This nomad is quite particular in its wanderings. With wine, it makes a statement (and a virtue) of sticking in Australia. With food, it walks the highways and byways of Spain and north Africa, weaving together a large menu of dishes that read rustic but present with polish. An Arabic-style tartare swaps the lamb you'd expect for beef, with cracked wheat, a quenelle of baba ghanoush and other apt condiments, all piled on potato crisps. The hot sauce that comes with it, like the charcuterie (not bad), bread (quite good) and some of the cheese (excellent) is made in-house. Chef Nathan Sasi's interest in process, and the large and able team behind him mean the quality of food pumped into this big, buzzy space remains high. That bigness means service ranges from stellar to "hey fella", but for a place that could come off as a restaurant-by-committee, Nomad has a lot of heart. Bring a posse, go big, and make the most of it.
