At LittleMad, you can add caviar, uni, and/or truffles to every dish, sort of like how you’d add parmesan crisps to a salad at Sweetgreen. But this spot in Nomad from the team behind Atoboy and Her Name is Han is actually pretty casual. The mostly-concrete space has an industrial feel—with scuffed floors, an open kitchen, and a soundtrack that leans heavily on Outkast—and the menu is full of French and Korean-inspired small plates that are meant to be shared. Want a crispy pig ear salad with (optional) Burgundy truffle? Or how about a mandu/chou farci mashup in a silky lobster sabyon with a big dollop of caviar? The correct answer to both of these questions is yes. Bring a friend, share a bunch of things, and be sure to get the bowl of rice packed with caramelized mushrooms and big globs of bone marrow. Maybe even add some uni.
