park—an abundance of local ingredients prepared in flavorful dishes. Humm's dishes are largely American in inspiration but incorporate some haute touches: Roasted chicken is elevated by black truffles; butternut squash is masterfully paired with morcilla. There's also a quiet bar with its own menu of snacks, burgers, and desserts created by Humm.
