Executive Chef Kurt Zuger masterfully creates a menu that focuses on local ingredients and only the highest quality meat and produce. Begin an evening here with the perfectly crafted martini from the O Room Martini Lounge and top off the meal with a tableside liquid nitrogen sorbet presentation or make your own smores while sitting around the fire pit retreat. Standouts at O’s include the blue cheese and tomato-jam burger, sweet potato-encrusted salmon or the 36-hour slow roasted sous vide-braised buffalo short ribs.
