Nomad - East Village Ratings and Reviews
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.
Loved this place!! First of all it's easy to get to. Secondly they are extremely friendly and helpful. I enjoyed trying new cuisine that they offer here - Moroccan. The service was fast and the food delicious. Great for groups or smaller parties (couples). Can't wait to come back!
Thankfully they have small outdoor seating. Maybe i'm just too old for dining out in the East Village, but the ambulances going down 2nd avenue were quieter than sitting indoors. At least we could talk between sirens. The music doesn't have to be that loud.
