Discover Carnelian Bay

North Lake Tahoe is a unique city that straddles the border of California and Nevada. Carnelian Bay is nestled in the region and offers a dining scene that consists of an interesting mix of comfort foods and seafood options. Fish is the mainstay of many dishes available at fine-dining restaurants, showing off the taste of the lake. Locals often enjoy seafood and other protein choices with vegetables such as fresh string beans and carrots. Barbecue is also a favorite option in Carnelian Bay at a number of local joints specializing in tender Southern-style meats. These smoked meats made in the Alabama tradition continue to grow in popularity and are an excellent choice for some Lake Tahoe American comfort food.
