Novikov is a very fancy restaurant in Downtown where most of the people in the large, shiny dining room are wearing suits and spending incredible amounts of money on a really big menu of mostly Chinese and Japanese dishes. The food here is just OK in some places (like the spicy prawn moneybags) and actually pretty good in others (like the Peking duck and the majority of the nigiri selection). Also, their wasabi martini is delicious. But there aren’t many situations where we’d ever want to eat in a restaurant that feels like a sentient hedge fund who also DJs on the side - even if we somehow weren’t paying for it.
