The NoMad Library & Rooftop

I hate to say it, but the Library… kind of overrated.  Sure, it’s really cute, and the concept is clever, but the drink menu was underwhelming and the small bites were so-so.  I mean, why is everybody raving about the radishes covered in butter?  Why?  I swear I could still taste the soil.

I must say, though, The NoMad Library Bar is an ideal date spot – quiet, dark and cozy.  The restaurant is so loud and buzzy that it’s nice to be able to sneak away and be tucked back in your own private space.  Great concept, but the service was slow and the menu could definitely use some sprucing.

The Rooftop, however, is beautiful, overlooking midtown and the Empire State Building.  It closes on August 31 for the summer (sad!), so I recommend checking it out if you have the time and the funds to pay for the chef’s seven-course tasting menu.
