Red Sage, the exceptional fine dining restaurant at Buffalo Thunder Resort, is part of the stunning Hilton side of the Pojoaque Pueblo destination offset from the Buffalo Thunder Casino, Formidable yet with an intimate sophistication, Red Sage is perfect for a special occasion or impressive date night.
Renowned chef Ka’ainoa Ravey has created a menu that is a pinnacle of a culinary journey, expertly fusing innovative Southwest flavors with his own unique style, which he refers to as “a little Hawaiian, a little New Mexican, and an American attitude with an Asian twist.” He features “flavor stacking” where tastes are layered throughout a single dish. Imagine if you can (but nothing will come close to the actual experience) a combination of pork belly, miso caramel and apple slaw. Or think an impeccably fresh butterfish topped with a frothy burst of yuzu citrus sauce and an accompanying side of an emerald toss-up of pea pods, frilly kale, and green beans laced with an earthy mushroom-and-bonito flake sauce. Ravey’s style is inventive, fearless, and cool; not like popular culture, but the cool that belongs to jazz musicians, painters, or Paul Newman. Molecular gastronomy aside, it’s good to know he focuses on sourcing ingredients from local farmers and producers.
Red Sage’s wine selection is layered with generosity, offering many select domestic and European varieties. The collection includes numerous local producers and wine makers with familiar labels that will wow the most discriminating tastes, and the pricing is impressively approachable. The wine cooler where they are housed is a contemporary work of art, like many other special interior touches within Red Sage.
The restaurant also offers a private dining experience for any need. The smaller private dining room can accommodate 14 guests and the larger room can accommodate 14 to 30 guests. Both spaces are supremely elegant yet comfortable, perfect for receptions, corporate dinners, rehearsal dinners, baby and bridal showers - any gatherings, celebrations or intimate dinner parties.
Acclaimed for its inspired cuisine, Red Sage is the destination for your next romantic night out, business dinner and drinks or group event. Only 15 minutes north of the Santa Fe plaza, Red Sage offers warm hospitality, personalized service and a dining experience you will remember for a long time.
