I am moving this topic from the discussion on Kokopelli's, as a chowhound posted there saying she was about to move to Carson City (I assume from the Bay Area somewhere....) and wanted chow tips. Steve Timko works a lot in Carson, and usually has the best thoughts. I assume the OP saw the discussion about Viet Pho, which just opened. I like the Mexican taco place on the main drag just about across the street from Viet Pho, but I can't for the life of me remember the name. Adele's is probably the best (upscale) dining. Remember that Reno isn't that far of a drive for dinner, especially the south side of town. Speaking of south Reno, Steve, did you see the thing about the new Hawaiian BarBQue place opening in what used to be the Wild Alaskan Fish Co? Might be worth a taste....although I guess it is a Hawaiian chain.
As for produce, I like Raley's. There is a farmer's market in Carson, but unfortunately its ended for the year.
