Les Nomades is a serene little spot tucked
away from the bustle of Michigan Avenue in an elegant turn-of-the-century
townhouse. Romantic and intimate with a fireplace; hardwood floors; deep, cozy
banquettes; and gorgeous flower arrangements, Les Nomades was originally opened
as a private club. It is now open to the public, and what a lucky public we are.
While many of Chicagos hottest dining rooms are filled with as much noise as
they are with wonderful food, Les Nomades is a peaceful, reserved restaurant
that offers perfect service and a magnificent menu of French fare flecked with
Asian accents. Excessive noise is not present to distract you from the task at
hand. Any spontaneous exclamations of love directed toward the delicious dishes
you are consuming (game, scallops, lamb, and fish among them) should be kept to
a quiet roar, as the tables are closely spaced and exclamations of wonder are
often shared. Dining here is a wonderful gastronomic experience, thus this is
not a place for a casual dinner. Men are required to dine in jackets and ties,
and women are comparably fitted for the occasion. Even children who are
rightfully pampered by the attentive staff dress in their holiday best for a
