Fresh from the kitchen garden to your plate

While the menu at Six Peaks Grille, a Lake Tahoe fine dining restaurant in Squaw Valley, features plenty of local produce, meat, and poultry, Chef de Cuisine Chad Shrewsbury decided it wasn't quite enough. So he planted a garden.

The garden at Six Peaks Grille, a North Lake Tahoe restaurant.

Planted in raised beds that ring the outdoor lounge area of Six Peaks Grille, the herbs and vegetables chosen by Chef Shrewsbury were brought to North Lake Tahoe from Sierraville, California. Chef started the seeds in a green house in January and cultivated them specifically for the Six Peaks Grille summer menu.

Chef Shrewsbury plans to eventually produce everything he needs for the cocktail menu - Six Peaks Grille is known for its innovative cocktails - as well as menu items like green goddess salad dressing and all of the garnishes.

Come experience the best of Squaw Valley mountain dining at Six Peaks Grille and enjoy the farm and garden fresh ingredients featured throughout the menu.

Hidden cocktails with one of the world's best views

There are plenty of restaurants where you can relax with a cocktail after a day spent exploring Lake Tahoe's great outdoors. But for those willing to venture a little further, there are places where you can do both.

Sitting down with a margarita at one of North Lake Tahoe’s several lakefront restaurants can be total bliss. But sometimes, you want something a little more out of the ordinary - one of those hidden spots that make you feel like you have the whole world all to yourself.

One of my favorite spots to have an afternoon aperitif isn’t relaxing lakeside with a bartender at my beckon call. It’s high up on the East shore of Lake Tahoe, and it’s self-serve.

Starting out from Diamond Peak Ski Resort in Incline Village, I pack a picnic into my backpack and head up an easy-to-moderate trail where the view still takes my breath away every time. The trail leads to the Snowflake Lodge, which is closed in summertime but offers an open and inviting deck with tables and chairs. The deck has a 360 degree view of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding mountains, and watching the sun set behind the West shore is simply unsurpassed. It is beautiful and peaceful up there, and an easy hike back down to your car before dark.

For those willing to venture a little further, cocktail hour comes with a
private view of Lake Tahoe.
