Novo in San Luis Obispo- A Gluten Free Gem

I love San Luis Obispo, CA for so many reasons; it’s a beautiful town with an appreciation for fresh healthy food and a growing list of gluten free options. I am proud to say I enjoyed another gluten free meal without the worry of cross contamination and sickness this past weekend.

My boyfriend and I celebrated Easter with a gourmet brunch at one of our favorite spots, Novo. This Central Coast favorite sits overlooking the Downtown creek with patio seating, fresh local food and an incredible blend of Brazilian, Mediterranean and Asian flavors. 

The restaurant/wait staff has always been very accommodating of my diet and has willingly altered several of their most popular dishes. We have visited Novo several times over the years but I was thrilled to see the newly noted 'gfo' (gluten free on request) present on several of their brunch items. Although I feel I have become very diligent in my food choices, it is always nice to have a little assurance along the way.

We started with a few brunch cocktails, Mark a Bakon Bloody Mary, I, a Bellini. Nibbled on our favorite appetizer the Trio, a gourmet assortment of aged cheeses, fresh fruit, candied nuts and local honeycomb. Indulged in our thoughtfully selected main dishes, Mark enjoyed the Eggs Arnold (can be made gluten free on request, ‘gfo’) and my favorite the Grilled Salmon Salad (can be made gluten free,’gfo’ and vegan on request, ‘vo'. And finished with a classic dessert, creme brulee.

Novo has always impressed us with the service, atmosphere and gourmet dishes. I recommend this Central Coast eatery for brunch, lunch or dinner for all appetites, especially gluten free ones.

It’s my favorite piece of Downtown San Luis Obispo and Mark and I will forever justify a reason to frequent Novo, a special occasion, celebrating a birthday or just to simply enjoy one of SLO’s gems.
