Cuningham Group is responsible for a dramatic expansion of Isleta Casino & Resort, which includes four unique dining venues.

505 Fusion

The casual 505 Fusion offers versatile food in a chic environment that transforms into a local entertainment hot spot at night. Designers aimed to foster vibrant energy within the space by incorporating “glowing” columns, light features, and photo boxes that highlight local personalities, culture, and art.


Eagles Nest Café is the resort’s only 24-hour dining outlet. Local textile artisans were the inspiration for the weaving acrylic trellis that swoops overhead, drawing guests into the space.


The 54-seat TIWA Steakhouse offers guests an elegant dining option. Stone-faced walls and high ceilings lend the impression of being in a canyon, rounded out by natural images projected onto cloth screens hanging throughout the dining room.


Asian cuisine is prepared fresh to order in the open kitchen at Craves quick-serve bistro. The energetic space is punctuated with over-sized graphics, playful lighting fixtures, and bold red color.
