Cafe NOVA Restaurant Review: Situated in the heart of Oklahoma City’s restaurant row, this urban spot distinguishes itself with its eclectic menu, light and breezy space bedecked with stainless steel and mirrors, black linen tablecloths and fresh flowers gracing the tables. The kitchen keeps an eye out for the latest culinary trends, reflected in the changing menu, which extols seasonal ingredients. Salad connoisseurs will delight in options like the roasted beet salad, featuring crumbled goat cheese, pistachios and baby spinach in a pistachio vinaigrette. Past entrée favorites include a pecan-crusted tilapia coupled with spinach risotto infused with a fire-roasted-tomato vinaigrette, and the mahi mahi paired with curried grilled vegetables in a cilantro lime coulis. Nova’s lunch options, some priced at a thrifty $6.99, are a steal. The wine and beer list includes a pleasing mix of international choices as well as several local selections. The Champagne brunch trumpets bottomless mimosas.
