Tahoe Dining in the Off-Season

As we all know quite well, one of the best things about living in Tahoe is the #offseason. From local's specials, to no traffic, to having a plethora of available public docks at Donner Lake, this time of year is THE BEST. Before the thermometer dips too low, make sure you get out there and get your date night on, away from the crowds! Here are a few of our favorite stops around the Lake. All pieces pictured can be found in boutique!

Gar Woods Grill & Pier

Ah, Gar Woods. Perhaps one of the most iconic and beloved restaurants in North Lake Tahoe, Carnelian Bay-based Gar Woods pays tribute to legendary boat racer Garfield Wood. Relax outside on a warm evening and watch waves crash in on the nearby beach, or take a stroll along the adjoining pier. A favorite stop for boaters cruising the Lake for the day. Enjoy live music on Fridays and Saturdays, or come on Wednesday for Wet Woody Wednesday (just trust us here).

Restaurant Trokay

At gorgeous dining experience Trokay in downtown Truckee, relax in rustic-urban surroundings for a 10-course seasonal chef’s tasting menu. Owners John and Nyna Weatherspoon are transplants from New York City, and we couldn't be happier they share their culinary masterpieces with us! Bonus: they now offer cooking classes!

Mikuni Sushi

If you haven't tried Mikuni yet, you're missing out. Located inside stunning Northstar Village, enjoy decor blending contemporary Asian design with the ambience of a European ski chalet. The vibe here can get rockin' and rollin' so come ready to order some sake, or sit at the bar for a more tranquil experience.

Lone Eagle Grille

Lone Eagle Grille may be the best restaurant in Tahoe, period. With lakefront seating and outside firepits on a private beach, this Incline Village-based gem has just got it goin' on. Talented artisanal chefs whip up stunning American cuisine that will put a dent in your pocketbook, but is worth every penny. Inside, enjoy live guitar music, luxurious stone fireplaces throughout, and an ever-rotating cocktail menu. Great location for your next private event!
