Tony and Paul - The Nova Kitchen
Tell us about yourself: The Nova Kitchen is a small restaurant owned by two friends Paul and Tony.
Paul is an extensively experienced and well respected British chef working his way through England, Australia and Vancouver before making the Sunshine Coast his home. He has an immense passion for everything related to food - especially locally sourced and sustainable ingredients and has an incredible palate for creating an exquisite dining experience.
Tony is a successful realtor who has worked throughout Vancouver for a number of years but now focuses his work on helping his clients on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. He has an extensive sales background working throughout Australia, Great Britain and Canada and uses his knowledge to provide his clients with exceptional customer service.
Paul and Tony became friends when Tony worked as a Realtor for Paul when he moved to the Sunshine Coast. They developed a strong friendship and identified the need for a restaurant of Nova's standard on the coast - hence the creation of The Nova Kitchen.
Tell us about your business: The Nova Kitchen opened in February of 2016 with an eye towards providing the Sunshine Coast with a unique and extraordinary dining experience in a warm, welcoming and casual atmosphere.
The Nova Kitchen offers Farm 2 Table European inspired West Coast cuisine with a focus on local, sustainable ingredients.
We offer a constantly changing menu of fine West Coast cuisine from esteemed Chef Paul Haldane.
In the summer months our patio is open and our guests can take in incredible views of Keats and Bowen Island as well as the Coast mountains and Salish Sea while enjoying the fresh local fare.
What's your favourite thing about the Sunshine Coast: We can't pick just one thing we love about the Coast.. we love it all - the people, the scenery, the endless outdoor activities you can do, the small town feel, how friendly everyone is, how safe you feel, lack of crime.. we could just go on and on.... its a fantastic place to raise a family and we are so thankful we get to call the sunshine coast home!
