John Corigliano and Mark Adamo’s exciting new work is a juxtaposition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Bacchae by Euripides. The result is a searing account that points to the monster inside ourselves, not society.

SkyFire Restaurant at Bishop’s Lodge, Auberge Resorts Collection
"Concepted by "The Godfather of Southwestern Cuisine," Chef Dean Fearing's SkyFire draws inspiration from the diverse, rich ingredients and textures found in Mexico, and infuses them with unexpected modern techniques. The transformative element of fire is present throughout the bar, main dining room and terrace where piñon or cedar wood logs are burned to evoke a scent which roots you to our grounding atmosphere, and the wood-fired grill imparts complexity to bright, vibrant dishes."
Dine in the original and recently renovated dining room with artwork by Warren E. Rollins and every attention to detail. The bar program, overseen by Ashlin Wilhelm, is a craft cocktail lover’s dream, featuring rare and regional spirits.
