Nomad’s entrance is on bustling Second Avenue, but stepping inside is entering into another world altogether. A cozy and romantic space welcomes you, with murals on the stucco walls, North African antiques and crafts, and pretty copper lamps. A hot-coal oven blazes in the corner.

Owners Salima and Mehenni Zebentout come from Algeria, and embrace the diverse culinary influences of North Africa. Moroccan, Berber, and French ingredients and techniques make for a well-rounded and delicious menu, full of both familiar flavors and innovative dishes.

Start with labne, thick strained yogurt sprinkled with fragrant za’atar and drizzled with a generous amount of peppery olive oil. There’s, of course, plenty of warm, toasty pita for dipping. There’s also something about that oven. Anything that comes out of it, from crispy calamari to flatbread pizzas—try the Nomad, topped with sharp melty Cheddar and portabello—is exceptional.
