Selected Restaurants

If it’s your first time in Santa Fe you must try the local cuisine which is unique to this region. Savor New Mexico’s singular traditional cuisine, created over centuries from the early blend of Native American and Spanish cultures and the later Anglo influences that first arrived via the Santa Fe Trail. Here you’ll savor dishes like enchiladas, burritos, tamales, sopapillas, fry bread, firy meat stews, carne odovada (pork braised in copious quantities of red chile), and stuffed pockets of cornmeal dough called gorditas. Even if you have dishes by these names elsewhere, you’ll be delighted with the differences here. The most obvious distinctions involve the generous use of our celebrated fresh green chiles of their more mature dried red counterparts, along with beans, squash, and corn products such as blue corn meal, posole and chicos.
