At Cottonwood Restaurant and Bar, fine dining, comfort and camaraderie join to create a truly matchless Sierra dining experience. Spirited tales of mountain adventure continue to echo within one of the nation’s oldest ski lodges, which was hand built from salvaged railroad ties in 1928. Revel in unmatched views of downtown Truckee and the surrounding Sierra from the vast Dining Room and expansive Deck. One of the best Truckee Restaurants. Cottonwood has it all; a vibrant heritage, a lively music scene, a full bar, and an adventurous menu. The building also has a “through the century” vibe with the vast dining room and deck added in the 1970s that overlook historic downtown Truckee. The evolution of this vibrant heritage of casually elegant dining and lively music scene inspires new ideas that flow from the historic setting, recently updated with soothing blue and beige tones, new carpet and natural wood tables that flow with the gorgeous views.
Chefs Ben and Joe leaned on all their culinary training to put together the best dishes Cottonwood has ever served, available now in the winter menu. From veggie to beef to game, they created a range of elegant comfort food. Their 3 Veggie Taco small plate offering evokes the feel and flavors of fresh, delicious street food, with all of the produce sourced from Tahoe Food Hub. The first bite of taco starts in the house made corn tortilla and continues through the roasted sweet potato and house made refried beans, topped with queso fresco, yellow salsa and a bit of cilantro with maybe a little sauce dripping down your chin. You won’t want to stop at three. Other items on the menu include bone marrow with sweet shallot marmalade, bison, elk and venison in various forms, poutine and the classic Cottonwood whole leaf Caesar salad.
