Craving Sage Room

What’s the first thing I think about whenever I travel? Where to eat of course… Whenever I am in South Lake Tahoe, I usually prefer staying at the Harrah’s or Harvey’s Casino. These casinos are within walking distance to the Gondola and after a day of boarding, everything is in your hotel to experience Tahoe’s nightlife of lounging, entertainment, gambling, or my favorite, dining. My boyfriend and I are staying at the Harrah’s this time around, but on our first night here, we had dinner at the Sage Room at the Harvey’s. We shared everything, starting with some appetizers: the king crab cocktail and a dozen oysters on the half shell, freshly shucked, with lemon, horseradish, tabasco and cocktail sauce. Prepared table-side, we had the Caesar salad for two made a dressing that I saw prepared with worcestershire sauce, tabasco sauce, dijon mustard, egg yoke, vinegar and anchovies tossed with romaine lettuce and topped with fresh parmesan cheese. I will definitely be attempting to recreate this salad at home. Although the Sage Room is a steak house, we had one of the fish specials, which was a sea bass with asparagus and a baked potato with butter and sour cream. The server was surprised we actually had room for dessert, but we couldn’t resist the Chocolate Lava Cupcake, a fresh made chocolate cupcake served piping hot topped with fudge sauce, chocolate chips, and served with vanilla bean ice cream. Pure deliciousness.
