Ten Crows at Hotel Becket, South Lake Tahoe
Hotel Becket, which recently underwent a major overhaul, is just blocks from Stateline, making it easy walking distance to casinos. After wagering with Lady Luck, take a load off on the patio outside its new Ten Crows restaurant, which faces Heavenly Mountain Resort’s gondola. Alabama-born Executive Chef Trent Bissell, who specializes in Southern fire pit-cooking, turns out St. Louis ribs, smoked pimento cheese, and classic brisket with all the best sides. In the summer, relax with live music and a game of corn hole or ping-pong. “Whether you’re in ski boots or going to a meeting, you can dress as you want—and even bring your pet,’’ says General Manager Gregg Harper.
