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.
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.
These should be realtively close to you

Have fun :)
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.
