Wild mushroom risotto, carrot ginger bisque and chipotle-cranberry glazed Alaskan salmon are all on the menu at Lake Tahoe’s South Shore this week. The dishes are just a small sampling of the items included in Tahoe South Restaurant Week, taking place Friday, Jan. 8, through Friday, Jan. 15.

The week-long event features special menus, special items and special values at two dozen restaurants from Meyers to Zephyr Cove and is designed to connect food lovers with the area’s notable eateries.

“We’re excited to be able to showcase the culinary scene here at the South Shore of Lake Tahoe,” said Georgette Hartley, integrated marketing manager with the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority. “It’s a fantastic way for us to promote the destination as a whole.”

Specially priced and prix-fixe menus centered around the theme “Made with Altitude” are a big part of the week, which allows participating restaurants to highlight their own specialties or new items.

“It’s a great way for people to check out a spot maybe they haven’t been to or at a better price point,” said Jenn Boyd, with Weidinger Public Relations.

Tahoe South Restaurant Week is part of Visit California’s sixth annual California Restaurant Month, which takes place through January.

“For 31 flavor-filled days, dining establishments across the state will feature gourmet prix-fixe menus, wine-pairing specials, chef-led events, and all of the seasonal ingredients you’d expect from the state that produces nearly half of all American-grown fruits, nuts, and vegetables,” according to Visit California.

No passes, tickets or coupons are required to participate in Tahoe South Restaurant Week. Diners are encouraged to call ahead to individual restaurants to see if reservations are necessary.
