- Novita Bistro is a casual, BYOB with Mediterranean influenced dishes located at 1608 South Street in the Graduate Hospital section of Center City Philadelphia.
Novita was established in 2008 by Moroccan born Hassan Zanzoul & Hatim Saaboul. This space was recently transformed into a quaint BYOB seating up to 40 guests & featuring an open kitchen.
Chef Hassan Zanzoul developed a love of Mediterranean food while he worked as a chef in Taormina, Italy from 1987 until 1996. Upon his return, Hassan received formal training in Italian & French cuisine from the French Culinary Institute in New York City. While working toward his certification, he was selected to go to Paris to complete an internship. Before moving to Philadelphia, Hassan worked as Executive Chef at Silver Spoon Cafe in Branchburg, New Jersey. Novita's menu includes simple, traditional dishes combining fresh ingredients from local vendors with rich herbs & spices.
We hope to see you soon!
