Inspired by his mother’s heritage, Scott Conant brings the traditional Italian coffeehouse to New York City at Impero Caffé, the signature restaurant at INNSIDE New York NoMad. Tasked with the hotel’s food and cocktails, Conant serves a variety of classic dishes in a relaxed and inviting venue that already stands out in NoMad’s thriving restaurant scene.
For early risers, Impero prepares an assortment of pastries and espresso drinks before transitioning to lunch and dinner service. Conant is especially known for his house-made pastas, which appear in signature dishes like pasta al pomodor with his special ragu sauce and cavatelli with braised duck and black truffle sugo.
If your visit to NoMad is limited on time, a selection of the dining menu is available for in-room dining. For those who like to sit at the bar, Conant also prepared a separate menu with classic antipasti and desserts, accompanied by a list of specialty cocktails and an assortment of local drafts.
The head chef at INNSIDE is no stranger to great food, with multiple restaurants and awards under his belt, in addition to appearances on Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Chopped and Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
You’ve seen the signs at the airport and watched with envy as other travelers sped through security and/or passport control, but what exactly are these programs so many travelers use to breeze in and out of airports, and how do they differ?
Somewhere between Paris, Provence and the border with Switzerland is the charming riverside city of Lyon, a burgeoning culinary capital in a country with one of the world’s best cuisines. Lyon’s reputation as a food destination grew within the past decade, and visitors flock to the less-crazed and friendlier town for a more laid-back approach to French cuisine.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
