The Loft in the Heavenly Village has announced its brand new American Tapas restaurant, Taste, located on the 3rd floor of the popular award-winning venue. The new “foodie-forward” menu debuted in February with an array of delectable shared-plate options for every discerning “taste”.

Vice President of Operations and Executive Chef, Frank Trotta is no stranger
to creating exceptional menus for some of the most popular dining
establishments in the world. Each thoughtfully designed dish tells a story
of Chef Trotta’s expansive culinary experiences from his impressive career
which includes such prestigious properties like The Stanley Hotel in
Colorado, The Bitter End Yacht Club in the Caribbean, and The Crowne Plaza La Concha in Key West. “I have designed the new Taste menu from the places I have lived and drawn culinary influences from New Orleans, New York, Key West, Bahamas, and the British Virgin Islands”, says Trotta, who holds a Culinary Arts Degree from the famed Culinary Institute of America in New York. He also is a Certified Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers.

From cold and hot plates, to imported cheese and charcuterie boards,
dinner, bar and lounge guests will be able to enjoy this social dining
experience throughout the entire Loft venue, something not available until
now.

Taste at The Loft will feature cold items such as Bison Carpaccio with White
Truffle Oil, Capers, Red Onions and Shaved Parmesan.
Yellowfin Tuna and Avocado Ceviche in Belgian Endive.
Roasted Beets and Burrata with Basil Oil and Balsamic Drizzle.
Chicken Liver Pate with Madeira and Dried Cranberry. On the hot menu try
the Petite Osso Bucco over Baked Polenta. Seared Tuna with Charred
Pineapple and Wasabi Aioli. Seared Filet Mignon with Roasted Garlic
Gorgonzola Crème over Wilted Spinach. Honey Bourbon Glazed Pork Belly
Skewers. Mini Lamb Chops with Mint Pomegranate Balsamic Glaze, or
Seared Scallops with Meyer Lemon and Caperberry Sauce just to name a
few.

The Loft is also home to Lake Tahoe’s #1 show, Magic Fusion, featuring
award-winning world-class magicians from around the world, which
performs nightly in The Loft Theatre. The show is a separate experience from Taste At The Loft restaurant so guests can enjoy the dining experience on its own, or prior to or after the show. The Loft is located in the Heavenly
Village, on the 3rd floor next to the Cinema’s. There is a direct entrance
from the 3rd floor of the parking structure, or from the ground floor of the
village. The Loft is open 7 nights a week throughout the year. For more
