Café Nova dazzles eyes with its elegant, modern setting and grumbles stomachs with a rich menu of contemporary American fare. Sample the lackadaisical splendor of the champagne brunch ($15), which pairs an endless supply of mimosas with your choice of a fancy omelette bar, Belgian waffles with maple syrup, or pan-seared tilapia. At lunchtime, try one of Nova’s $10 entrees, all served with soup or salad, such as the Black Angus sliders with caramelized onions or the truffled gnocchi. Dinner guests can steer a forklift-full of shrimp cocktail ($10) into their mouths, then shift teeth gears and blast into a Super Nova Salad ($7) with walnuts, dried cherries, blue cheese, and strawberry vinaigrette. After thoughtfully chewing over a mouth-moistening meal, smash through the drink menu floodgates and bathe in the beverage deluge that results: glasses of Honig sauvignon blanc ($8) or Cycles Gladiator merlot ($7), Chimay Blue beers ($8), and minty mojitos ($7) are just a cupped handful of the available choices.
