Friends & family at the new NoMad Bar last night. Separate and distinct from the bar at The NoMad. Entrance is around the corner on 28th Street, but I'm sure there are ways in via various passages, secret bookshelves, etc.
Beautiful, multi-level space. Great cocktails, as to be expected. This is a well-honed team. I really like the lighter cocktails making use of sherries, vermouths, amari, etc. Food was good - a really fine burger, a little-too-salty (imo) duck sausage, good baked clams, delicious gougeres.
COMP DISCLOSURE: Well, it was f&f, after all.
