The Nova/Hudson WI
I'd searched the archives for any posts,but there wasn't many.So...my wife and I made a Saturday road trip to Ellsworth to load up on fresh cheese curds at the creamery.They sell
so fast that they are put out on a table,unrefrigerated.
On the way back,we decided to give The Nova in Hudson a try.If you come into town below the hill heading north,take a right at the first stoplight (Dairy Queen) and its about a quarter mile east,up the hill.
We were also dog-sitting for my in-law's,so the first test was to ask if our dog could join us
outside on the patio.We had a leash,and the dog is well-behaved,but they didn't know that.
It wasn't a problem!
They have a great wine and beer selection,so my wife had a Seaglass sauvignon blanc (sp?)
and I had a tap Surly Furious.MMMMMMM.We started with a Mexican flight,which was 2 house made salsas and a bowl in the center of homemade queso.The chips were either freshly made or hot (round yellow corn) and everything about this app was delicious.One salsa was either a bean or lentil and the other may have had some fruit elements.NOT typical bar fare by ANY means.We both liked it a lot.
My wife had a grilled cheese and I had a chicken alfredo 7 in. pizza.My pizza was fresh and had a terrific meld of crunch,contrast and taste.Sorry,I don't have the flowery adjectives or descriptions here,just know it was GOOD.My wife's sandwich was on a ticker foccacia (?)
and she had the fruit for a side.Not the typical melon,but plump grapes on the vine and big,sweet strawberries.
The waitress was great.Asked if we needed a bowl of water for the dog,wasn't in your face with the syrupy "and how are WE doing today!?" kept our water filled and was a pro.
Will we be back? Guaranteed.My wife thought it would be a "new favorite"
Thanks for detailed review! This is good info to know for my upcoming trip down the river. (Too bad the dog doesn't get to come along.) I checked out the rest of their menu - it looks really good:
And I love that they've got a beer blog!
