Signature Experiences on Property 

Cress on Oak Creek, L’Auberge de Sedona’s award-winning fine dining venue, will continue the celebrations at the bar with the exclusive Ruby Red Cocktail. As a nod to the resort’s opening year, L’Auberge de Sedona is offering a 1980s-inspired Ruby Red Cocktail to toast to 40 years.

The Cress Bar will also integrate 1980s-themed cocktails, with a 2024 twist, to honor the fruity fun cocktail decade with a colorful Cosmo and French Martini.

Dining at Cress on Oak Creek will be enhanced as Pastry Chef Donna Yuen has created a signature anniversary dessert that will grace the dinner menus from February through May. The dessert will change seasonally beginning with profiteroles enriched by vanilla gelato and chocolate sauce, a classic dessert modernized with Yuen’s undisputed pastry talent. Throughout the month of May, Executive Chef Ryan Swanson will create a special tasting menu as a nod to the classic 1980s dishes that guests of L’Auberge de Sedona were served at the opening of the resort. This “short story menu” will incorporate subtle nods to Frenchman Jean Rocchi – the chef who played a pivotal role in the resort’s inception – using select locally sourced ingredients for dishes that honor his Alsacian roots such as a flavorful sumac and urfa crusted lamb rack.
