NOVO

Novo is a fantastic restaurant in downtown San Luis Obispo. The food is internationally inspired but locally sourced. The ambiance is what a restaurant should be. The dining is mostly outside on their back patio. It is a large multi-level space located on a creek. In the evenings it is lit up with lights and twinkle lights, adding to the fun, enchanting and romantic feel.

 

The location is in the old Cigar Factory building perched on San Luis Creek in downtown San Luis Obsipo. Their core values are authenticity, enthusiasm and respect. Their staff truly shows these values. The menu is authentic, the staff is friendly and they offer great service every single time.

Novo's ingredients that go into making a great dish don't end with farmers' market-fresh produce, incomparable spice combinations or even the freshest meats and poultry. The Central Coast region, with its mild, Mediterranean climate, has a year-round growing season. Peppers. Lettuces. Beans. Squash. A wide selection of vegetables. Strawberries. Grapes. Oranges. Avocados. Year-round fruits. This is reflected in their delicious menu.

Our favorite menu item is Chow Novo: fresh egg-free noodles, market vegetables, garlic, ginger, soy sauce. They also offer food-allergy friendly noodles which is great. Their desserts are outstanding too from traditional cakes, to delicious truffles bursting with flavor in every bite.
