Here's the top-rated restaurants in NoMad. 

The Nomad Hotel
Food 4.6 · Decor 4.5 · Service 4.4

This “stylish” “trendsetter” in the NoMad Hotel draws a “chic crowd” that’s “blown away” by Daniel Humm’s “superb” American-European menu (the roast chicken is “one for the books” ); “spot-on service” and a “beautifully designed” space spread out over several cozy rooms help distract from the “heavy” tabs.
Mediterranean · NoMad · $$$
Food 4.5 · Decor 4.2 · Service 4.2

“Modern takes” on “traditional” Lebanese cooking come with “creative enhancements” at this NoMad “scene” , where the cocktails are equally “inventive” ; the “cathedral-sized” , wood-lined space is made for “big groups” , but its “nightclub vibe” has “noise” to match (hint: upstairs nooks are “more sedate” ).
Pizza · NoMad · $$
Food 4.4 · Decor 4.1 · Service 4.2

Another “stunner” from Danny Meyer, this “happening” Italian in NoMad’s Redbury Hotel is known for its “perfectly crisp” Roman pizzas adorned with “first-rate” toppings, but the wood-fired entrees are considered “just as good” ; the “high-ceiling, high-energy” space and “hip crowd” add up to a “noisy” , “fun” time.
Salad · NoMad · $
Food 4.4 · Decor 3.5 · Service 3.8

A “salad lover’s delight” , this “cheerful” counter-serve chain tosses up “super-delicious” locally sourced ingredients in its “crave” -worthy greens; lines can be “daunting” and tabs “expensive” , but true-blue fans agree it’s “worth all the hoopla.”
The Breslin
British · NoMad · $$$
Food 4.3 · Decor 4.0 · Service 4.1

“Haute comfort food” reigns at April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman’s “NY version of an English pub” in the Ace Hotel, dishing up “elevated” , “unapologetically hearty” fare (including a “perfect” lamb burger) to the “hip throngs” ; despite a surplus of “attitude” , most find it “worth” the “steep” bill.
The John Dory Oyster Bar
Bar · NoMad · $$$
Food 4.2 · Decor 3.9 · Service 3.8

“A must for oyster lovers” , this “boisterous” seafood spot from April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman (The Spotted Pig) rolls out “fabulous” bivalves and “tasty” small plates in a bright, “hip” space in the NoMad’s happening Ace Hotel; yes, it can be a “splurge” , but fans affirm it’s always a “treat.”
