Make It Nice

The NoMad

Led by Chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, this restaurant group includes Eleven Madison Park, The NoMad, and Made Nice. The NoMad restaurant, resident in the NoMad hotel, is a Michelinstarred restaurant and sister to the group’s Eleven Madison Park, 2017 No. 1 restaurant in the world by World’s 50 Best, recipient of three Michelin stars, and winner of numerous James Beard Foundation Awards.


The growing program developed for the NoMad restaurant focused on high volume growth of flavor-forward produce for specified menu offerings for a duration of 10 weeks. Produce grown in house was used regularly for service. SproutsIO was also used for tableside service in the dining room and for kitchen tours and experiences for select guests.

Barbara Lynch Gruppo

No. 9 Park & Menton

James Beard Award-winner, Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef, and Time 100 Most Influential Person, Chef Barbara Lynch is regarded as one of Boston’s - and the country’s - leading chefs and restaurateurs. Established in 1998, the Barbara Lynch Gruppo encompasses seven celebrated restaurants.


Growing programs were developed for both No. 9 Park and Menton for a duration of eight weeks to address two different objectives. No. 9 Park sought consistent reliable delivery of high quality produce for the restaurant’s signature dish, Prune Stuffed Gnocchi - a menu highlight since 1998. Menton sought diversity of difficult to access micro-produce for research and menu development.

Growing Program

Non-GMO, organic certified: No. 9 Park: Chervil, Parisian Carrots, Mint Menton: Lovage, Nasturtium, Mint, Cress, Violas, Rainbow Chard, Chervil, Red Mustard, Broccoli Greens, Arugula



We harvest as we need using 100% of the product and use the freshest possible product.
It really surprised me how fast they have grown. I grow a few herbs on the roof as well, and it has been amazing to see the growth difference.
The chervil harvested was better than the chervil we buy from our suppliers. Fantastic flavor!
Teaching the team about ‘seed to sprout’ is a priceless thing. They respect the product more and understand more about the product. I feel it is the best way to cook.
The quality of the plants we grew, color and shape, are just really beautiful.
Yes! It really turns some heads in the dining room. Having the units in the dining room has a lot of potential.
