It would be easy to mistake Les Nomades for an
elegant townhouse tucked behind a cluster of trees. In a city top-heavy with
large, noisy dining rooms, Les Nomades offers a quiet escape--the antithesis of
a see-and-be-seen restaurant. Originally opened as a private dining club, Les
Nomades is now open to the public. To the delight of former members, Le Nomades
has retained the refined feel and high culinary standards of the private club.
Les Nomades is exceptionally civilized: jackets and ties are required of
gentlemen; excessive noise and table-hopping are not tolerated. If the
downstairs dining room, with its bright lighting and crisp white tablecloths, is
too much for you, the Salon du Upstairs, with its fireplace and cherry paneling,
should calm you--just don't fall asleep.
