5 Great Reno Spots For a Bite to Eat
Reno is reinventing itself in many ways, with the food scene leading the way. If you have not had the chance to experience some of Reno’s newer restaurants, this list will help you get started.
Centro Bar & Kitchen (Tapas) http://www.centroreno.com 236 California Ave, Reno, 89509
This eclectic and hip midtown spot on California Ave is my go-to spot to impress out-of-town visitors. Each shareable small plate offers incredible flavor, while the craft cocktails are an art all their own. A few menu favorites include filthy fries, grilled caesar, and the ahi tower. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Noble Pie Parlor (Pizza) www.noblepieparlor.com 777 S Center St, Reno, NV 89501
Best pizza and wing joint in town, but the star of the menu are frachos; crispy french fries layered in cheese, sausage crumble, wing sauce, yum! Wings are amazing, and I am not normally a big wing fan. They are known for their meatballs as well, so order the Steerhead pizza with meatballs and caramelized onions. The new location on Center Street offers outdoor seating with long picnic tables, and they share the space with Pinon (beer garden).
Hinoki (Sushi) www.yelp.com/biz/hinoki-sushi-reno 5270 Longley Ln, Reno, NV 89511
Found our new favorite sushi place after searching Yelp. The salmon is incredibly fresh and high quality. Menu is small, but sushi chefs are happy to make you anything you request – and all are familiar with Hiroba’s rolls (another favorite sushi place on Skyline). Poke bowls for lunch are amazing as well.
Shawarmageddon (Wraps) www.shawarmageddon.com 501 W 1st St, Reno, NV 89503
A hole-in-the-wall, but great for take-out lunch with the Truckee River a block away. Shawarma wraps offer lamb, chicken, or falafel. Served in fresh ashtanur bread with cabbage & carrot slaw, pea shoots, house pickled cucumbers, roasted red peppers, and mouth-watering sauces to choose from.
Chuy’s Mexican Kitchen (Mexican) www.chuysmexicankitchen.com 764 S Virginia St, Reno, NV 89501
A modern Mexican restaurant at the Sticks, in the heart of midtown. Start with a jalapeño or cucumber margarita and queso fundido. The Molcajete is awesome, and large enough to split. Delicious and fresh in an open and airy setting.
