Les Nomades Restaurant Review

: For a bit of old-world (meets new) France, there are few better places to go than this lovely brownstone. Having seen the departure of chef Chris Nugent, it’ll be interesting to see what the new era ushers in. Dining here is an experience---and a costly one at that; however, the dishes are eclectic, well-balanced and draw heavily from local produce, facts that justify the expense. If it’s available, go for roasted quail with spiced beluga lentils, apples and Chantenay carrots when available. Follow with duck consommé buoyed with duck confit ravioli. The rooms are so cool, so intimate and sedate, that they’re worthy of nothing but the best. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic hideaway, this is the place. Service is discreet and polished (though sometimes with attitude in tow). The wine list is exceptional---heavy on French Bordeaux, Burgundy and bubbly.
