Though the original Nuvo shuttered in 2009, chef Mark Bodenstein could not shake the feeling that he had more work to do. So in late 2013, he decided to breathe some life back into his old concept, flexing his creativity with an everchanging prix fixe menu of imaginative and aesthetically astonishing plates. As Cincinnati Magazine put it, "This is food you'll be thinking about for days."?
Though he cooks with meat, Bodenstein believes that veggies are more dynamic. To this end, his staff finds greens wherever they can find them, whether that's from the onsite garden or nearby farms. Here are some of the less familiar plants that might grace the plates at Nuvo At Greenup.
Maitake mushrooms: In the United States, they're known as hen of the woods. In Japan, their name means "the dancing mushroom." These huge, scalloped mushrooms are easily found by foragers and savored for their rich umami.
Wheat berries: This is what wheat looks like before it's ground into flour. Rich with fiber, protein, and B vitamins, these berries add a barley-like texture to soups and stews.
Nasturtium: The blossoms of this plant are edible, but the flavorful leaves taste peppery and bittersweet.
Fiddlehead ferns: The tightly coiled tips of this fern add grassy brightness to dishes but are only available for a short time period?in the early spring, when ferns are just growing new shoots.
Located at Covington's perfectly-grilled core, the comic-book-themed WhackBurger aims to knock out and lock up hunger with a single powerful weapon: burgers. Burgers so massive that, as Cincinnati Magazine said, they "would still appear large when grasped by Andre the Giant's fist." As if those piled-high patties weren't enough of a handful, the kitchen still sends out every burger with a choice of side, ranging from the traditional (fresh-cut fries with house-made ketchup) to the offbeat (jambalaya, broccoli slaw).
While the walls are covered in comics and superhero-inspired murals, the menu is more like a choose-your-own-adventure novel. In addition to weighing your side options, there's a choice of patty: beef from nearby Heringer Meats, turkey, or a vegetarian black-bean patty made in house. Finally, you'll choose one of more than a dozen topping styles. With bacon and peppercorn mayo, even the Classic is far from standard-issue, but and wilder possibilities take inspiration from Cajun, Cuban, Mediterranean, and German cuisines.
