While Hotel Becket in South Lake Tahoe opens its doors, it simultaneously debuts its Ten Crows restaurant, an Alabama-style restaurant dedicated to fire pit cooking.

Executive Chef Trent Bissell designed the menu, digging into his northern Alabama roots for ideas. Along with Alabama flavors, the restaurant incorporates Carolina, Creole and Cajun tastes.

 “Growing up in the South, barbeque and smoking meats was always a passion and a hobby for me,” says Bissell. “I’m excited to bring my years of experience cooking authentic southern specialties to Lake Tahoe.”

Menu items include classic homemade biscuits and gravy for breakfast, a pimento cheese appetizer for lunch and chopped pork for dinner.

The space at Ten Crows features an outdoor patio, flat screen TVs, and a terrace with games and fire pits in the summer

Bissell has worked at Whole Foods Market, Renaissance Ross Bridge Resort and Spa and the Dolce Group. His received his culinary degree from Le Cordon Blue in Atlanta.

As it opens its new restaurant, Hotel Becket reveals its multimillion dollar renovation, which included merging the former 968 Park Tahoe and Park Tahoe Inn into a new hotel concept.

There are currently 167 rooms in Hotel Becket and more than 1,000 square feet of group and meeting space with multi-function breakout rooms.

It is located across the street from Heavenly Village and two blocks from the casino and nightlife of Nevada. Lake Tahoe is a short walk from the hotel and guests are given entry to a private beach.

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business.
