TravelNevada features food-themed road trip

Special to the NNBW

TravelNevada and Reno Bites have teamed up for a new food-themed road trip itinerary event through northern Nevada.

The food event runs through Reno on Oct. 9-15.

The itinerary focuses on locally owned restaurants in Reno, Fallon, Carson City, Carson Valley, Stateline and Incline Village, along with recreational and touristy activities in those communities. For a look at the online itinerary, go to and click on the “Featured Itineraries” link and scroll through to the Reno Bites Road Trip itinerary.

People who visit the communities on the itinerary and post pictures of their restaurant meals in those communities with the hashtags #RenoBitesRoadTrip, #DFMI and #TravelNevada will be entered into a drawing. One lucky road tripper will get a spot on the judging panel of the Reno Bites Chef Showdown Oct. 14 as well as dinner for two at Zozo’s Ristorante in Reno. TravelNevada’s social promotion runs from Sept. 11 to Oct. 11.

Reno Bites, now in its sixth year, celebrates locally owned restaurants in the Reno area. During the event, special dishes at three price points — $10, $20 and $30 — are offered by participating restaurants such as Bistro 7, Blend Catering, Noble Pie Parlor, Sup and Zozo’s. In keeping with the road trip theme, chefs are developing Reno Bites menus based on memories of own road trips.
