Nico'Z, (pronounced NEEK-O'Z), opened the doors in Chillicothe, Missouri on June 15, 2009. The first location was on the North side of the downtown square, next to the Silver Moon Plaza, a small cozy eatery that was opened to provide a healthier choice for lunch. Not only does Nico'Z serve lunch but is available to do caterings up to 100 people.  Nico'Z is also open with a separate dinner menu on Friday evenings from 530pm-9pm.  Reservations are recommended for dinner, but not required. Don't miss out on our midweek HUMP DAY HAPPY HOUR from 5-7pm with all of our specialty pizzas and drink specials... Everyone needs a break in their busy schedule. 

Nicole Cleaveland Booth was born and raised in Chillicothe, Missouri. After graduating from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelors Degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management, moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where she resided for over 7 years. Satisfied with achieving many goals & fabulous opportunities in the hospitality field (Station Casinos, Inc, Harrah's Inc, The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino), moved home to marry longtime friend and schoolmate, Dave Booth, who is responsible for the name of the cafe. The Z is for her mother Zelma.

After moving back to Chillicothe and working for a couple of other businesses, Nicole decided that if she was to survive the small-town life, it was time to create something that was a challenge. Originally, the idea was to just do catering, but when the opportunity for the downtown  location of the business arose...Why not do lunches?

After two and a half years of business, lunches exceeded the seating space of the first location so a new location opened in November 2011! Nicole prepares Soups, Wonderful Salads, Daily Seasonal Specials, Specialty Pizzas, Hot Sandwiches and a Friendly Atmosphere.  Make sure you have your fill of your favorites, the menu changes quarterly to keep it new and interesting.

There are a few things you should know about Nico’Z before coming in for a visit: There is no fried food, no reservations at noon and there is no Ranch Dressing.  We call it "healthier dining"... Try something new, you just may like it!

Your votes do count because we were just voted #1 BEST OVERALL RESTAURANT in 2011& 2012, along with BEST ATMOSPHERE, BEST MENU VARIETY, BEST CATERING, BEST SERVICE, BEST LUNCH & BEST DINNER PLACE!!! We look forward to making this year even better than the last one and can't wait to hear your suggestions!
