Reno celebrity chef Mark Estee has changed the face of Reno dining.
Reno Provisions features quick (but healthful) on-the-go food; a bar that makes its own kombucha; and a marketplace featuring goods and produce from northern Nevada and surrounding states.

The retro-themed yet fashionable dining area features a black-and-white checkerboard floor, large windows that are flung open in the summer and casual tables or bar dining.
Visitors can dine in or take home daily, seasonal dishes that feature ingredients from local farms and vendors.
Reno Provisions serves deli sandwiches, gelato, juices and smoothies, just to name a few.

Reno Provisions serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it always offers an assortment of pastries and fresh breads.
Breakfast includes items like burritos and sandwiches, the house quiche or simple yogurt and granola. For lunch or dinner, visitors can fill up a cafeteria tray with an entree, soup and two salads for $10.
Various sandwiches include the Italian Meat Grinder ($6.99) with provolone, arugula, vinaigrette and hot peppers on a ciabatta roll, or the Pulled Pork with North Carolina BBQ sauce and dirty slaw on a brioche bun.

The bar features local draft beers, wine on tap and creative cocktails like the Leap of Faith ($10) with Monte Alban Reposado, pineapple juice, citrus, espresso liqueur, Fernet Branca and soda water.
The bar also makes its own hibiscus-honey-rose kombucha for drinks like La Bella Vita ($9) with Atlantico Platino Rum, honey and mint.

Reno Provisions also has a state-of-the-art demonstration kitchen, where various meals and butchering techniques are held during weekends, evenings and special events.
Every Sunday, the restaurant transforms into an Italian restaurant for a three-course, family-style dinner for only $18 for adults and $10 for children.
The rear of the restaurant features a market with local meats, soups, baked goods, artisanal cheeses, fresh pasta and fresh produce from local and regional farms.
You can even pick up salumi and sausage made fresh just for the Estee restaurants.
The entire restaurant can be rented for special events and includes over 6,000 square feet of upstairs floor space for private events like weddings and meetings.
Reno Provisions is located across from the Silver Peak Grill & Taproom and the Cinemark Theaters on the Truckee River. Reno Provisions is also just steps away from the downtown Reno casinos and Estee's other popular restaurant in the city: Campo.
