Fine dining French cuisine is served with a golden glow from formal dining rooms in Les Nomades' townhouse setting. At this jacket-required restaurant, dishes like seared foie gras with strawberry balsamic reduction and caramel foam intrigue the tastebuds, as does bison strip loin in red wine garlic sauce, all paired with a selection from their nationally-awarded wine list.
