A new restaurant is coming to Montclair food scene this month. The renowned restaurateur, Demetri Malki (His former restaurants include Table 8 and D’metri’s) is opening the latest addition to his restaurant line up, De Novo European Pub. It will be located inside the historic former Upper Montclair Train Station.
“De Novo will be styled after the family-oriented casual pubs of Europe with menus created by Executive Chef Marika Villik, who headed the kitchens at Malki’s earlier restaurants. Guests can expect a recognizable and comforting menu with house-made breads, small plates, charcuterie, flatbreads, salads, burgers, house-made pastas, entrées and late-night bar bites. De Novo will also offer a selection of tempting housemade desserts created by Pastry Consultant Risa Magid.
“I’m modeling De Novo after the kind of places I want to go after a long day at work,” says 41-year-old Malki with enthusiasm. “Delicious food that appeals to everyone, fairly priced and presented with hospitality. I see commuters grabbing a bite and drinks with the family after the train pulls in; I also see a late-night scene with folks hanging out enjoying summer sangrias and signature cocktails.” “
The menu at De Novo will include small plates ranging from $6-$15; entrées priced up to $20 with a special brunch menu offered on Sundays.
