Nopa’s now got outdoor dining.Nopa’s now got outdoor dining. One of my favorite things to do in normal times is sit at the busy bar pre- or post- shows at the Independent, and hunker down at the counter with a nice thick juicy rosy hued burg—truly one of my favs in the city (also in my burg guide). Smashies are great and all, but pumping out a bounty of big bois on a busy night and achieving that perfect pink med rare center every time using a wood fired grill—that’s a whole other lvl.Vege tagine is a menu mainstay and good move if you’re vegetarian, vegan (omit the yogurt), need vegetables, and/or its cold (it was cold); but the grilled broccoli with breadcrumbs and anchovy vinaigrette is the sleeper pfg dish on the menu—smokey crispy lemony umami delicious.
