Pateras

What began 30 years ago, as a four month traveling trip, culminated in what is today, a menu designed to take  you to many cuisines – The Mediterranean, Southeast Asia and Latin America – tied together by what a meandering, somewhat adventurous backpacker – a Nomad – would want to eat.

Nomad celebrates vibrant dishes found all over these regions, respecting the indigenous flavors, and doing it al in a modern way.
