Fodor's Expert Review PlumpJack Cafe
The menu at this silver-tone white-tablecloth restaurant whose wide windows reveal Palisades Tahoe in all its glory changes seasonally, but look for rib-eye steak, seared diver scallops with risotto, and a filling, inventive vegetarian dish. Rather than complicated, heavy sauces, the chef uses simple reductions to complement a dish, resulting in clean, dynamic flavors.
