Want to eat food that’s sustainable and innovative, served in a warm and inviting atmosphere? Then you might want to consider an evening out at Stella in Lake Tahoe nestled in the Cedar House Sport Hotel.
Stella in Tahoe was opened to be the neighborhood gathering place, drawing its cuisine inspiration from Mexican, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean fare. The restaurant is committed to the community and does the most it can to support local farmers and producers.
The Menu at Stella in Lake Tahoe
Start your dinner off right with one of the small plates. Go for a plate of seasoned French fries with homemade ketchup, a plate of chicken wings, and falafel. Or if you’re dining out with a group, splurge for one of the shareables. Dine on Lebanese hummus, baba ganoush, cauliflower shawarma, or the local farm feature
Then after the appetizers, you’re going to want to get down to the business of your main meal. Stella in Tahoe offers the wild king salmon tartare with soy sauce, lemon, jalapeno, chipotle aioli, and tostadas; smoked pork tacos in a yellow corn tortilla, with white onion, black chili oil, salsa cruda, and cilantro; sweet potato tacos as a vegetarian option instead of pork; and much more!
End Your Meal Right
What’s a good meal without a sweet treat afterward? For dessert, you can choose from a chocolate tart made with chocolate ganache in a shortbread crust with mango and vanilla Chantilly; a cheesecake with graham cracker crust and spiced pineapple; a sorbet with seasonal fruit; or a kombucha float with sorbet and seasonal fruit.
Fun Activities to Do Before Dinner
Work up an appetite before dinner with one of the many adventures found throughout Lake Tahoe. You can take on a game of golf at Kings Bach Miniature Golf or the old Brockway Golf Course, which are both located within a few short miles of Stella. Make it a date night and challenge your partner to a game of miniature golf, or spend the afternoon perfecting your swing on the greens of Brockway Golf Course. Breathe in the fresh air as you stroll along the beautiful countryside. A wonderful game of golf will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed, perfect before settling into dinner.
Visit Truckee Bike Park
For more adventurous travelers, stop by the Truckee Bike Park for a fun afternoon exploring varied terrain and exciting pump tracks. Most people describe it as one of the best bike parks they’ve ever visited. Bikes rentals are available with pump tracks for all skills levels, including smooth flow lines, ramps, and trails. You can even take lessons from a certified and experienced biker. Work up a sweat along with an appetite and cool off with a drink at Stella.
Go Jet Skiing, Kayaking, or Paddle Boarding
