D.C.'s Sweetgreen in the NoMad Hotel, a New Hope for New York Salad

There's a lot of magical thinking and doe-eyed sustainability prose on the company's website and college-newsletter-like menu, enough to make this bagel eater's eyes roll a little, but here's the bottom line: Sweetgreen is Manhattan's best quick-service salad chain with prices on par with other midtown lunches. It's a salad company for people who actually love salad, who don't eat their greens just because they're supposed to. More

Carey's Favorite New NYC Restaurants of 2012

You know a restaurant opening is an important one when, a few months later, you can't imagine New York without it. 2012, despite plenty of closures even before a catastrophic storm that crippled, closed, or delayed so many restaurants, was a fantastic year for eating in the city. Here are my favorites of the year: not just full-service restaurants, but the odd bakery, cocktail bar, and Mediterranean lunch joint thrown in for good measure. More

Is The NoMad's $26 Brunch Chicken Sandwich Worth It?

When I heard that The NoMad was offering a sandwiched version of their incredible chicken—foie gras, truffles, brioche, and all—on their brunch menu for only $26, I suddenly thought to myself, hey, now I can finally afford to eat Daniel Humm's roast chicken whenever the mood strikes, before my line of thought stopped with a big mental record-scratch: wait a minute.

NoMad: Daniel Humm Lets His Hair Down

It's hard to imagine a restaurant more eagerly anticipated than The Nomad. Because it's hard to imagine a more celebrated chef than the man behind it, Daniel Humm. The Swiss-born chef has racked up just about every top accolade in the business for his work at Eleven Madison Park: three Michelin stars, four stars in the New York Times, a James Beard award for Best Chef: NYC—the list goes on. Humm and partner Will Guidara purchased Eleven Madison from Danny Meyer last year, and opened NoMad, a more accessible counterpart, last month. Humm tells us that his second restaurant is certainly derived from his work at Eleven Madison, but intentionally brought down to earth; "our food, but maybe not plated with tweezers." More
