Located in Kansas City's Historic Westside near the Crossroads Arts District, Novel delivers novel dishes, or "Novel American Cuisine" to the Kansas City food landscape.

Chef and Owner, Ryan Brazeal, has been recognized by food publications such as Food & Wine, Bon Appetit and Feast Magazine for outstanding and imaginative decadent creations, nominated for Best New Chef and Best New American Restaurant to name just a few.

"When I say we are doing something original and new I don’t mean we are revolutionizing the industry, or doing something unprecedented, I simply mean that the dishes we conceive and cook are our own.  They borrow all sorts of influence and we owe credit to all the teachers and cooks and chefs that came before us, but they were our novel ideas."      

- Ryan Brazeal, Novel Chef and Owner​​
