During this busy time of the season, our family always looks forward to finding some quiet time to share the magic and reason for the season. Lucky for us, and all who live and visit the Truckee and Lake Tahoe region, there are some deliciously-delightful boutique restaurants in which to dine.
To entice you and yours to bundle up and head-out to a cozy night on the town, we’ve selected some of our favorite fine dining establishments to share with you.
And with snow in the forecast, there couldn’t be a better time to put a hot date on the books to celebrate the holidays in the fine style that you have earned and deserve.
From our home to yours, we wish you a white (of course!), warm and wonderful holiday season.
Known for its distinctive menu and rustic elegance in a historic setting, Cottonwood has earned its reputation as a restaurant for celebrations of all reasons within its truly matchless Sierra setting. We love to step back in time and dine in one of the nation’s oldest ski lodges that history notes was “hand-built from salvaged railroad ties in 1928!”
This eclectic new hot spot is quickly becoming a local’s favorite. The food is as fresh as the atmosphere that often showcases local talent and trivia nights. With everything they do, they promise there is a sense of ‘passion and purpose’ behind their health-conscience menu that is simply designed and reflects their minimalistic approach.
Known throughout the region for its fine dining and exceptional award-winning wine list, PlumpJack is very much a part of the heritage of the Valley. Its reputation as a ‘premier dining destination’ is just the beginning of the entire warm and welcoming experience that awaits you and yours this holiday season.
What was once the first house in Squaw Valley over 50 years ago is now home to some of the most delicious California Cuisine. Just one step inside and you will feel right at home in this lovely mountain lodge wrapped with its high-beamed pine ceiling and intimate rock fireplace. Once snuggled in, be sure to check out their wine list that has received the “Best of Award of Excellence” by Wine Spectator since 2001. P.S. Here’s a sneak-peak to their Christmas and New Year’s Menus; make your reservation today!
From its panoramic Lake views to its Modern American cuisine with refined Mediterranean influences … everything about Christy Hill is first class and forever remembered. During the winter months, think about an early reservation for your cozy night out – the sunsets over the snowcapped Sierra are a must-not-miss. Every year Christy Hill takes the top ratings as the “best place to take a date in Tahoe City” and with good reason!
Touting ‘Cuisine Unique’ to describe their food and the personality of their restaurant, Wolfdale’s has developed a style of “East-West cuisine” that is the hallmark of their reputation and dedication to excellence. Since 1978, their focus has and continues to be that each dish is creatively presented as “fresh food – simply prepared” to enhance the restaurant’s intimate setting.
For German and French fare, head to this Lake Tahoe landmark and an ideal choice for family and friends to gather after a day on the slopes. It’s as cozy as its classic European setting that will make you feel like you are across the world yet so close to town. Escargot anyone? Wienerschnitzel? One of the oldest restaurants in Lake Tahoe, this timeless European dining option will not disappoint.
By far the coziest spot in all of Lake Tahoe is Soule Domain – which continues to take the top spots for the best places to take a date throughout the High Sierra. Located on the north shore’s California / Nevada state line, this 80-year-old log cabin’s charm complements the upscale, intimate restaurant that deliciously combines style and romance in its very quaint living room setting. The food is just as inviting. Don’t miss this one!
May your holidays be merry and bright …
Wherever you choose to cozy up, we encourage you to find the time to celebrate all that is good in life during this joyous time of the year.
