NoHo Bar & Grill

Inspired by the vibrant streets of New York’s North of Houston Street neighbourhood, NoHo Bar & Grill – in the InterContinental in the UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah – elevates American cuisine to new heights.

As the sun sets over stunning sea views, NoHo seamlessly transitions from a relaxed daytime haven to a lively nightlife hub, offering a captivating dining experience like no other.

With live entertainment, expertly crafted cocktails, a carefully curated wine selection, and a tantalizing array of gastro-pub offerings, NoHo Bar & Grill is the epitome of a culinary oasis.

The kitchen, under the guidance of a newly appointed chef, presents a tantalising selection of small plates that will transport your taste buds across the Atlantic.

Each dish is a masterpiece, skillfully crafted with the freshest ingredients and bursting with flavours that dance harmoniously on your palate.

The Tortilla Tower brings crispy layers generously stacked with a delicious medley of black bean salsa, sour cream, guacamole, tomato salsa, and smoked cheddar cheese.

With each bite, the textures intertwine, giving way to the creamy richness of the guacamole, the tangy notes of the salsa, and the bold smokiness of the cheddar cheese.

For cheese aficionados, the Caramelized Goat Cheese Salad is another sublime choice. Picture a bed of fresh greens adorned with delicate morsels of dairy.

As you savour the first bite, the velvety cheese melts on your tongue, its rich and tangy profile complemented by the sweetness of cherry tomatoes.

The addition of walnuts adds a delightful crunch, while the Dijon mustard and honey dressing drizzled over the salad lend a luscious and mildly sweet finish.

The presentation is equally impressive, with the vibrant colors and textures artfully arranged on the plate.

The Tuna Ceviche Tostadan is another highlight, with the freshness of the sea enveloping your senses, complemented by the shallots’ mild pungency.

The yuzu mayo adds a creamy tanginess, while the bursts of tobiko deliver a delightful pop of briny goodness.

A hint of passion fruit lingers on the palate, adding a touch of tropical sweetness that perfectly balances the savory notes. The crispy tostada provides a satisfying crunch, completing this exquisite culinary experience.

The vibrant presentation of this dish is a work of art, with the colorful ingredients arranged meticulously on the tostada, showcasing the kitchen team’s attention to detail.

Among the main courses, the Fettuccine alla Puttanesca is another must-order. Al dente fettuccine strands are enrobed in a vibrant basil tomato sauce, brimming with olives, capers, and anchovies.

Each forkful reveals a tantalizing combination of bold and robust flavors, with the salty tang of the olives and capers perfectly balanced by the umami-rich anchovies.

The aromatic basil and the acidity of the tomato sauce provide a harmonious backdrop, allowing the flavors to shine. The dish is elegantly presented, with the fettuccine gracefully twirled on the plate, adorned with the vibrant sauce and garnished with fresh basil leaves.

To complement your dining experience, NoHo Bar & Grill offers an impressive selection of signature cocktails. The North of Houston, a house special, entices with its premium gin, aperol, godo umeshu, and dashes of homemade plum bitters, all artfully smoked to perfection.

The presentation of this cocktail is as captivating as its flavour, with a swirling mist dancing around the glass, teasing your senses.

For a refreshing option, the Ginger Kiss delights with its homemade ginger lime blend, anejo tequila, and orange liqueur, creating a harmonious balance of zesty and sweet. Served over ice with a vibrant citrus twist, it is a cocktail that demands attention.

NoHo Bar & Grill takes great pride in its attention to detail and the artful presentation of its dishes. Each plate is meticulously crafted, showcasing the culinary team’s skill and their commitment to creating a feast for both the taste buds and the eyes.

As you indulge in the exceptional cuisine, the stylish surroundings and the buzzing atmosphere elevate your dining experience to new heights.
