321 W. 4th St., Winston-Salem
HOURS: Sun.–Wed. 11 a.m.–midnight, Thurs.–Sat. 11 a.m.–1 a.m.
NOMA, named for the restaurant’s location on North Marshall Street, serves lunch and dinner ($15–21), but it’s the brunch menu that stands out.
The owners, husband-and-wife team Chris and Kathleen Barnes, have come up with a creative menu that includes tempura strawberries (strawberries dipped in a sweet batter made from brown sugar and Grand Marnier then fried and served with homemade lemon syrup) and orange dreamsicle crepes (warm crepes topped with orange segments and orange dreamsicle sauce) that have locals lining up for a table on the weekends.
Brunch is served Sunday 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Reservations are recommended.
