Wild River Grille – on the banks of the Truckee River downtown, in the Riverwalk District and just down the street from my work, in the historic Artist Lofts Building. I tried to eat outside here today but the breeze kicked up and made it slightly too cold. Obviously I was the only one brave enough to try it, as you can see from the empty tables everywhere...
The patio is spacious and has a view of the river, and when it's not so cold there's live music out here too. I work until 6 pm M-Th. so I usually miss the happy hour specials, but one day a month I’m off at 5, so I have an hour to get in on the fun! Today was my shorter day, so wahooooo.
Since they’re right across the street from the Pioneer Center, they also offer Broadway dinner specials! This is a four-course meal themed after the play.
This month they’re showing the Wizard of Oz at the theater, and check out their menu for it!!
Indoors is beautiful, as well. Here's a view of the main dining room, the River Room.
Around the corner is where I ate tonight...
And now for the food... (forgot to show my drink, which was a gorgeous Tequila Sunrise!)
The Wild River salad, with pecans, gorgonzola, apples and more. So refreshing and delicioso. The wings were amazing as well - I tried Garlic Parmesan but they also have Thai wings on the menu (next time!!)
This is a great spot for corporate events, weddings, etc. and large groups of up to 120. Whether you visit here at night outdoors with the cafe lights strung overhead or you're inside with the lovely soft glow, it's a nice romantic riverside ambiance.
