It would be easy to mistake Les Nomades for an elegant townhouse tucked behind a cluster of trees. In a city top-heavy with large, noisy dining rooms, Les Nomades offers a quiet escape--the antithesis of a see-and-be-seen restaurant. Originally opened as a private dining club, Les Nomades is now open to the public. To the delight of former members, Le Nomades has retained the refined feel and high culinary standards of the private club. Les Nomades is exceptionally civilized: jackets and ties are required of gentlemen; excessive noise and table-hopping are not tolerated. If the downstairs dining room, with its bright lighting and crisp white tablecloths, is too much for you, try the Salon du Upstairs, with its fireplace and cherry paneling.
