Venue Info

There's something playful about the exacting precision that Ryan Fox and Ali Matteis bring to their offbeat and experimental 15-course tasting menu experiences. Nomad doesn't label itself a restaurant, but rather a "artistic think-tank" bent on reimagining fine dining. It's not as if they're too far off with that assignation: the intricate plates, often requiring tweezers assemble, feature inventions like almond ice cream shaped perfectly into an egg filled with jam on a nest of crisp pastry strips woven with flower petals. When dishes are delivered by the chefs themselves, with liberal sides of chatter, to any of the four tables in the space space, a meal at Nomad is all the more memorable.
