The gimmick behind Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s answer to the fast-casual, sorta-healthy, everything-looks-good-in-a-bowl trend is that regular folks and crusty old food misers can finally get a taste of what they’ve been missing at the dynamic duo’s Eleven Madison Park and also its less formal but still swanky sibling the NoMad. Blame it on bowl fatigue, but we were skeptical. And we were wrong. Everything we’ve tried on chef Danny DiStefano’s ten-item menu (except for a desiccated piece of fish in the cod Provençal) has been thoughtfully conceived, gorgeously plated (bowled?), and awfully tasty. The salmon rösti salad is like Russ & Daughters, and Dimes. The chicken rice is a worthy if toned-down tribute to the city’s halal carts. The curry cauliflower tastes as great as it looks. And the quinoa falafel could give Mamoun night sweats. If you’re feeling flush, go after 5 p.m. with a friend and split the $22 stuffed chicken and frites, a junior-executive version of the NoMad’s signature $89 roast clucker minus all the pomp, foie gras, and black truffles, but every bit as crisp-skinned and succulent.
