Inspired by Southwestern design, the elements are certainly present but not overwhelming nor kitschy. A stunning sand painting screen separates a private dining room while outdoor spaces with fire pits keep guests cozy under warming heaters. An indoor collection of lantern-adorned trees overlook the guests below, adding a unique sense of ambiance to the restaurant. Adobe-encrusted walls are arranged in a chic and minimalistic fashion, flattering the space even further without distracting from the central motif. Comfortable seating can be enjoyed for a quick meal or an all-night social event overlooking the nearby pond and fountains underneath star-lit Colorado skies.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch are served at Kachina offering everything from “The Indian” Burrito made with bison meatloaf, cheddar and red chile sauce to Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes with prickly pear curd, whipped butter and maple syrup. The Navajo Tacos are a must for lunch with the several filling options inside the fluffy handheld bread shell that include The Santa Fe - smoked chicken, charred tomato salsa, asadero cheese and caramelized onion - or the mouthwatering Sonoran - a vegetarian option of calabacitas, avocado and ancho tomatillo salsa. Partnering with local farmers, Kachina also offers an in-house butcher shop, ensuring the freshest cuts of meat around with a new menu created whenever the specialty runs out.
