Food & Wine

People take their food and wine seriously here. Small town farms and chic urban eateries comprise just a fraction of the menus available in Nevada County. Guests can find everything from authentic Cornish pasties to bison osso bucco and organic polenta. From the foothills to the Sierra Crest, chefs, restaurateurs, and kitchen crusaders are selecting ingredients and cultivating farm-to-table mentalities that show in every spoonful. Farms are abundant: Check out the Nevada County Grown Food and Farm Guide.

Delectable and laid back is the unspoken mantra that threads the restaurants together. Whether you’re coming off the slopes or have front-row seats at the Center for the Arts, it’s a-come-as-you-are invitation to nearly every dining room. Those dining rooms range from classic diner counters and expansive decks to intimate bistros and flourishing gardens.

If you are seeking a wine or beer tour, consider hiring Gold Crest Limousine Service or Yuba Bus to get you and friends to all of the locations, and back again, safely.
