After Leaving our rest stop, we stopped at the Historic Martin Hotel and Restaurant for lunch Winnemucca, Nevada. This is a Basque Restaurant, Reggi had Lamb Shanks and i had Beef Tongue (my first), it was good, the texture is different.

Martin Hotel - Sometime between 1898 and 1908 Alfonso Pasquale opened the Roman Tavern and Restaurant here. In 1913 Augustine A. Martin and Elisee Henri Martin, both of France, acquired this building and the business was named The Martin Hotel. They catered to the sheepmen and cattlemen. Although they were not Basque, the sheepherders and stockmen made the Martin their home when in town. During prohibition, the hotel and restaurant downstairs prospered while a speakeasy thrived in what is now the attic. The Martin Hotel continued as a restaurant after Augustine Martn died. The Martin Hotel today is internationally known Basque and American family style restaurant.
