19 Restaurant at Harvey’s South Lake TahoePosted: July 29, 2011
I go into rooftop hotel restaurants with low expectations, and 19 (for being on the 19th floor) did a good job. Incredible views of the sun just setting over the lake. I had a 3 wine premium flight that included a decent Chard, Domaine Carneros Pinot Noir and Rodney Strong Meritage, and Susan had a half bottle of 2009 Cakebread Chard which was wondeful.
We had 4 appetizers served as two courses. I had tuna sashimi and Calif roll, followed by great short rib sliders with caramelized onions and horseradish sauce. Susan had a mesclun salad with heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella and tempura asparagus, drizzled with pesto, followed by scallop risotto.
Too full for dessert, but they serve a complimentary bowl of freshly spun cotton candy. Fun!
