Like its famed sister restaurant in San Francisco, Plump Jack Café in the Plump Jack Squaw Valley Inn serves gourmet, local, and organic foods. For a white-tablecloth lunch during your ski day, slip out of your ski boots and order off the bar menu—try smoked baby back ribs or gruyere cheese fondue. For an elegant dinner, try the roasted filet of grouper with carrot puree or the flat iron steak with potato gratin. And save room for the brandy pound cake or the chocolate mousse s’mores. The bar also has an extensive wine and cocktail list.
