From the culinary mind of Chef Michael Mina, comes Bourbon Pub. A concept proven in the San Francisco Bay Area and transplanted to the Sierra. Northstar's rendition of Bourbon Pub will offer a casual atmosphere with reinvented pub fare such as Truffle Tater Tots, Al Pastor Pork Ribs, and Fennel Stuffed Salmon. Experience Bourbon Pub in the winter of 2019.
