Experience has taught us it's never too early to make lunch or dinner reservations, especially when on a culinary safari. Remember, you're competing for space with an army of other diners.
With that in mind, take a look at the Web site www.tahoerestaurantweek.com. You'll find the details of the inaugural Lake Tahoe Restaurant Week, running Sept. 5-12. Included are menus.
The deal: More than 30 restaurants around the lake and in Truckee will offer three-course prix fixe meals for $20, $30 or $40 per person. "No passes, tickets or coupons are required," said event organizer Pettit Gilwee.
Participating restaurants run a gamut from family-run to high-end. Among the high-rollers are 19 Kitchen & Bar, Edgewood Cafe and the Chart House in Stateline; Cottonwood in Truckee; Lone Eagle Grille in Incline Village; and PlumpJack Cafe in Olympic Valley.
"It's an opportunity to try new restaurants and visit old favorites," Gilwee said.
