Nomad - East Village Ratings and Reviews
We went there because our friend, Lisa Pakulski, was filling in for the singer in the back room. We loved the back room; we thought it was the best thing about the restaurant. It's like a little jazz club within the restaurant. We were disappointed that they didn't have a real bar. The food was good, but a little pricey. I'm not used to spending $95 tip included for dinner for me and my wife wt only a single glass of wine each--but we don't go out much so that's probably my problem more than anything. But we were there for the music and that part of the evening was great--the room was superb and Lisa was great.
This restaurant has been in our neighborhood for years. We always ate at their sister restaurant across Second Ave, We decided to try it and we were glad we did. The food was delicious. We started with a mussel appetizer. We were presented with a large plate of mussels. It was tasty and good value. We then had the Appetizer Trio of 3 dips. This also was delicious. I ordered the Lamb shank which I love and am happy to find as a menu choice. This dish was cooked with apricots, prunes and almonds which did a 180 on the usual way lamb shank is cooked and I just loved it. My wife had the fish of the day which was a whole Bronzini which they gladly filleted for her as she hates dealing with bones. She also loved it as it was cooked with various vegetables. My son had the lamb from the choice of daily specials and my daughter had a chicken dish. We all loved the food. The manager came over several times inquiring how the food was. This manger is very attentive to his customers. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable , All in all my family loved this restaurant and would recommend it.
This cozy eatery with a Mideast-North African vibe will please the pickiest eater. That's because there are so many delicious menu options - everything from full courses like whole broiled fish and tangines (delicious) to flatbreads, hummus platters and veggie sides (also yummy) If you like calamari, this is no miss. A nice selection of wines. My guests and I plan a return visit - soon. And it's right around the corner from New York Theatre Workshop.
We were there early, so cannot comment on how noisy or quiet it is when busy. Nomad is charming, small, and, when we were there, empty. It is on busy 2nd Ave. on the Lower East Side. A great bathroom, dim, filled with artifacts from the Middle East. The service was attentive, although they seemed unconcerned/oblivious to our Open Table reservation. I indicated on it that it was our 37th anniversary, but the wait person did not acknowledge knowing that. The halloumi cheese appetizer was terrific. We go back.
Although the food was delicious, the service was lacking. When I checked in the waitress brought us to the table without checking us in. I asked her specifically to make certain she checked me in, but apparently she never did (I received an email asking me why I didn't show up for my reservation). We also had listed on the reservation and told the waitress upon being seated we had an hour to order and eat because we were eating during a theatre dinner break. I ordered two appetizers for my dinner and my friend ordered an entree. We told the waitress my food should be brought with my friend's entree. Instead, my food came immediately and hers took another 25 minutes. They offered us a large bottle of pellegrino water which we couldn't take (no time to drink it) and ultimately gave me a refill on my Diet Coke. Very disappointing.
The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous, a delicious grain. Nomad offers cous cous as a side or as a main with vegetables, chicken or lamb. I did not try the C\chicken dish cooked in a tagine, but a friend did, and loved it. Moroccan cuisine includes seafood dishes. Salmon was delicious. A variety of salads are on the menu. After the meal we had sweet spearmint Moroccan tea. Very tasty. The creme brulee is amazing. Nomad is a clean, cozy space with authentic Morrocan decor and soft lighting. If you're looking for a quiet, low key evening, with wonderful food, and friendly service, this is the place.
What a pleasant surprise Nomad was. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside, teh relatively quiet and well-spaced tables make for a relaxed and comfortable meal of high quality North African (middle-eastern) food. The quantities were plentiful and the tasty, so much so there was no room for dessert. Very reasonable prices - this place will stay in our cel phone contacts.
Nomad is charming and cozy, and the service is friendly and attentive but no overbearing. The Nomad Trio appetizer is superb, and the freshly made pitas are sensational. The beet, goat cheese and arugula salad is fresh and perfectly dressed--a standout version of a common favorite. Mains were very good we had a delicious branzini special and the excellent lamb tajine. Nomad is a wonderful find: we'll be back, and often.
