Fodor's Expert Review Nepheles Restaurant
$$$ South Lake Tahoe American
The mood is low-key but the California cuisine is outstanding at this small white-tablecloth restaurant inside an old cabin. Start with escargots or herb crab cakes with Thai chili aioli before moving on to one of several creative salads—perhaps the fruit and Gorgonzola on a mesclun mix—and an entrée like elk medallions, shrimp pasta, or grilled portobello stuffed with ratatouille.
