NoMad Library, Las Vegas
Dine among scholarly opulence…all the books on all the shelves are real, and you are encouraged to take them off the shelf to peruse…while sipping on your favorite beverage or waiting for your dinner courses to arrive.
Monday nights are for library dining. The NoMad Roast Chicken is offered as part of a generous three-course curated dinner for two for $100. And if that isn’t enough of a great value, Mondays also feature half price select bottles from the wine cellar. (not valid on holidays)
Note that this NoMad roast chicken recipe is not the same as the famous New York original developed a decade ago by Chef Daniel Humm stuffed with foie gras and black truffles. It’s not nearly as fancy, it’s more rustic – with chorizo, saffron rice, and mushrooms – but still really quite exceptional!
The NoMad Library is a soaring space, inspired by the iconic Library of NoMad New York. NoMad is named for the neighborhood NOrth of MADison Square Park. The robust Las Vegas menu celebrates American classics in a grand and continental way. In addition to the chicken, another Specialty of the House for Two is an American Wagyu Prime Rib rubbed with porcini and black garlic.
Situated on the top four floors (29 through 32) of the former Monte Carlo Casino Resort building, the NoMad Hotel shares the space with its sister property, the Park MGM Las Vegas.
From the beautiful, luxurious ambience – to the impeccable, genial yet professional service – to the impressive dishes that well exceeded our expectations for a humble chicken dinner – the entire experience was fun, cool, and accessible. And those fabulous popovers were an outstanding surprise to boot!

STAG’S LEAP WINE CELLARS
2019 KARIA Chardonnay Napa Valley
This is a graceful Chardonnay with aromas of citrus and subtle tropical fruit notes along with apricot, toasted almonds and orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has a silky texture and refreshing and flavorful finish with a touch of minerality.
2020 Sainte Claire Chablis
Grand Vin de Bourgogne
The 2020 Jean-Marc Sainte Claire Chablis is clean, bright, and zesty on the palate. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of citrus zest and mineral notes. Sourced from a single vineyard of 30-year-old, organically farmed vines, it’s a fresh, cutting lime and lemon sip with a long, delightfully chalky finish.
2019 Pinot Noir PLACIDA VINEYARD Russian River Valley
This Pinot Noir has aromas of red fruits, coffee and fresh herbs. There’s a pleasing hint of mocha and subtle earthy undertones.
Neyers Pinot Noir ‘Placida Vineyard’ is a wine from grapes grown on the Russian River parcel that Chuy Ordaz planted 15+ years ago. He used ‘Heirloom’ budwood from the original Joseph Swan vineyard in Forestville. Joe had brought the cuttings for his vineyard directly from France more than 65 years ago. This wine from Chuy’s Placida Vineyard in Russian River attractively expresses both old world and California character.
