The NoMad is officially open for reservations in New York, offering visitors a stay in a fully restored turn of the century Beaux-Arts building that has been fully restored, with interiors by French designer Jacques Garcia. Said to couple the feel of classic European hotels with New York sensibility, the space houses 168 rooms, "residential in feel" and each "appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork," including Mahogany French writing desks and Handmade vintage Heriz rugs.
New York residents passing through can enjoy a top-notch gathering place, offering everything from bottle service to a seven-course tasting menu, a fireplace room, an atrium, a library (featuring hidden booze bottles in random volumes - find one, it's yours free of charge!) and (soon!) the NY summer staple -- rooftop space.
An extra note for locals: that cult-y Chicken For Two dish you used to get at Eleven Madison Park before it disappeared? It's here.
