Novita Bistro is a nice change of pace from the overwhelming number of Italian BYOBs throughout Center City and Southwest Center City, Philadelphia. With its emphasis on Mediterranean and Moroccan food, you can enjoy delicious housemade sausages and tagines in their cozy, comfortable dining room. The service is friendly and the chef is quite happy to talk about his food if you catch him by the counter in the open kitchen.
About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
