Just over a month since a fire kitchen closed Sydney’s lowkey fave fancy restaurant, Nomad has found a place to live for a short time while its original home gets a rebuild and facelift.
As per Broadsheet, the restaurant that’s perfect for a special date night or to impress your parents when they’re in town will be reopening for three months as Nomad Up The Road, in the space that was home to Longrain until earlier this year, and where Adelaide’s Orana popped up for a residency in July.

Today our beautiful restaurant had a fire in the kitchen. We are very grateful no one was injured and @nswfireservice and @nswpolice arrived quickly and ensured the safety of our neighbours and team. To our guests who were booked in today, tonight and tomorrow we are so sorry we are unable to honour your reservation. We look forward to opening ASAP to continue wining and dining you for many moons to come. Until we can assess the damage we cannot give any more information. See you soon at #nomadsydney ⭐️
Though it’s in a slightly different space up the road from Number 16 Forster St, Nomad will make the in-between place feel like home with a lot of the furniture and artwork salvaged from the original venue while it gets a refresh.
The menu is going to be a little different as there’s no woodfire oven or flame grill at 85 Commonwealth St, so the Nomad team are working out a new range of shared dishes and small plates to keep punters satisfied and well-fed.
Despite being closed from mid-September, Nomad still picked up a Good Food chef hat this year, making it five years running that it’s been a recognised hatted eatery in Australia.
Nomad Up The Road is set to open its doors from November 1st for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday, and we’ll keep you updated on when the original Forster St restaurant will be back up and running.Image: Instagram / @nomadsydney
