Local restaurateur Kamal Laftimi (Café des Épices, Le Jardin) has teamed up with Sebastian de Gzell to bring you Nomad, a restaurant that feels like the place you always dreamt you would find in the Marrakech Medina.
Interior architect Romain Menier’s design exude an unassuming timelessness that evokes an aura of the late 50s to early 60s, simultaneously unpretentious yet chic.
The street level shop is a collaboration between Nomad and local design label Chabi Chic, offering beautifully packaged quality spices, oils and purposefully designed house/kitchen wear for use by the restaurant itself.
Beyond the shop, an open kitchen beckons you in to follow the stairs up to the restaurant reception area and intimate dinning rooms.
Above, you will find the two levels of terraces with 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).
The cuisine is Modern Moroccan, with a menu based on local produce and spices, focusing on freshness and simplicity and offering enough variety for vegetarians, pescetarians, carnivores alike.
Nomad 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.
