Do you want to try something non-traditional, something novel? ‘Novel' is the place where you should be dining out tonight. It serves novel American cuisine in traditional settings. The wooden interior and the dim lights make this restaurant a perfect place to have a romantic dinner. It is a bit pricey but the appetizing and tantalizing food served in the mesmerizing ambiance of this restaurant is simply worth the money. It is recommended that you wear a smart casual dress to this restaurant. Dishes that have helped Novel earn a unique position among other restaurants include rabbit sausage, duck neck dumpling, Hamachi Crudo, lamb loin chop and francolin aged grappa. The restaurant is fully packed during dinner time so make a reservation at least one day in advance.

    Nice dining experience. Unique menu selections. Craft cocktails are good. Service is excellent. Expect it to be a little on the loud side with their concrete floors.

    At its new location the restaurant with wall tiles, cement floors, open kitchen and bare packed tables is unsuitable for civilized conversation. The squash soup and scallops (at $8 a piece) are OK but unremarkable. The duck breast with fishy tasty and served cold was chewy and below expectations of this simple preparation . The wine list follows the exaggerated practice of exorbitant pricing over the cost of retail. The misappropriation of definitions was obvious in their ceviche, tomato ceviche? Mexicans and Peruvians must cringe at this travesty. The dessert offering is limited to cakes and other baked goods while their bread portions are stingy and a type of bread that was too moist. Service was uneven. the wine server great but the hostess extremely ornery. Since we had to wait to be seated, even tough the tables were empty, until all four of us had arrived, had the opportunity to watch and hear her and it was not just with us. Her manners were uniformly improper of a place with pretensions of fine dining. Moving away from the rickety old house has improved its higiene (not counting the unhealthy habit of plain wooden table surfaces where silverware rests) but the essence of a restaurant , its food, has not changed much from the old ways. It is below average for a place which seems to aspire as a fine dining experience destination restaurant in a location somewhat isolated of population ( On a Friday evening we could no detect humans nearby except those coming or leaving the premises) and charm but, with plenty of parking spaces.
