Sunday marked the first official start for NoMad LA, the sprawling Downtown hotel and restaurant property with the soaring ceilings and fine dining pedigree. Now for the first time the menus are available to all, offering a look at just what the team behind NYC’s NoMad and Eleven Madison Park have in store for the city.
Although the remarkably redone Bank of Italy building in Downtown actually offers a variety of different dining and drinking options, the two to focus on for now are the Lobby and the Mezzanine. The downstairs Lobby is where hotel guests and off-the-street diners will get to enjoy chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s most approachable food, available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is also an attached side cafe, a gold and glass room for pastries, takeaway coffee, and dinnertime drinks, as well as the cozy Giannini Bar at the other corner of the lobby area.
Upstairs on the second floor is the Mezzanine, the elevated dining setup with plush seating and the NoMad team’s signature truffle chicken. Diners can also expect fresh West Coast seafood, lots of vegetables, and savory mains like a suckling pig with crispy skin. Expect plenty of baked alaska desserts to come flying out of the kitchen at night, too.
Take a look at the opening menus below for all things NoMad, as well as a couple of finished shots of items from the Mezzanine. The upstairs restaurant is available by reservation only, while the Lobby downstairs runs all day long.
