Lake Tahoe
Tahoe serves up fresh local ingredients with culinary creativity. At West Shore Café & Inn, everything down to the marshmallows is handmade. PlumpJack at Squaw Valley has a menu that changes with the local harvest, as well as special seasonal events. The traditional Zephyr Cove Restaurant is a South Lake classic dedicated to all things local, sustainable, and delicious. The local drinking scene is similarly alluring, with wine bars such as Uncorked and Picchetti Winery's tasting room, brew houses such as Mellow Fellow and Stateline Brewery, and artisanal cafés for those who need a caffeine fix.
