Looking for the best of Reno?
I will be visiting Reno for the first time at the end of September for 3 nights and am looking for a couple great places to eat.
Will have a car, big foodie from Washington DC, love all cuisines, will eat meat, fish ect.
Give me something to eat that I will be able to talk about!!!
One of my favorite places in Reno now is Bistro Napa in the Atlantis casino. I generally run from casino food but this could be a stand alone restaurant serving wonderful wine country cuisine, including amazing artichoke hearts cooked in their wood-burning oven, panko sand dabs, and sexy fries with parmigiano reggiano, white truffle oil, roasted garlic, and fresh herbs.
Reno is king of all-you-can-eat sushi and the best place for that I'd say is Hiroba Sushi. It's quite popular so I'd expect a long wait unless you go in an off eating time, like mid to late afternoon. Sit at the counter for best service. It won't be the best sushi you've ever had but it's good sushi and a chance to gorge yourself on a variety of good sushi.
For just a good restaurant, I'd recommend Fourth Street Bistro. Good wine list and for Reno a great wine list.
For breakfast, Fifth Street Bakehouse or Krumblz (both have fresh-baked goods), any of the Peg's Glorified Eggs and Ham or Kimmie's Coffee Cup.
Reno has a long tradition of Basque hotel dining. This is not gourmet food. But it's good food. Look up my reviews of the Santa Fe Hotel or Louis' Basque Corner. I give the edge to Santa Fe but I think both are enjoyable.
Just about all the Thai restaurants are good. My favorites are Thai Chili and Bangkok Cuisine.
