Bite Me: Smoked Prime Rib Nachos

Bar Novo takes bar food to a new level

Nick Saraga

 Like a doting momma, just wants to feed you. Bite Me is our twice-weekly look at the most succulent dishes Chicago has to offer. Read on, eat well.

It hasn't even "officially" opened yet, but Bar Novo, located in the Renaissance Chicago Hotel, is already creating a buzz among downtown professionals as a great spot for after-work drinks and light bites. Peruse the menu and your eyes are sure to stop at their mouth-watering take on nachos -- a far cry from what typically passes for bar food.

What's in it?
Flash fried tortilla chips are individually and generously topped with Gloucester-Cheddar Cheese, Shaved Prime Rib, and finished with fresh Heirloom Tomato Salsa and Guacamole.

Suggested pairing:
Bar Novo's White Mai Tai with Appleton White Rum, Don Q Limon, Cointreau and Orgeat.

Why should you eat it?
"When groups have been ordering the Prime Rib Nachos, they try to stick with just one, but they end up ordering another serving because they are that addicting. The White Mai Tai is the perfect sweet complement to the smoky prime rib and the sharp cheddar cheese." -- Matt Ochse, Director of Restaurants.
