I should probably start by saying that there are 4832904839 hotels in New York City, so finding the right one took a while. I came across NoMo around the middle of my search and was immediately fond of the location, which as you could assume by the name, is in the middle of the Soho area. The place looked gorgeous from the rooms to the rooftop to the dining room. More importantly, the prices were extremely affordable. I was sold.Upon arrival, I was greeted by every single person I saw. Coming from Miami, that was a bit of a culture shock considering you’re lucky if someone holds the door open for you. The rooms were spacious and had beautiful views of the city. It is actually one of the tallest buildings in Soho which allows you to see a mile in every direction. Now you don’t have to pay $70 to go to the top of the Empire State Building. Besides the desire to lay in a robe all day, it was time to do what I came to NYC to do: EAT. The first day we hit around 13 spots. I know…13 MF restaurants. I could barely breathe by the end but it was what us food-

On Monday, we had breakfast at the hotel. We were sat in their Beauty and the Beast inspired greenhouse which had a beautiful mirrored bar and chandeliers hanging from every corner. I will tell you I took 400 pictures of that room and they still didn’t do the room justice. Anyways, on to the most anticipated part. This is what I highly recommend for breakfast:

Naughty Fork Recommended Breakfast:

BAKED LEMON RICOTTA PANCAKES | Macerated Berries | Candied Sicilian Pistachios
FRENCH TOAST | Elderflower Crème | Acai-Beet Jam
EGGS BENEDICT | Charred Leek Biscuit | Hollandaise | w/ Smoked Salmon
ACAI BOWL | Super Greens | Flax Seeds | Almond Milk | Blueberries

The pancakes were the fluffiest pancakes I had ever eaten. They’re probably the best-kept secret in NYC because if anyone knew, there would be a line out the door for them. If you’re trying to be on the healthier side, the acai bowl is a good choice. It’ll give you that feel-good feeling before starting your day (although I would still get the pancakes). We also joined the hotel for lunch and had a delicious Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe. This is a pasta dish with a poached egg in the middle. For anyone waking up at 1pm super hungover and in need of a lunch/breakfast, here’s your dish.

As Tuesday came rolling around, I didn’t feel that great. I thought maybe it was the excessive amount of food or maybe just a simple hangover but as the day went on, I felt worse and worse. I made a comment to the front desk about feeling under the weather and proceeded up to my room to try to sleep it off. A little later, I was greeted at the door by a gentleman holding a tray. The tray had on it a cup of tea, some toast, a ginger ale to calm the stomach, and a juice with orange bitters. Alongside the tray was a letter wishing I would feel better which was sent up by the hotel. It was probably the nicest thing anyone has done for me in a really long time! If that isn’t true hospitality, I don’t know what is. Funny enough, Tuesday was actually the day I hit 200,000 followers on Instagram. I celebrated in bed ☹ but luckily the next day I felt as good as new, and could celebrate properly (I thank the hotel for that).

On Wednesday, we joined the hotel for dinner. I know, I came to NYC to eat at a bunch of restaurants but found myself eating at the hotel every day. That’s no coincidence! They had just introduced a new, unique drink menu that I was eager to try. The new drink menu consisted of 4 drinks, each based with different liquors but all linked by common theme. They all had an ice sphere in the middle containing added fruit and/or flavors that, once melted, added to the drink. Super interesting and delicious! As dishes began coming out, I was surprised to find that my favorite dish was actually a vegetable (I’m burying this sentence deep in this post so people don’t show up to my house with pitch forks). The Cauliflower tempura with toasted pistachio chili sauce was INCREDIBLE. I could eat 4 of those dishes. Here is a list of the rest of my favorites:

Naughty Fork Recommended Dinner

Cauliflower Tempura Toasted Pistachio Chili Paste
Truffle Flat Bread: Shaved Summer Truffles, Boursin Cheese Truffle Duxel
Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe: House Made Pasta, Poached Egg Fennel Pollen, Cracked Pepper
Seared King Salmon: Vegetable Caponata, Greek Yogurt Tomato Velvet, Pea Tendrils

Now, for the main part of every meal, we will discuss dessert. I loved the ice cream sandwich and their coconut rice pudding. Both were simple, yet the plates were cleared within 30 seconds of them being placed on the table. There’s always room for dessert, right?On the day that we were leaving, we headed up to the penthouse to take some super “candid” Instagram pictures of ourselves with the awesome view in the background. It was the best way to end a trip. As a visitor of NYC, you can’t really wrap your head around the hustle and bustle of the city, especially when viewed from the top. NoMo gave us the ability to see the city without standing in a 3-hour line, dealing with unruly people, or buying tickets while also feeding us amazing food and situating itself in the most convenient area. I don’t usually spend this much time talking about hotel experiences, but NYC visitors need to check out this hotel. I could go on and on but I’ll stop here because its making wish I was back in New York. When I go back to the city, you know where to find me (more specifically in the dining area).
