THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Heritage Restaurant Review

: Located in the Whitney Peak Hotel right next to Reno's famous sign proclaiming it "The Biggest Little City in the World," Heritage aims to celebrate northern Nevada by sourcing ingredients from local farms and ranches. The spacious open layout allows diners to see into the kitchen, and track lights offer an added effect to the urban setting. A long bar runs along one side of the wall. In the mornings, guests can choose a continental breakfast or make their own creation from the omelet bar. Lunch and dinner bring "Snacks" like bacon-wrapped dates, jamón serrano and grilled bread with brie and cider roasted apples. The menu continues with sections dedicated to "Plants" (carrot ginger soup, perhaps) and "Animals" (cheeseburger, spit-roasted chicken, scallops with squash purée and roasted mushrooms). Among the desserts, diners may find the "Chocolate Peak" made with chocolate wafer, mousse, ganache and peanut butter ice cream. The beer and wine selections further emphasize the local theme. There's also a variety of soda jerk beverages --- the raspberry vanilla is a favorite of chef Mark Estee.
