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.
“Growing up in the South, barbeque and smoking meats was always a passion and a hobby for me,” says Bissell. “I’m excited to bring my years of experience cooking authentic southern specialties to Lake Tahoe.”
