Manzanita Restaurant Review

: Fresh and seasonal ingredients are the stars of the menu at this mountaintop resort restaurant from Traci Des Jardins --- though many dishes at Manzanita have become evergreen mainstays. Take the 12-hour Bordeaux braised short rib served with creamy polenta and a pine nut fennel gremolata, or the diver sea scallops paired with cauliflower, brown butter, caper, golden raisins and roasted romanesco that are repeatedly requested by guests. Furthering Manzanita’s appeal are its splashy interior design, hip bar and lounge, and Northstar California resort mountain views, especially from the large patio, with covered terrace, weather permitting. For an après-ski or summertime treat, roast some of the restaurant's house-made mint marshmallows over the outdoor fire.
