While Hotel Becket in South Lake Tahoe opens its doors, it simultaneously debuts its Ten Crows restaurant, an Alabama-style restaurant dedicated to fire pit cooking.
Executive Chef Trent Bissell designed the menu, digging into his northern Alabama roots for ideas. Along with Alabama flavors, the restaurant incorporates Carolina, Creole and Cajun tastes.
