Tenaya Lodge is serving up a romantic, midweek Valentine's Day getaway with a special opening of Embers Restaurant and Valentine's Day specials at Sierra Restaurant. Valentine's Day falls before the President's Day holiday week this year, so it's a great time to relax in the peace and quiet of winter in the Sierra Nevada and celebrate with a quiet, romantic dinner. 

Embers will open for one night only with a tantalizing menu including:

  • Appetizers: Kampachi Crudo, Bacon, Onion and Leek Tart, Grilled Cuttlefish
  • Soups and Salads: Lobster Bisque, Broccoli Velouté, Caesar Salad, Organic Mixed Greens, Salt-Crusted Beet Salad
  • Signatures: Poussin, Filet Oscar, Spaghetti Squash Gratinee, Roasted Lamb Loin, Lobster Newburg, Red Snapper, 16 oz. Prime Rib Eye
