Timber Ridge Restaurant in the Reno Tahoe Airport

Timber Ridge Restaurant in the Reno Tahoe Airport

As I sat reading Storm of Swords, the third installment from the Game of Thrones series, an announcement came on the PA system that my flight from Reno to San Francisco was delayed. It was just enough time to visit Timber Ridge, a great new restaurant in the Reno/Tahoe International Airport!

I ordered the Chopped Salad, which came with smoked turkey, avocado, garbanzo beans, dried cranberries, and sunflower seeds over romaine with golden Italian dressing. I absolutely loved this super fresh salad, which had the perfect mixture of crunchy leaves, earthy turkey, and smooth avocado. It was a great energizing start to my trip to SF!

Timber Ridge has such amazing views of the Sierra Nevada, it was distracting me from my book!

Reno has so many fun things to do, from amazing restaurants to flashy casinos. But it also has amazing views of nature - from the Sierra mountain range, to the nearby Lake Tahoe, and the vast sprawling deserts that house Burning Man festivities. It's an amazing city since it has the best of both worlds!

  2. This looks so delicious! I don't eat meat, but this salad looks like it'd still be yummy without it :) I've never been out west, but I would love to see the landscapes there!

  4. These photos are fantastic and really provide a sense of the atmosphere. I find airports to be so exciting, you never know where people may be going and what for! :) To answer your question, I've never had a flight delayed before - how lucky is that!?

  5. How beautiful! I've been itching for a trip to Tahoe- the entire area is so pretty! And that salad looks delicious! I've actually never had a flight delayed before, but then again I haven't been on a plane that many times in my life :P

    I haven't been on that many flights, but if mine was delayed, I'd probably try and nap to be honest!

  19. I'm not usually a fan of salad but this one looks so good! A Storm of Swords is probably my favourite book from that series so far, I was hooked! xx

  20. This looks really nice, the salad looks a bit different to the usual ones...not often you get one with turkey! I always use the time to read a book if my plane is delayed x

  24. Oh yum! I just love avocado and that salad looks amazing! The last time I flew was 2009, when I traveled to Alaska. There were many delays but mostly I just slept. (;
