Located in the back of the old River Street Inn is the new 1882 Bar and Grill. Thus named because the building was actually built in 1882. (See! The west coast doesn’t tear everything down when it gets old!) Overlooking the Truckee River and a hop, skip and a jump from Old Downtown Truckee, it’s a little bit of New Orleans tucked away in the Sierras.

The menu features Barbecued Brisket, Pulled Pork, Tri Tip, Chicken, Ribs, New York Steak and much more. It’s BBQ served multiple ways and you can have them as an entre, in a salad or on a sandwich. A wide variety of side dishes and appetizers fill the rest of the menu.  The restaurant also offers a full bar with some of their own specialty drinks. My friend Joan had the best red beer ever. I could smell the fresh lushness of the bloody Mary mix without even tasting it. (Low salt diet forbids any partaking unfortunately…) We must have inadvertently hit them at happy hour, as drink prices were beyond reasonable for a tourist town. I had their hard cider which was just the refreshing drink I needed to compliment my meal while sitting on the back deck and watching the river roll by.

I’ve eaten here twice already and it has been a very pleasant experience both times. The food is fresh, delicious and the portions are hearty, which is why we didn’t order the following…

Beignets!!! Let’s get real here. No self respecting homage to New Orleans would be complete without these tasty treats. If you’ve never indulged in these little puffy fluffs of French fritter heaven covered in powdered sugar, you really need to get out more. To remedy that, plan for a lunch or dinner – and dessert! at the 1882 Bar and Grill.

 

Beignets. Oh the yummyness!
