Cuisine Description

The food at the Anasazi Restaurant focuses on fresh, seasonal ingredients and the abundance of local produce. The restaurant’s menus change frequently and celebrate American cuisine, featuring rustic, yet sophisticated Southwestern flavors with fresh seasonal and regional ingredients. I often select a wine for our diners first and then have them look at the menu and choose their dinner, based on my recommendations. Signature dishes include duck enchilada molé, diver scallops and kurobuta pork belly, achiote grilled salmon, grilled elk tenderloin and Angus beef duet with diablo sauce.

Wine List Description
With over 300 bottles, our wine list features a diverse and inviting selection of both Old and New World wines that enhance our menu.

Riot-Worthy Dish
Wine Enthusiast editors asked America's 100 Best Wine Restaurants of 2013 "which dish would start a riot if it was taken off the menu?" Their riot-worthy dish is…
"Two of our current menu’s standouts are Rocky Mountain grilled elk shortloin with baby root vegetables, goat cheese dumplings and caramelized onion jus, and free-range Northern New Mexico lamb roast with jalapeño-croquettes and vegetable ragout."

Perfect Pairing

Wine Events
We hold intimate, private wine dinners for no more than 12 guests in our award-winning Anasazi wine cellar. Seated at a massive wood table, in a candlelit setting amongst the many bottles of fine wine on reserve in the cellar, guests enjoy a spectacular Southwestern menu paired with exquisite wines.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine announced the third annual issue of America's best wine-centric establishments, and to commemorate the list, WE hosted a rooftop party where we honored this year's recipients and toasted the exploding culture of wine and food.
