Last minute request for solo dining in Reno
Hoping their are a few Reno hounds who can help me out.
I've got a last minute trip to Reno showing up tomorrow (Fri). Staying at Siena (1 Lake Street) and looking for somewhere to eat after I arrive. But I won't have a car so limited to a decent walk or cab. And I'm alone so I'm thinking either super casual or if nicer something with a lounge or bar good for a solo diner.
Those are some pretty big limitations so I would be thrilled to get a "this is your best bet" kind of recommendation even if it would not make your best of Reno list.
Open for any type of food: from a pupeseria in an alley to a tasting menu. On the fancier restaurant side bonus points for good cocktails or European wine.
I'd definitely get in a cab and go to the Oyster Bar at the Nugget in Sparks, or the Oyster Bar on the Sky Terrace at the Atlantis on S. Virginia. Order a combination pan roast, which is one of my top five dishes anywhere. It's essentially a cream-based seafood stew, but intensely flavorful owing to paprika and wine. Gah, my mouth is watering already.
These should be realtively close to you

4th Street Bistro and Stonehouse Cafe are a bit farther, as is Sezmu (search Sezmu for fine dining reviews)
Have fun :)
Unless it's moved, you're right by LaFamaglia at First and Lake. It's an Italian restaurant a lot of people like.
Among downtown casinos, the Eldorado usually has the best food.
A little bit of a walk at Liberty and Virginia is Amendment 21 Sports Bar and Grill. Nothing great foodwise but if you're looking for a bar and a chance to mingle, that would be a good bet.
