Where You Should Dine In NYC This Winter Season
Oscar Wilde, the playwright, novelist, poet, and consummate cosmopolite, frowned upon people who did not take food seriously. We would have to agree, especially when there are so many wonderful places to dine in NYC. In New York City, food is a serious cultural pursuit. If you haven’t dined at NoMad’s extravagant restaurant, Oscar Wilde yet, you should certainly make it a point to visit for your next most delicious meal outing. It is noted as one of the best holiday decorated bars in NYC during the most festive time of year.
The Victorian-themed spot that pays homage to Wilde has created a dynamic new menu thanks to their new award-winning Executive Chef Ali Dey Daly. After successful stints at Le Biblioquet, as well as the kitchen at the Plaza Athénée in Paris, Daly has whipped up an array of creative dishes that match the energy and indulgence of Oscar Wilde. The winter menu combines Victorian-style fare and Celtic cuisine with his classically trained French techniques.
“We’re thrilled to have Chef Ali at the kitchen’s helm to capture the spirit of Oscar Wilde which is driven by the legendary playwright,” noted Celtic Developers Group Co-Founders Thomas Burke and Frank McCole. “With nearly three decades of culinary training and experience in award-winning, Michelin-star kitchens in Paris, Shanghai and New York, Chef Ali brings a global creative vision to our bar, while maintaining true to what our patrons love the most – delicious comfort fare with locally-sourced produce and ingredients.”
