    Black Bear Tavern: Delicious local cuisine in a country lodge

    Black Bear Tavern

    My daughter and I ate at the Black Bear Tavern on the west shore on Saturday night. This was the first time I had eaten there and I was pleasantly surprised. This is a low key restaurant with a completely unpretentious exterior. The interior is warm and inviting and the food is fabulous.

    The decor is rustic mountain lodge-style. The dining rooms have huge wood beams, a large stone fireplace with a roaring fire, pictures of black bears on the walls, and an authentic black bear skin on the wall. Each table was set with its own unique set of dinnerware, which I thought was an incredibly homey touch.

    The restaurant specializes in pastas, steaks, poultry and game. If you're so inclined you can order wild boar or buffalo.

    I happened to notice in the local real estate magazine that the restaurant is on the market. It is currently owned by the chef-owner. I hope that when it is sold, the quality of food is maintained.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered a delicious mushroom tartlet, which was the special appetizer of the evening, followed by a wonderful fresh "winter Waldorf salad" - fresh greens, sliced apples, dried cranberries, candied walnuts, blue cheese and raspberry vinagrette. My daughter ordered a grilled ribeye steak, which she said was very tender and juicy and cooked to perfection.

    Save room for dessert - if you dare. But beware of the killer bananas foster. I ordered that, and it was delicious. It was also laced with rum and brandy. More than "laced" I think.

    If you order this dessert and are the driver, be careful out in the parking lot, or you could find yourself involved in a fender bender....

    Fire Sign Cafe: Good old fashioned homestyle cooking

    Fire Sign Cafe on west shore of Lake Tahoe

    This place doesn't look like much from the outside, but when you see all the cars that are constantly parked outside, you know this is a happening place. Fire Sign is a popular spot with the locals in Tahoe City, and for good reason. Their homestyle breakfasts and lunches are outstanding, and they serve very healthy portions.

    Open for breakfast and lunch only. Serves delicious omelettes, burgers, sandwiches, salads, hot blackberry cobbler
