What to Eat in Reno

Much like Vegas, Reno boasts plenty of all-you-can-eat buffets and upscale steakhouses, but it also offers some unique local eateries serving farm-fresh dishes. If you're craving a nice steak dinner, head to Sterling's Seafood & Steakhouse inside the Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino. It's one of the city's top-rated restaurants, along with the Atlantis Steakhouse at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa.

When you need a break from casino dining, locals and visitors suggest trying Campo, an Italian eatery best known for its wood-fired pizzas and tasty pasta dishes. Or, if you're in search of some healthy, light fare after too many steaks and buffets, head to Great Full Gardens. If its name didn't give it away, Great Full Gardens features a menu of healthy dishes, many that are gluten-free or vegan. Plus, many of the ingredients come from local farms, as well as the restaurant's own greenhouse. If you're looking for more seasonal, locally sourced fare, consider 4th St. Bistro, which receives praise for its extensive wine list.

Another foodie area to consider exploring is the Midtown District. Thanks to the work of small business owners, this neighborhood just across the Truckee River from downtown Reno underwent a revitalization that welcomed in new restaurants (try Old Granite Street Eatery), a microbrewery (Brasserie Saint James) and a sophisticated speakeasy (Death and Taxes), among other lounges, eateries and coffee shops.
