Dinner at the Mezzanine Restaurant at The NoMad Hotel in DTLA

Dinner was back in early April 2018. Different dining experience here than that at The NoMad Hotel in the Flatiron/Nomad District in New York, as the lighting is dimmed for a more romantic type of setting. But with the low ceilings, it can get quite loud.
The service here is wondering and, for the most part, so was the food. Outstanding was their signature Roast Chicken stuffed with foie gras, black truffle and brioche crumbs under the skin, and roasted with butter and rosemary. It is presented tableside before being returned to the kitchen to be plated. The breast cuts are served on plates with a sauce containing foie gras and black truffle. The dark meat is served in small cast iron cocottes with turnips and a cream sauce. It was very decadent, moist, flavor-forward and delicious. Their Dungeness Crab Salad and Foie Gras Torchon were delicious as well.
