NoMad

This place is huge. There must be at least 4 areas where you can get seated. To begin, the Parlour room is an excellent choice. The ambience is very soft and so is the chairs. It is just bright enough where you don’t have to squint at your menu or pull out your flashlight. Then, have your dessert in the beautifully decorated library where you can sip cocktails and chat away.

Tip: Come here for lunch and splurged on the $34 two course prix-fixe menu. You avoid the crowd and get to eat to your heart’s content.

Favorite Dishes: tete de cochon, scotch olives, and milk and honey ice cream dessert

John Doe

My favorite dish from John Doe was the Mozzarella Burrata.The tartiness from the vinaigrette, the sweetness from the colorful cherry tomatoes, and the ridiculously fresh mozzarella created the best taste in mouth combo.

They have one dollar oysters from 4-8pm and happy hour drinks. I got a well drink (rum and pineapple) for 6 dollars!
