Updated 26/3/21 with the opening date
Boutique hotel chain NoMad are taking over the Bow Street Magistrates Court in Covent Garden, a 19th Century listed building that should look pretty damned impressive once kitted out.
If you're unfamiliar with the original hotel, one of the best reasons to visit the NoMad in New York is the restaurant that was originated by Daniel Humm (11 Madison Park and Davies and Brook at Claridge's).
Originally, he was confirmed to be in charge of the food at the London NoMad, together with restaurateur Will Guidara in what was to be the pair's second London restaurant. However, they parted ways after the first announcement, so things have changed on that front. In charge of the food is Ashley Abodeely, who was previously Executive Sous Chef at NoMad in New York, so there will definitely be a connection with the food at the original.
NoMad New York also had an excellent bar (its cocktail book won a James Beard award), and there are three bars at the London hotel (in addition to one at the main restaurant). Side Hustle is their take on the British pub - so that'll have a separate food menu too - and there's also the Library (although that one is just for guests). Finally there's Common Decency, their basement "cocktail bar meets stylish lounge" - we think that will be the one to watch.
We're still waiting for full details of the menu - as soon as we get them, we'll let you know.
