I am so excited to share this restaurant with you today–I just can’t believe its taken me so long!
Novo is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in SLO. They have a breathtaking outdoor patio on the creek, wonderful food, and expansive beer, wine, and cocktail menus. We’ve celebrated so many wonderful events in our lives there–birthdays, engagement parties, family coming to visit and we even had our rehearsal dinner on their outdoor patio! It will definitely be one of the places I miss the most when we leave.
The one downside to the restaurant is that there is limited indoor seating. However, the patio has powerful heaters and you can even ask for a blanket if you want a little extra warmth.
Their menu is a mix of things as they focus on “worldwide cuisine.” Some of my favorites include their Grilled Salmon Salad, pork carnitas sopes, and chow novo.
Last time I was there, I had the chicken chow novo: noodles stir fried with market fresh vegetables, garlic & ginger.
Jeff loves their thai green chicken curry: light and subtle coconut milk curry finished with cilantro and fresh green chilis.
Having dinner there is a bit of a splurge, but totally worth the indulgence every once and awhile.
If you’re ever in SLO, you seriously need to check them out. Check out their menu on their website here!
