THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nosh Bistro Restaurant Review

: Designer and restaurateur Neera Patidar decorated Nosh Bistro with oversize sofas and deep-purple bar stools, and worked with French-trained executive chef Carlos Gonzales on the menu, choosing dishes from South and East Asia, including India, Singapore, Thailand and Korea. Dinner is served family-style for sharing and includes items such as the “Short Rib Board” of braised short ribs, slow-poached quail eggs, cauliflower purée and goat cheese cream. But start with one of the creative Champagne cocktails and the spicy pan-Asian crab claws, or perhaps the beef chips with hot tomato jam and cucumber pearls. Choose a bottle from the extensive wine list to pair with your entrée. If the ribs don’t appeal, try the whole red fish with tamarind curry and basmati rice. For lunch, don’t pass up the thin-crust pizzas, maybe topped with ground lamb, and consider, too, the banh mi-style sandwiches, salads and a tasty Korean ramen. Coconut ice cream is a sweet and light end to the meal.
