Za’s is a legend in Tahoe City. Anyone who lived or frequented North Lake Tahoe area in the late 1990’s or early 2000’s will tell you that Za’s was one of their frequent haunts. Za’s is remembered as a cozy, relaxed joint, you could bring the entire family and everyone would enjoy their meal.
In 2005 owner and chef Jonny Roscher decided to close Za’s and take his culinary talents on the road as a private chef for John Force Race Team.
As all who have traveled will tell you, life on the road is wearing and in 2013 Jonny decided that it was time to reopen Za’s, back in its original location behind Pete ‘n Peter in downtown Tahoe City.
Old favorites from Za’s original menu are back and new dishes have been added, inspired from Jonny’s travels. The dinning room has been updated to the modern era, but still has a mountain casual atmosphere.
New in the summer of 2014, Za’s and Pete ‘n Peters have teamed-up to create a patio, known as the Za’s Alley, located outside the main entrances of the restaurants.
