In a time where grocery stores are often out of stock on staple items, Novo Restaurant & Lounge has transformed into a downtown SLO grocery offering high quality proteins, farmers market fresh produce, artisanal goods, award winning wine, beer, in addition to family meals and takeout service. Robin Covey, Novo’s owner, reminisces that the last time produce was sold in house was back in 1984 when Robin’s Restaurant was still a health food store. He explains “I have such a love for quality produce and secondly, it’s supporting local farmers and providing their products to local people”.
Novo’s cocktails to-go program allows guests to enjoy craft cocktails at home like Lavender Lemonade, the Hellraiser Margarita, Flatliner, and more. Novo’s hours are 11a-7p daily. To order delivery & curbside pickup for groceries, food, cocktails, beer, and wine visit their website www.novorestaurant.com.
