While spending the week in Lake Tahoe, we visited the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort to have lunch at the Lone Eagle Grill. One of the premier restaurants in the area, the Lone Eagle Grill is located on the property right on the lake. Our host told us that the chef had something spectacular planned, and boy was she right!
We started the meal with their signature drink the Golden Eagle. This is their version of the classic margarita and they were spot on! Out came the appetizers next. The chef prepared a Marinated Winter Beet Salad, Birch Glazed Pork Ribs, and Chardonnay Steamed Pen Cove Mussels. The beet salad was a great mix of pecans, beets, and goat cheese with a blood orange vinaigrette. The pork ribs were tender and fell right off the bone. The mussels melted in your mouth and the broth was really flavorful. I had to stop dipping my bread into it or I was not going to be hungry for the main course!
Once we finished up with the apps, the wait staff brought out the main courses. The chef prepared a Mesquite Grilled New York Steak, a Verlasso Salmon, and my favorite Bangers and Mash. The steak was tender and juicy and the creamy mustard dressing went really well with it. The salmon was a light entrée salad and was really bright and fresh. The bangers and mash had fantastic pork sausage with a garlic potato puree and a smoked onion that really tied the whole plate together.
Finally, after I was sure that I could not eat anymore, out came dessert. We were able to choose from a Chocolate Mousse Brownie, Lemon Cheesecake, and their version of a Baked Alaska. I was able to try all three and just like everything else, they were fantastic. If you are ever near by this place, I would highly recommend you stop by and grab a bite to eat.
