The latest venture from the group that brought us The Ace Hotel New York, is a new lodging housed in a turn of the century Beaux-Arts building in the city's NoMad neighbourhood (North of Madison Square Park). Designed by celebrated French interior designer Jacques Garcia (the man behind Paris' Hotel Costes), the NoMad is Garcia's first New York hotel and is a re-imagined Parisian flat of the designer's youth, sporting traditional French mahogany writing desks, reclaimed maple wood floors and Deyrolle butterfly boxes on the walls. The grand two-level library comes complete with a mezzanine 'catwalk' and eclectic literary collection, while the restaurant is run by chef-duo Daniel Humm and Will Guidara and takes inspiration from their three-Michelin star restaurant, Eleven Madison Park.
