It’s hard not to notice Cottonwood as you’re driving through Truckee—the restaurant’s large cliffside patio and red neon sign dominate the views from downtown. You have two options: dinner on the outdoor patio under hanging string lights, or a more casual experience at the indoor bar, housed in a former ski lodge from 1928. The menu is the same in both places, but the patio area is better if you’re looking for a more romantic or elegant atmosphere.

No matter where you sit, you’ll be pleased with the menu, whether you’re sharing the mushroom medley veggie tacos at the bar or pairing your coriander-lime fettuccine with a glass of wine on the patio at sunset.
