FOR YEARS NEVADA

County has offered

locals and visitors

an impressive array of

places to get everything

from a multi-course

dinner to coffee and a

nosh. Recently

younger chefs have

embraced the trend

toward farm to table

with an emphasis on

local and organic. They

are also exploring creative

ways to use traditional

ingredients and putting a

new spin on the basics.

The diversity found should satisfy

everyone. You will discover East Indian,

Pacific Rim, Asian, Italian, Mediterranean,

Seasonal California, Continental, Cajun,

good old American “home cooking,” traditional

Mexican, South American and

Middle Eastern.

Many area restaurants are located in

interesting places with a number in historic

buildings. Quite a few feature patios

and decks–some with views.

You can eat a gourmet

dinner, have a casual

meal at a brewery,

watch as your steak

is being grilled at a

roadhouse, enjoy

bar food at a local

favorite, hangout

at an old-time

drive-in, sample

southern cuisine

on a cherry tree

covered patio or

enjoy ribsprepared on

a slow-cook smoker.

Check out bakeries and delis

for some tasty options. Need a lift?

How about coffee roasted in-house or

organically grown at one of the local

cafes, some offer house made baked

goods or pastries from local bakeries.

For more information and ideas, browse

through the Dining Guide starting on

Page 90 where you will find everything

from places to celebrate an event or

grab a quick bite.
