How did they get away with this name? I was really confused after checking opentable, where I found "Nomad" to be an EVil Mediterranean restaurant. The Humm place is listed as "The NoMad" vs. the existing "Nomad". Seems like something they couldn't get away with.

NoMad opened to the public on Monday, March 26th. My blog post is about our "Friends & Family" dinner.

Can I cook my food too?

I dined at the bar at the NoMad last fall (I think it was a Saturday night) and the place was like a mosh pit. Nice food though.

Nomads don't care about property rights.

I raised that question on Eater, and got stupid replies. I agree.

Seems weird it's not a bigger deal. I suspect it's cause like me, no one has gone to open table yet to try and book it. Nomad much get a shedload of incorrect reservations, the only hint you get during the process is an "East Village" location when choosing times. Some fraction of people must not notice that.

How much is the reputation of Nomad worth?

 

As it's been around for quite a few years, you'd think the owner might value it.

 

I think he'll make more off confused tourists. Of course the NoMad can always change its name to The Imperial Dining Hall and Library at The Most Excellent NoMad Hotel.

No idea what the law is like for these restaurant name suits, but there's a link on Eater about Boulud suing someone for trademark infringement of DBGB. If Nomad East Village didn't trademark their name (seems highly likely), then can they actually do anything to stop The NoMad?
