Novo_Logo_Color 350Wine Enthusiast Magazine recently published their annual list of top 100 wine restaurants in America and our very own Novo Restaurant and Lounge has made the cut.  Novo Sommelier and Justin Brody were approached by the magazine some months back with questions about the wine program and menu style. Even though Novo was being seriously considered, the news is still a big shock as it is listed with only two other central coast restaurants, Les Marchands in Santa Barbara and Manresa in Los Gatos. The full list can be found here:

“Our goal simple, we want to make wine accessible to everyone,” Brody said. “We do this by focusing on wines both local and international that represent the true expression of the grape from the region that it was grown. We strive to ensure that each and every selection offered drinks better than the price that we charge and that each wine chosen has the ability to not only pair with the cuisine offered, but to enhance the dining experience of our guests.”

On July 10 Novo owner, Robin Covey, will attend the wine enthusiast announcement event at Narcissa in New York City.  It is an honor and a privilege to highlight San Luis Obispo and the new wine region of the central coast.

Novo is a diverse dining destination in both cuisine and setting. Novo offers a friendly and relaxed environment to enjoy an intimate meal or group gathering.  With beautiful creekside ambiance, a worldwide menu and true hospitality, Novo is a favorite locale in the heart of downtown SLO.

Novo is located at 726 Higuera Street, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401.
