I made mention a while back during my Delaware Dining Detour, that I was unable to go to Nova Restaurant. I did head back with two things in mind – case out the place and eat their beer battered burger.
Nova has a great look. The decor features include raised booths, stainless steel fixtures, two cool U-shaped countered bar areas – that have a diner feel about them, and plenty of hard wood. The place looks great.
The menu is mostly “American Cuisine” with eclectic additions thrown in such sweet potato fries and deep fried macaroni and cheese bites.
The beer battered burger is big – as in tall and wide. The burger is cooked to order, then battered and deep fried – served with two onion rings on top and a mix of two cheeses to hold it all together. You might feel some mild chest pain when you take your first bite but you will get through it.
On my burger scale – which I am creating right now – I give it a 9.5 out of 10 for creativity and sass. I give it an 8 for flavor and cravability. If you are in the neighborhood, this is worth driving for.
