NYC hounds first trip to Lake Tahoe/Truckee
We have rented a house in Truckee for a week in August and are totally unfamiliar with the area. I've picked up a few Tahoe threads, thought we would definitely check out Moody's and maybe Dragonfly for dinner. Could use a few more recommendations, how is Big Water Grille? Wild Goose? Generally we like local, simple fare, prefer American food on this trip (with sushi exception I mentioned). If we cook, which is likely for a few meals, any recs for a good liquor/wine store with a good California selection? How about groceries, and also fresh produce/meat/seafood? Is there a local farmers market and if so, where and when?
Hope I'm not too late! Thursday is Farmers Market night. The Pour House for great wine and cheese to pack into a picnic. Moody's is a MUST - but bring a credit card with a high limit! Burger Me for a quick lunch. Decent mexican at El Toro Bravo - but the drinks are worth going for! Don't miss Wild Cherries for scones and muffins along with their great coffee. Hope you have or had a great trip!
