Monte: I think the centerpiece is gorgeous. I’m not big on decoration, but this felt like a gaudy and yet elegant way to lend class to the room.

NYC: The NoMad Rooftop (Aug. 2012)

Tad:
– The height (chuckle) of one of the more exclusive NYC fine-dining experiences is the summer tasting menu at The NoMad Restaurant, on the rooftop of the Nomad Hotel. You must buy your “reservation” ticket at 10 a.m. on the day of the reservation, similar to the online ticketing system of Next and Alinea. It is the next progression of the concept of food as performance art. Exquisite.
– I am a big fan of Daniel Humm’s other work, so thought I would broaden these guys’ horizons with something they can only get during a few hot months in summer.

Victor:
-The food had to make its way from the restaurant kitchen all the way up to the rooftop, and I think that made things a lot slower. They took FOREVER to bring food/drinks out and to pick up our finished dishes/drinks. We started dinner at around 8:40 p.m. or so, and I think we finished dinner at around midnight.
-My iPhone isn’t very good at taking pictures at night, so most of the pictures have flash and look a bit funny.

Steven:
-This was a great venue…the food was good and it was really nice out. The only issue was that it did take forever. But yeah, light, tasty, well constructed, if a bit stuffy.

Setting:

We sat on the rooftop of the NoMad hotel, and here’s how the “restaurant” area looked like.
