Farm-To-Table – A Guide To Sustainable Dining In Reno

Farm-to-Table - Sustainable Dining in Reno - Reno Tahoe

In Reno Tahoe, local farms, distilleries, restaurants and food sustainability are proudly supported, which is the reason this guide has been created to list some of the best farm-to-table restaurants and ground-to-glass distilleries in the region. The majority of them are located nearby Kramer’s Midtown, which is a renowned hotel in Reno for a comfortable stay with family and friends.

Sitting in a solid brick building constructed in the 1940s, Old Granite Street Eatery offers up appetizing sandwiches, burgers and more using locally sourced all-beef patties. They even have a market where you can order to go or take home grocery staples such as oat milk or cage-free eggs.

With four locations in the neighborhood, Great Full Gardens is your go-to place if you have a specialized dietary need or are simply in search of a wonderful flavor and an exclusive and appetizing menu. Some of their local vendors include Dayton Valley Aquaponics who grow produce in an aquaponic green house facility, Truckee Sourdough Company and Elevated Water.

A hidden gem, South Creek Pizza makes use of the freshest local and internationally sourced products to bring you the highest quality handmade pizza possible. Their Artisan Neapolitan style dough is imported from Italy and their tomatoes comes from simply over the hill in California. You will not want to miss this Hand Crafted – Wood Fired – Brick Oven Pizza.

Mari Chuy’s Mexican Kitchen now has two locations – one in Midtown, which is near to a boutique and luxurious Reno NV hotel and another in Victorian Ave. No matter what your plans are in Reno Tahoe, ensure that they include a visit to Mary Chuy’s. They source a lot of their ingredients from local farmers, Great Basin Community Food Cop-op and Wolf Pack Meats. Favorite dishes include their Chile Relleno, tacos and of course, margaritas!

Tucked away inside West Street Market, Thali is an organic, vegetarian Indian restaurant that offers a fixed menu sourced from items grown by the hardworking farmers in Reno region. When dining in-house, all plates are bottomless meaning you will get to indulge in all the fresh local veggies you would like. In addition, try their locally made kombucha or house-made Chai tea.

It has been over 165 years since the Frey family has been farming in Nevada, and they take pride in the grains they grow and the whiskey they distill. The Frey Ranch Distillery and farm is situated in the Lake Tahoe watershed in Fallon, Nevada, and consider each of their slow groan grains and heirloom grown exclusively for the filtered 90 proof Bourbon. The new generation of Frey is more than ranch but a true farm distillery where the whiskey is grown, distilled, matured and bottled on site. You can shop their whiskey at local stores in Reno, or stop by for a tour and tastings every Saturday.
