This Tahoe City mainstay showcases elegant California-French dishes with a panorama of the placid, shimmering lake as a backdrop, and is the perfect setting for a sunset meal. The seasonal menu may include starters such as hamachi tartare or an artisanal cheese plate, then move on to mains such as Morrocan spiced lamb loin or braised bison short ribs with a marrow-potato puree. For dessert, tuck into a signature chocolate croissant bread pudding or pumpkin marshmallow s'mores. The restaurant routinely earns accolades for its globally sourced selection of wines. When the weather is warm, you can opt for a seat on the relaxing Sand Bar, a garden-like outdoor patio with fire pits and a more casual menu.
