From Andrew Zobler, the man who brought you the Ace Hotel, comes a new venture in Manhattan’s emerging NoMad (North of Madison Square Garden) district. Apart from being the name of the hotel, the word connotes a spirit of worldly wandering that designer Jacques Garcia sought to capture with the luxurious, eclectic aesthetic behind the building’s Beaux-Arts façade. “It’s insanely beautiful—classic and sexy in a refined, masculine way,” says Jenn Falik, who’s made the hotel her go-to spot for breakfast meetings. The NoMad is also the name of the hotel’s restaurant, a more relaxed iteration of Swiss chef extraordinaire Daniel Humm’s other culinary hit, Eleven Madison Park. If you don’t want to dress for dinner, you can have something from its kitchen—the signature whole-roasted chicken stuffed with foie gras, black, truffle, and brioche for two, let’s say—delivered via room service. On the other hand, there’s something to be said for sitting at the bar, which has one of the best cocktail selections in the city.
