The CV Steak menu features a selection of appetizers and a generous range of entrees including pasta dishes, seafood, chicken and, of course, a number of featured steaks and chops. Most entrees are in the $16 to $24 price range and each entree comes with salad and, except for the hearty pasta dishes, vegetable and your choice of potato - baked, au gratin or a one pound, twice-baked potato.
With rustic dark-wood floors, ambient lighting for a feeling of intimacy and a large panoramic painting of a Sierra sheepherder, CV Steak's eye-catching centerpiece is a wine rack that graces the center back wall. Recessed areas above each booth showcase black and white photos that recount the history of Minden and Gardnerville and were hand-selected for their historic significance by architect and designer Larry Henry. The entire setting is a perfect complement to the Arts and Crafts motif that ties all elements of the new Carson Valley Inn together.
CV Steak offers 25 different wines plus four reds and four whites by-the-glass. The perfect finish is one of six desserts offered nightly. CV Steak is open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. and the CV Steak Bar opens daily at noon. For reservations, call 775-783-6650.
