NoMI Kitchen Restaurant Review

: This Park Hyatt Chicago restaurant is a more approachable, casual version of its former self, offering seasonal cuisine, cool cocktails and fine wines. The dining room’s sought-after tables next to the floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking Michigan Avenue continue to symbolize NoMI’s reputation as a romantic destination, while other elegant touches like leather-bound menus keep the sophistication level high. The menu, formerly overseen by Ryan LaRoche and now under the direction of Paul Dobroski, is like a short novel with easy-to-navigate sections (For the Table, Soup & Salad, Mains, etc.) so diners can create their own custom meal, whether it’s a light bite or a multi-course experience. NoMI’s namesake maki comprises spicy tuna, eel and cucumber. Also on tap could be creamy burrata with strawberry, bacon and pumpernickel; tagliatelle, mozzarella and heirloom tomato sauce; and a Berkshire pork T-bone complemented by natural jus. Desserts by Meg Galus range from an elderflower raspberry parfait to tarts and ice creams and sorbets.
