Roco coming to Truckee

Roco will be opening in the former Marg’s location (which closed on April 21), featuring cuisine traditionally inspired by Mexican and Japanese food, with a concentration on tacos and ramen.

Roco will incorporate local seasonal ingredients into its cuisine under the direction of Executive Chef Nathan Lapating, who has been Sous Chef at Truckee Tavern & Grill since 2016. As well, Truckee Tavern’s Ryan Dierks is creating a cocktail program that will be impactful and simplistic featuring three ingredient cocktails that have depth and flavor.

The restaurant is the newest project for West River Hospitality Group, behind the Truckee Tavern & Grill. The group is hoping to open Roco in June.
