There was a recent article about Tokyo (by Steingarten?) in which he tells the story of how, having failed to book Umi Sushi (which doesn't take reservations from foreigners), the hotel concierge booked the wrong Umi Sushi for them. This reminded me of how I almost sent someone to the wrong Miyakozushi, having quickly looked up the phone number, not realizing there are at least five of them in Tokyo.

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.

I'm only going on precedent. Forge was changed to Marc Forgione because Forge, Miami sued; Graffit was changed to Gastroarte because Graffit sued. As far as I know, these were out of court agreements rather than rulings.

Here's a thought I had about The NoMad (the one on Broadway, not the one on Second Ave.).

 

I'm eager to return there on a date (in fact, I've already made plans to).

 

But I can't imagine dropping in there to grab some food at the bar by myself. Not just because the bar area seems so uncomfortable. And not because of the expense -- I have no problem dropping into the bars or lounges at per se, Le B, Marea, etc. alone.

 

It's because this food, good as it is, just doesn't seem interesting enough to eat by yourself. It's mainly good as a kind of food to share with people who otherwise complain about the weird places you take them to.

That type of lawsuit is just not worth defending. Neither Forge nor Graffit really needed their original names to survive. Marc Forgione is clearly a hit now, and if Graffit isn't, it's not because of the name.

Well, of course it's worth defending if there's a damages claim.

 

But I'd be surprised if the existing Nomad has ever made a profit or can show how it plans to do so.
