ABOUT

Nomad presents a "Modern Moroccan" menu based on simplicity, fresh local produce and spice, offering revisions of traditional local cuisine and international dishes with a Moroccan twist, and enough variety for vegetarians, pescetarians, and carnivores alike.

Ideally located just off the Rahba Lakdima spice square (places des épices) in the heart of the Marrakech Medina, the restaurant has been designed to evoke an aura of the late 1950s to early 60s, simultaneously unpretentious yet chic. It is a perfect place for both lunch and dinner, or to simply repose from the hustle and bustle of the souks with a much-needed drink.

On the ground floor are a shop by Chabi Chic and the restaurant’s open kitchen. Up the stairs is the reception area and intimate dinning rooms, and above two levels of terraces offer fantastic views of the spice square, the woman’s square, and the Kotoubia, as well as the Atlas mountain range (when visible between November and May).

Le restaurant Nomad vous présente une carte " marocaine moderne " inspirée des produits et épices locaux, à l'accent mis sur la fraîcheur et la simplicité. Sa cuisine traditionnelle, revisitée de spécialités internationales, offre une sélection très variée pour les végétariens et les pescétarians, ainsi que pour les carnivores.

Idéalement situé à Rahba Lakdima (la place des épices), au coeur même de la médina de Marrakech, le design intérieur, chic et sans prétention, du lieu lui donne l'air d'exister depuis la fin des années 1950 où le début des années 60. C’est l’endroit idéal du déjeuner et/ou du dîner, et à tout moment de la journée pour se rafraîchir du va-et-vient incessant des souks.

Au niveau de la rue se trouvent le boutique Chabi Chic et la cuisine ouverte du restaurant. Suivre les escaliers jusqu'à la réception du restaurant vous invite à découvrir d'intimes salles à manger. Puis au-dessus, les deux niveaux de terrasses offrent une vue merveilleuse sur la place des épices, la place des femmes, la Koutoubia, et la chaîne de l'Atlas visible de novembre à mai.

GUEST CHEFS
Nomad has been running a guest chefs pop up program since October 2104. In which we have had the immense pleasure to host some extremely talented chefs, all equally phenomenal as people.
A crucial part to achieving this has been our close collaboration with Restaurant 7 in Fès, which runs the holistic Chefs in Residence project that gives in-coming chefs the opportunity to work with Morocco’s extraordinary produce, herbs and spices and interact with traditional cooks, farmers and producers.
With a strong focus on using local, seasonal ingredients, the chefs work, as far as is possible, exclusively with produce and ingredients found within the local markets or nearby farms. The aim is to evolve Modern Moroccan cuisine through the cross-pollination of culinary cultures. The goal is not to reproduce traditional dishes such as tagine or couscous, but to help drive an already strong culinary culture into the next chapter of its history through the exchange of ideas and knowledge.

“It’s an exciting time to be working in food in this country,” says Restaurant 7 owner Steven Di Renza. “Just as has happened in Spain, France and the UK, we believe that Moroccan cuisine has the potential to become the next new-wave gastronomic heavyweight.

Dear visitors, we are currently implementing some new features to the Nomad website. During this period of updates, some parts of the websites will not be available. We apologizes for the inconvenience and hope you will love the website once finished. Thanks for your patience.

At Nomad, we feel a responsibility to be actively involved in local culture and the local community. As such we are involved with various projects:
18, Multidisciplinary Cultural Riad
Nomad is proud to be one of the main sponsors of this organization, which is at the forefront of the city’s burgeoning art scene. Please see their website for more information and to arrange visits.
3ème Millénaire
This highly impressive women’s association runs various co-ops that empower local women and improve their social and financial standing. We work with one of their co-ops who supply our gluten free millet and corn hand rolled couscous, for which we happily pay a premium price, knowing the benefits it gives to these local women.
We are happy to arrange visits to the co-op where clients can engage with the women and learn to make their own couscous by hand and eat a small feast. We work with another of the co-ops that supply us with our organic chicken. We helped them complete the place and provide them with all our kitchen waste as chicken food.
Nomad Association
Presently Nomad is setting up an association to work with under privileged youth. We will update the information on this once said association is up and running.
