Nomad was, imo, already a step down from Amano, Keste and Motorino, but it looks like Stalin's departure to open the Philadelphia location has had an especially damaging effect. I've heard that Amano had some growing pains after Roberto left for Manhattan, but I don't think it was ever this bad.
I wanted to confirm that this wasn't the new Philly location by making sure that the oven there isn't blue. It isn't. It's a Mugnaini http://pennappetit.blogspot.com/2012/02/night-at-nomad.html
Stalin is a member of this forum, I believe, and a really nice guy, and I know that he's capable of a formidable pie, but, between the photos I'm seeing here and the Mugnaini, I wouldn't necessarily say that Nomad is creatively dead, but I do think any chance at national acclaim is looking slim.
