Gayot: four of five stars. "Reno's small and mighty 4th St. Bistro, inside a converted home on old Highway 40, delivers inspired contemporary cuisine. Chef-owner Natalie Sellers (Chez Panisse, Stars) and partner-general manager Carol Wilson take care to present the highest quality sustainable, seasonal and organic products available; they were some of the city’s earliest adopters of the local food movement, and have been hand-picking produce from area farms since the restaurant opened in 2000."
