The best restaurant in the entire Tahoe Basin is the epitome of discreet chic for serious foodies. The menu changes seasonally, but look for filet mignon "Oscar" with Dungeness crab, crispy sweetbreads, and inventive vegetarian dishes. Rather than complicated, heavy sauces, the chef uses simple reductions to complement a dish. The result: clean, dynamic flavors. The wine list is exceptional for its variety and reasonable prices. A less expensive but equally adventurous
menu, including lunch, is served at the bar.
