The more casual outpost from the dynamic duo (Forbes Travel Guide Tastemakers Daniel Humm and Will Guidara) behind Five-Star Eleven Madison Park, Atrium Restaurant at The NoMad is the epitome of city chic. Earning its name from the pyramidal glass roof above the main dining room, this New York restaurant is refined and trendy at once. Natural light floods in to highlight the elegant floral armchairs and dark wood tables, while evening brings a dimly lit atmosphere, accented by wall sconces.
Chef Humm whips up divine dishes with the same expertise he displays at the more formal Eleven Madison Park. The menu is divided into several categories: snacks, appetizers, entrées and desserts. Your best bet is to order one from each column. You’ll find options such as butter-dipped radishes with fleur de sel; smoked foie gras terrine with apple, sunflower seeds and thyme; and a whole-roasted chicken for two with foie gras, black truffles and brioche.
This Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant is a tough table to snag, so be sure to make reservations ahead of time. And pencil in some time to enjoy one of mixologist Leo Robitschek’s expertly crafted cocktails, like Mother's Little Helper (genever gin, pale cream sherry, Chambery dry vermouth, Triple Sec, elderflower liqueur and Peychaud's bitters). While you sip, take in the laid-back luxury of the Parisian-inspired space.
