New Neighbor: Made Nice

Made Nice, the newest restaurant by Will Guidara and Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad Hotel, opened to much fanfare on April 24.  At Made Nice, customers experience the essence of these Flatiron fine dining favorites in a relaxed and social environment. 

"The Flatiron neighborhood has been such an important part of our company with Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad that we wanted to bring Made Nice to life right here as well," said Kirk Kelewae, General Manager at Made Nice. "With the opening of Made Nice, we’re bringing the recipes and philosophies that we have always practiced to an accessibly priced, counter service restaurant."

The offerings at Made Nice hone in on culinary technicalities that make a dish stand out - such as the right way to roast a beet, pickle a carrot, or cook a grain. Bowls on the menu include the Cod Provencal, with seared cod, chickpea puree, and braised fennel, the Pork N’ Carrots, consisting of confit pork shoulder, warm grains, and roasted carrots, or yet, the Curry Cauliflower, featuring cauliflower stew, tofu, and couscous, among other seasonal options. The restaurant also stocks house-made sodas and a curated list of beer and wine on tap.

The space, with its floor-to-ceiling mural of graphics and bright colors designed by Shepard Fairey, creates an inviting space for diners to enjoy their meal. The restaurant also collaborated with jazz artist Jon Batiste for the musical inspiration behind Made Nice. Together, this creates the casual ambience fit for a grab-and-go lunch, or relaxed meal during the day. Kelewae explained, "Our hope is to reach many, many more members of our community with a restaurant that can be a part of someone’s weekly, if not daily, routine," 

Hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Closed on Sundays.
