Located in the emerging area of Nomad, there is a place that allows you to do anything you please. With a minimalist-chic design, the Arlo Nomad Hotel apart from its purposeful designed rooms, offers various communal spaces.
Arlo is the urban explorer’s living room away from home; workshop away from the office; where inspiration lies waiting to be discovered and the adventure is up to you — experiencenomad.com
Entering the lobby, there is Bodega, a grab-and-go counter offering everything from coffee to pizza by the slice. And this is just the beginning. Arlo recently launched the Massoni, a brick-walled restaurant by Chef Dale Talde, featuring Italian-ish cuisine. Its eclectic vibe and delicious food make Massoni the perfect place for a unique New York City street food.
As for the food menu, I really enjoyed their breakfast dishes. You should definitely try the scrambled eggs with crumbled bacon and cheddar. Best part? All the toasts are served on a crunchy Bien Cuit Whole Grain Bread.
I would also suggest getting the Breakfast Sandwich, with avocado, bacon and eggs with “Srirancha” ketchup. For those with a sweet tooth, I would recommend the Nutella Toast with grapes, caramelized bananas and cinnamon whipped cream.
The hotel also features a second floor lounge bar, BARIo, with a rotating cocktail list where you can relax by enjoying some of the small bites offered by the Massoni restaurant.
On the same floor, you can find the Studio, a multi-use common area which serves as a working space throughout the day and a hang out space with a selection of boardgames during the night.
Last but not least, there is a seasonal rooftop bar called The Heights, with spectacular views of both downtown and uptown Manhattan where you can enjoy a drink and bites when the weather is nice.
