    I too found brunch there to be underwhelming.

    Happy Hour: De-Novo Bistro & Bar
    Wednesday June 27, 2012 8:45 PM
    By Jesse Tigges

    There’s a lot to like about De-Novo Bistro & Bar. The classy interior features a relaxed atmosphere and modern-art eye candy. The uber-soft barstools invite you to stay for a few drinks. And the Columbus Commons-adjacent location offers a nice landscape that’s only a short walk for Downtown office workers. With all that said, the happy hour is one of the best things about the restaurant.

    Had dinner here with a friend for the first time in late May and enjoyed it very much. We were really impressed with the interior and “cozy” patio area facing South High Street. My companion thought that the service could have been a bit more polished but overall it was friendly and rather well executed. The food was very good; I had the vegetable stack while my companion had the fish, which he said was cooked to perfection and tasted wonderful. Although it was quite pricey, de NOVO is a great addition to the dining scene in Columbus and I hope that they continue to do well.

    I had some drunk brunch here this past Saturday and thought it was great! Though admittedly service was a bit slow, but I’m never really in a hurry for brunch. Especially when there is vodka and champagne involved.

    Review: de-NOVO Bistro & Bar

    de-NOVO is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, and serves everything from a $7 pancake platter to a $72 wagyu strip steak. In order to keep this review from being all over the map, I decided to focus my first visit on de-NOVO’s collection of unique small plates that that grace their main menu. And by unique, I really do mean unique.

    New Columbus Chefs: Mike Gadd
    Published on October 17, 2012 1:20 pm
    By: Walker

    de-NOVO is a newer restaurant on the Columbus dining scene, having opened their doors Downtown just under a year ago. The restaurant quickly became a fan favorite here in Columbus Underground, placing 5th on our list of best new restaurants of 2011 after only a month in operation. Mike Gadd became the new executive sous chef at de-NOVO recently, and brings some noteworthy experience to the restaurant despite his young age.

    Went for dinner the other night and it was good – not fantastic like the best of the Short North and GV scene, but solid. A bit overpriced though, considering what you could get for the same amount at one of the top spots in town.

    However, when we ordered a bottle of wine, the waiter appeared with our bottle and a bottle of one of the house’s “featured” wines, which he proceeded to try to sell us instead (for $10 more than the one we ordered). He eventually admitted that management had bought a whole lot of this stuff (unknown aussie blends in the $60-100 range) and no one was buying it unsurprisingly, and so now they were trying to pawn it off. So very hoakie. That, combined with the cheesy elevator jazz muzak.

    We’ve heard positive things about the food but the wine list is why we’ve never been there. Usual suspects with outrageous markups. If you’re going to mark up a wine three or four times over cost and it’s on every grocery store shelf, make sure you’re a chain restaurant first.

    Do you think we can use their stemware and corkscrew too? Great idea!

    yeah, I love it. I wish the city would string lights up in that alley. It would be great if deNovo could have a little patio back there too!

    Restaurant review: Urbane brunches at de-NOVO are a damn good time
    By G.A. Benton
    From the November 21, 2013 edition

    You’ve gotta hand it to Yavonne Sarber. As an apparently tireless owner of the brand new Chez du Bon (expect a review on that place soon), Manifesto and de-NOVO, she’s been ambitiously investing in — and betting on — our Downtown’s revival. So whatever you think about her flamboyant enterprises, the bottom line is if her businesses thrive, it’s great for Columbus. This is why I was glad to discover the fun and urbane Saturday and Sunday brunches (9 a.m.-3 p.m.) now being served at de-NOVO.

    So does this mean they are moving into Highpoint?
