Eating in Reno – Spring 2015

I don’t even know where to start – we ate out so much the in last three months! I’ll just make a list and try to remember the highlights.

Jazmine – An Asian restaurant with lots of options, but we had sushi. It was good, especially the ones they sear with a torch.

Twisted Fork – love this restaurant near our house. The beet ravioli is to die for and they have a cocktail with bacon in it!

Miguel’s – new location (Summit Mall) of this established Mexican restaurant in Reno. We went there for Cinco de Mayo with friends and although they were extremely busy, they did a good job.

BJ’s – we went there for Mother’s Day. Great avocado spring rolls and, of course, we had to have a Pizooki (their cookie with ice cream dessert).

Silver Peak Restaurant – although I had been to the Silver Peak downtown several times, this was my first time at the midtown location. Lovely terrace. Then crafted cocktails at Z Bar was calling us.

Sierra Gold Casino – this place near our house has a 50% off pizza special every night. Always full and always delicious.

Tahome Gelato – one of my Spanish students started this little booth in Tahoe and served this bark-like gelato. The presentation is super cool as they make it right in front of you, but it was also very tasty and refreshing. They don’t have a specific location but participate in several Farmer’s Market.

Oyster Bar – a small bar at the Hard Rock Café in Tahoe that serves creole food. I loved the oyster and the fiancé, who is picky with his New Orleans inspired food, loved the gumbo. Surprisingly authentic.
