In 1977 John Gianaras purchased the L&F Corner Market and turned it into a casual dining restaurant named Panos’ (after his father.) In 1988, newlyweds John and Vi expanded and remodeled the space into a fine-dining California-Greek restaurant. They operated the ever-popular Panos' for a total of 20 years. Flash-forward 17 years... the Gianaras family has reclaimed the space, with daughters Kristen and Kathryn running the show. This time around, NOVY offers a casual and affordable menu of California cuisine, alongside a few of our Greek family favorites, that is fresh, local and organic whenever possible. All of our beer & wine is on tap to do our part in eliminating waste. NOVY, our nickname for Noe Valley, is again a family-owned, neighborhood restaurant that strives to provide a fun, comfortable and polished dining experience.
