Noco Provisions: Comfort Food with a Twist


We joined our friends at Noco Provisions for their soft opening this past week and you’re invited to the Grand Opening on Thursday, July 27th at 3pm. Make your reservation online and see what all the hype is about: Click here. Don’t miss out on amazing food and company!

From grits to smoked duck and keylime desserts, Noco Provisions has a fresh new take on comfort food that begs to be your next craving.  They are located on the corner of Cascade Road and Forest Hills Drive across the street from Forest Hills Foods. Noco is open for brunch, lunch and dinner with options for the wee ones too. There’s enough of a variety to make everyone in your party happy yet not overwhelm you with choices.

“Rooted in everyday approachability, Noco Provisions aims to deliver gracious, casual sophistication with an emphasis on Regional Comfort Classics.” Via Noco Provisions Website

Executive chef, Adam Watts, has created a menu full of flavor… and don’t get us started on the desserts (check out our photos below for desserts). After a quick conversation with general manager, Patrick Kneese,  we quickly learned of his enthusiasm for approachable dining and his love of Northern Comfort food – thus the name, Noco. The staff was bright and eager to make our dining experience fantastic.

The Noco space is beautiful with a large bar in the middle of the dining area and a great patio located on the frontside of the building. The wall (see below) is stocked with “provisions” that are used in the dishes they serve. This modern yet comfortable space is great for a night out with the girls or a weekly family stop.
