Old Granite Street Eatery
Small and rustic, the interior of Old Granite Street Eatery helps set the mood for the overall experience. The restaurant is softly lit with long community tables set out. The menu is essentially American cuisine with a twist; from the unique hash browns served at breakfast to the deviled egg appetizer. And the burger, one of the juiciest ever, is a huge hit .The friendly service combined with the excellent food and warm atmosphere make Old Granite Eatery a perfect place for a meal with some friends.
Noble Pie Parlor
Noble Pie Parlor serves up some of the best pizza in Reno. Don’t let the location deceive you; once inside, Noble Pie Parlor is a quaint little restaurant with all of the decor of a unique hip joint and the food of home. There’s a vast selection of pizzas and chicken wings and great news for all of the pizza lovers with a gluten allergy; a gluten-free (also vegan) crust is available, and just as tasty as the regular one.
A beautiful century-old home, situated in an old Reno neighborhood and just across from the river, has been renovated into the Beaujolais Bistro. Dining here is made even better with exceptional staff that are ready to cater to every need. With choices such as steak and duck the menu delivers some of the greatest dishes French cuisine has to offer. Of particular note arethe bacon-wrapped dates. If there is a celebration coming up or you just fancy a good meal, Beaujolais Bistro is the place to go.
La Famiglia is one of the best Italian dining experiences in Reno. Warm and welcoming, the staff provide great service and there is even an accordion player, upon request. The food is simple but delicious, with a wide variety of pasta and meat dishes available. The ravioli ai funghi is remarkable in every way.
If in the mood for some Taiwanese food, this is the place to visit. 101 Taiwanese Cuisine serves traditional Taiwanese food ranging from traditional soups to sandwiches. The braised beef soup is superb, cooked to perfection. Alternatively, the popcorn chicken is enough for a full meal. And, of course, no Taiwanese place would be complete without boba bubble tea!
Combining food and activity into one, Crafted Palette serves as a breakfast place, a coffee shop, a bar, and a painting studio. Paintings, from both classes and local artists, cover the walls and are up for sale. Although on the light side, the food is fresh and unorthodox as far as most breakfast and sandwich places go. The coffee and other hot drinks are exceptional and available all throughout the day. Later on, the place is converted into a studio. During classes, a selection of beverages and a wide array of desserts are offered.
