Can have drinks in the "Library" or in the "Elephant Bar". The drink/cocktail selections are very clever and the taste mix is very inspired. Located in the back of the NoMad Hotel Lobby

We recently visited NYC and enjoyed a late lunch a the NoMad Bar at 28th Street and Broadway.

This is a place that has been long recommended by those who post on the TripAdvisor New York City forum for their dry-aged burgers. As such, we made point to include a lunch here along with the likes of Minetta Tavern and Gramercy Tavern during this particular trip to New York.

The NoMad Bar is walk-in only. We arrived around 2pm on a weekday and were seated immediately. Atmosphere is very nice, dark brown walls, a beautiful bar counter area and nice wooden booths with fair lighting. Service was attentive and timely throughout our meal.

Having a bit of a reputation for their cocktails, we tried a couple of their signature drinks, finding them very sweet and friendly. I enjoyed the En Maison, NoMad's take of an Old-Fashioned best. This was a smooth blend of Japanese whisky and rye. Cocktail drinks at NoMad were tasty but somewhat enjoyed less to those at Gramercy Tavern the following day.

As indicated, for food we ordered the dry-aged burgers at NoMad Bar. Ordered medium-rare, ours were served up medium rare to medium and the other just medium temperature. We much preferred the medium-rare to medium burger which, for obvious reasons, was able to preserve the nature flavours of the dry-aged beef. The patty gave off slight truffle aroma and taste and was very good to eat. The medium burger was still quite good as well, even if overgrilled.

While these were good burgers, we enjoyed them less than the 'special' Black Label burger at Minetta Tavern as well as the burger tried at Gramercy Tavern. Fries served with the NoMad burgers were better than those at Minetta Tavern.

In the end, NoMad Bar is a very nice spot for lunch in Manhattan. We'd have no problem eating here again during future visits to NYC but would target the other two taverns mentioned above first - at least for the burgers.

Decor is right up my alley and the food and drinks were delicious (NY Strip Steak was delicious! and the Fries!)

Ever since Scott Beattie pioneered the craft cocktail movement over a decade ago there have been many imitators and attempts at doing it well. Nomad is one of the successes. Not surprising considering those behind the place and their passion for excellence. The drinks were incredible and the atmosphere was warm. Service was especially attentive and crisp.
