Seasoned Fine-Dining Chef to Launch NOMO KITCHEN

New York, NY (July 07, 2015) – New independent luxury property, NOMO SOHO, has today announced the appointment of Chef Salaam as its Executive Chef. Effective immediately, Chef Salaam is developing the concept for the hotel’s new restaurant, NOMO KITCHEN, and working on a variety of menus composed of bright, nuanced flavors that reflect his globally-inspired approach to cooking and commitment for working with seasonal ingredients. In the spirit of the property’s name, an abbreviation for “nostalgic + modern,” Chef Salaam will introduce a seemingly familiar-sounding menu of classic items to NOMO SOHO that will be executed in a highly unexpected and fresh way and draws inspiration from SoHo and surrounding neighborhoods. While launching NOMO KITCHEN is Salaam’s main priority he will also be responsible for all in-room dining and special events.

Under Chef Salaam’s direction, NOMO SOHO is set to become a destination for those craving a world-class dining experience wrapped up with a cool, downtown vibe that pays homage to SoHo’s storied past while celebrating its vibrancy today. By working with only the freshest produce, meats, and fish available, Chef Salaam will let natural flavors of individual ingredients shine through. Dishes will combine a mix of savory bites and light textures to ensure diners are exposed to a myriad of dining options that satisfy every palate. To date, NOMO SOHO is working with more than thirty hand-selected vendors – which will change seasonally throughout the year.

“Chef Salaam brings to NOMO SOHO a rich and diverse culinary background, stemming from his experiences of cooking around the world and working with some of New York City’s most celebrated chefs such as Michel Richard and Laurent Tourondel,” said Graham Leslie, Head of Hospitality and Chief Executive of NOMO SOHO. “We are delighted with his creative talent and fresh approach to cuisine that matches our NOMO SOHO style: menus complete with wonderful flavors and fresh organic items including gluten-free dishes that will appeal to our guests and SoHo neighbors and continue celebrating the downtown neighborhood we embrace as our home” he concluded.
