"Dark-wood paneling, rawhide lampshades and deep-rust booths lend a Western air to this otherwise clubby restaurant. An open floor plan, contemporary lighting and tasteful mix of modern and Native American art complete the look. Walk up two stairs to dining privacy and a good view of the bar scene.
American fare with an upscale twist emerges from this kitchen. Warm tortilla chips with three dips (smoked trout, creamy cheddar and jalapeno and guacamole) makes a perfect start. Rotisserie cooking is the big draw, and roasted chicken with garlicky mashed potatoes is worth a special trip. Five beef baby back ribs melt off the bone and in your mouth, but addictive peanut and cilantro-spiked coleslaw nearly steals the show. Lighter option? Make a meal out of the flavorful Macho salad (juicy roasted chicken, half avocados, chunky Montrachet and signature cornbread croutons)."
