Ex-Toko and Heston Blumenthal crew open new Surry Hills cellar door


Nomad, a new city-based cellar door located in a turn-of-the century warehouse in Surry Hills, has appointed a rockstar team to shine a spotlight on emerging food and wine regions such as Orange, Mudgee and Canberra.
 
 
Owners Al Yazbek (formerly of Toko) and his partner Rebecca Littlemore have hired in Master of Wine Rob Geddes and Heston Blumenthal alumni Nathan Sazi to look after the wine list and menu respectively.

They have also carried through the local theme with furniture and flatware from Aussie designers Ross Didier (seating), Henry Wilson A-Joints (tables) and Malcolm Greenwood (plates). 
 
 
With an open plan, Nomad can be configured to hold groups of up to 150 people.
 
 
The wines on Nomad inaugural list were chosen from a selection of the best of Australia’s boutique vineyards.
 
Geddes said, “Nomad’s wine list comprises wines that have been ‘grown rather than made’ to show aromatic complexity and flavour detail reflecting their origins and retaining food friendliness. These wines are medium to full bodied with natural acid, moderate alcohol and are food friendly.”
