Incline Village in April

I've been reading through the posts (both in SW and California) for Incline Village, and everything seems to be at least two years old. I will be at a meeting, staying at the Hyatt at Incline Village at the end of April/beginning of May. Some meals will be provided at the meeting, but I want to make the most of my other meals (some lunches and some dinners). Looking through the old posts, some of the places that look most interesting to me are:

Soule Domain
Bigwater Grille
Are these still good? Anything new to consider? Also, I'm looking for a place for a Saturday night, Monday night, and Wednesday night. Are any of these closed on Mondays? Wednesdays? Any close after ski season?

T's Rotisserie
Sunshine Cafe

Any other suggestions for newer places?
Also, should I post this same question on the California board even though this is supposed to be included in SW?

  1. Lone Eagle Grill @ the Hyatt is very good! We also love the restaurant at The Ritz in nearby Truckee. :).

    1. Saw your post here and in the North Lake Tahoe thread. I second the recommendation for T's. We love the tri-tip burrito.

      Mofo's Pizza is an easy, good meal. I'm partial because the name cracks me up, but the pizza was good the last time I was there.

      Wild Alaskan in the Raley's parking lot is a good choice. We've never had a bad meal there.

      I don't really recommend the Hacienda unless you want bland Mexican. They may have stepped up their game since we last ate there, but we always found it to be mediocre.

      Since you are staying at the Hyatt, their bar/restaurant Cutthroat's Saloon has some good menu choices. I used to love their bbq beef sandwich. It's been a few years since I've eaten there, but I try to recreate that sandwich at home anytime I have leftovers.

      I'll talk to my husband and post again if we think of anything else, but check out the reviews at Urban Spoon. It can give you a good idea of hours and menus.

      1. Our favorite restaurant in the whole world is in Incline: Le Bistro.

        Not only did the chef/owner (always in the kitchen) train at a Michelin 3-star (to those who don't know, that's the highest Michelin goes) but he makes everything from scratch and keeps his prices about 1/3 of what they'd be in France.

        1. Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately many restaurants were closed while we were there for seasonal maintenance. We did manage to eat lunch at T's Rotisserie before they closed for the week. Yum. I would eat there all the time if I lived here. We also had a good lunch at the Sierra Cafe at the Hyatt, though it was resort prices. Bites was closed, which was too bad, but we had a really fun dinner at Fredrick's. We happened to be there on a Wednesday, which was "all night happy hour." The ginger martini and the apps were great, but the most memorable dish OF THE ENTIRE TRIP was their sauteed spinach with carmelized shallots and roasted garlic puree. This is a dish I need to try to recreate at home. We also enjoyed the Thai restaurant in the same strip mall. The banquet dinner that we attended at the Hyatt (next to Lone Eagle) was unmemorable and bordered on cafeteria food. Very uninspired. Considering that we were there between seasons, some very worthwhile dining. Thanks!
