Best Italian Restaurants in Nomad: What to Order to Drink?
This summer’s forecast: 99 percent chance of Aperol Spritzes. The cocktail menu at Spritz Nomad features different twists on the spritz. We started with the Spritz Tower. That right, a tower filled with 4 types of Spritzes: Amalfi Spritz, Fresca Pera, Nomad Aperol Spritz and a Negroni. 4 Spritzes are better than 1, right? You can also get beer or wine.
Just look at how gorgeous these cocktails are? You can’t go wrong with a traditional Aperol Spritz.
If you are feeling adventurous, try one of the other flavors.
Our second drink was the jumbo Aperol Spritz. We didn’t think anything could top the Aperol Spritz Tower, but then we got this supersized cocktail. You can split it amongst two or four. Whose counting, it’s only one glass, right? Raise your glass, and say “Cin Cin” to an evening you’ll want to repeat over and over.

You don’t know hamachi I love this. We dined in Spritz Nomad‘s outdoor patio, which features a gorgeous Amalfi lemon yellow mural. This shared plate style Italian dining experience lets you sample many dishes. We started with the Chef’s Trio of Cheese, Salumi Board and Hamachi Crudo. The Crudo was our favorite. It was well balanced with citrus from the orange and heat from the Jalapeño. The Gran Pepe, Nocciolo and Taleggio cheeses were also rich and creamy.
Slice, slice baby. Next we tried the Neapolitan-style thin crust Figura and Proscuitto Pizza. This white pizza with fig jam is delicious. If only half your party eats proscuitto, you can always ask for it on the side. We devoured this pizza without the proscuitto, but our friends enjoyed the pizza with it.
Your the ravi-only one for me. For the mains, we shared the Whole Branzino, the Chicken Breast, Cheese Ravioli and Seasonal Mushrooms. All of these dishes were fantastic, but our favorite was the Ravioli. It’s pretty rich, so all you need is a bite or two of this heavenly pasta. It paired nicely with the fish and chicken, which were both perfectly cooked. The mushrooms were a perfect side too. These might be some of the best mushrooms, we’ve had in NYC.
I tira-miss-you. We were the first to try Spritz’s new dessert: Tiramisu in a terra cotta plant with rosemary sprigs. This gorgeous dessert was almost too pretty to eat. We only like to take a bite or two of a dessert, but we ate way more than that from this Tiramisu.
There cannoli be you. We also ordered the Mini Cannoli. These little bites of Italian heaven are a must have dessert too.
Aperol showers bring May flowers. This spring, escape from the hustle and bustle of NYC and head over to Spritz Nomad for a coastal Italian dining experience. Their dishes are elevated and shareable and this spot is great for a date night, ladies night and even a group happy hour. You can also check out our NYC Restaurant section for more recommendations.
Start the day with a smile, end it with a Spritz.Anonymous
