The NoMad Makes its West Coast Debut in DTLA
There’s a new reason to dine, stay, and play in DTLA.
Amidst a booming renaissance, downtown Los Angeles is one of the most rapidly changing places in the city. And thanks to celebrated chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara—the dynamic duo behind New York City’s acclaimed Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad—the up-and-coming destination is more appealing than ever.
After years of massive success in Manhattan, the hotel-restaurant hybrid has officially opened its doors on the West Coast. And the lavish new space is beyond stunning.
Located in the neighborhood’s historic Giannini Place building, NoMad Los Angeles is an opulent 250-room hotel boasting an ornate two-story lobby, a fine dining restaurant, bar, and casual café, a library, and a 50-ton preserved bank vault door.
Originally built in the 1920s as the headquarters for the Bank of Italy, the extravagant destination pays homage to the landmark building’s Italian roots with a wealth of stylish details and luxe décor. There’s also a rooftop pool and event space with sweeping panoramic views of downtown.
So will the team be doing their trademark chicken for two? Yes (phew). The new outpost will feature several signatures from the NYC flagship, including gorgeous, seasonally-driven cuisine, and some new surprises authentic to LA.
This is Humm and Guidara’s first project outside the Big Apple, but they broke into the LA dining scene with high hopes for a welcome reception.
Guidara shares to Vanity Fair, “We’ve worked really hard to give people a reason to make the trek to downtown. We hope they give it a shot.”
