“We are confident that this is the right decision at this time,” continues Governor Mora, Sr. “Our best thoughts continue to be with those directly affected by this virus.”

The Cottonwood Kitchen at Tesuque Casino – featuring an inspired menu and welcoming environment, with an exhibition kitchen, ample lounge and bar area overlooking the casino floor, and a 75-seat outdoor patio – is sure to impress.
The Pueblo of Tesuque has existed in the foothills of the gorgeous Sangre de Cristo mountains since as early as 1200 AD.
Tesuque is the Spanish variation of a traditional Tewa language name for “village of the narrow place of the cottonwood trees.” The beauty of this magnificent landscape also contributed to the design and construction of the casino, with massive walls of windows giving every guest a front row seat to some of the most spectacular imagery that nature has to offer.
