19 Kitchen~Bar South Lake Tahoe

We spent the Memorial Day weekend in South Lake Tahoe with good friends. For Friday night I had made reservations at 19 Kitchen~Bar, located at the 19th floor of Harveys' Hotel, in South Lake Tahoe.

After having a delicious Pineapple Ginger Mojito in the bar we got seated promptly.
We started of with two starters shared by the table, Warm Goat's Cheese Strudel with Arugula, Mushrooms and Balsamic Vinaigrette ($12). Very good with great balance of the flavors and the right amount of creamy goat's cheese in the strudel. The second starter was the Lettuce Wraps with Chicken, Water Chestnuts, Mushrooms and Szechuan Sauce ($12). Very tasty as well with a nice spiciness to it, although I preferred the Goat's Cheese Strudel.

For entree I choose the Sea Bass with Shrimp Risotto and Lobster Broth ($29). This was a beautiful dish with mild flavors, the sea bass cooked to moist perfection and the risotto had the right texture and creaminess. The Lobster Broth was poured around the risotto and added a distinct sea food flavor. Delicious dish!
My husband had the Wet Aged Filet Mignon and ordered the Adult Fried Mac and Cheese as the side dish. I did not taste the Filet but according to him it was flavorful and cooked to his liking. The Mac and Cheese came in the shape of huge french fries. Crispy fried on the exterior with gooey, cheesy interior. Tasty comfort food in a very adult version in deed. A little lack of flavor existed and it could have used some extra salt. Other then that, very naughty and tasty.

For dessert we shared the Cake and Shake, a intense moist bitter sweet chocolate cake with a coffee milk shake on the side. Dipping pieces of the cake in the milk shake was sinful and delicious. Can't go wrong with this one if you are a full blown chocoholic like me.

We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant, and the great view of Lake Tahoe and the amazing sunset only added to the meal and experience. The service was just right and perfectly attentive. We will certainly return on our next visit to South lake Tahoe.
