Nosh, open only since the start of summer, has gained recognition for their diverse flavor profiles, their take on comfort and classic recipes and beautifully presented dishes and cocktails.  The impressive interior has a NYC vibe with high ceilings, impressive woodwork and an electrifying chandelier hanging above the large 3-sided bar.
When the Specked Scallops are delivered to your table, the first thing you are likely to do is grab your camera to take a picture of this beautiful dish.  This is a dish you want to post and share out to others on social media, bragging about what you are about to eat.  The risotto is made with an asparagus puree that keeps it light and fresh tasting.  Jumbo scallops are carefully placed atop the risotto and 2 crispy pieces of smoked prosciutto call out for your attention in the center of the plate.  A brown butter is then drizzled over the top adding a nuttiness to the dish.  Don’t forget about the charred half lemon that you should squeeze over the top of your dish prior to taking your first bite.  Chef Joe Zolnierowski explains that you should get a bite of everything in one spoonful. The food is meant to be “interactive and fun.”  Each ingredient is important and balances the flavor profile of the dish.
