publisher’s note

|

Whether it be romantic or otherwise, Valentine’s Day is a day to affirm our love and admiration to those close to us. While these feelings should obviously be articulated more than once a year, this holiday gives a good reason to shake off our shyness and let our affections be known. Santa Fe, with its European-style winding roads and intimate restaurants, is the perfect place to make Valentine’s Day unique. Our community is blessed with so many wonderful restaurants, many with cozy corners and delicious menus to make Valentine’s Day something very special. In this issue’s pages, you’ll see many suggestions for visiting restaurants at any time of year, along with some great ideas for the upcoming holiday.  The most important thing to remember is to let those we love know that we love them. In my estimation, the best way to do so is to understand what the people you love want most for themselves, and to give them that. Love can so be very simple.

Cancer Foundation for New Mexico’s 12th annual Sweetheart Auction and ceramicist Rebecca Tobey will also cross the auction block. Peas ‘n’ Pod will present a dinner and dessert buffet, and a complimentary wine and beer bar will be available. CFFNM works to provide access to cancer treatment to Northern New Mexicans by offsetting the cost of transportation, lodging, and meals for those who otherwise might not be able to make the trip to Santa Fe for the care they need. This year alone, it has supported over 16,000 patient visits, up 45 percent from last year. One special component of the evening is the Honor Wall, on which sponsors can honor someone who has been touched by cancer. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door—best to get them early as this is a very popular event and an exceptional fundraiser. —Amanda Jackson

California and Montreal Guitar Trios at the Lensic A wintry way to chill a bottle of white—naturally.

Eastern Canada and the Western United States meet for an evening of classical, rock, jazz, and world music onstage at the Lensic on Sunday evening, February 12. The Montrealers—Marc Morin, Glenn Lévesque and Sébastien Dufour—use nylon strings, while the Californians—Bert Lams, Hideyo Moriya and Paul Richards—play steel. The musicians come from Belgium, Canada, Japan, and the United States, and their music is equally diverse.—Anne Maclachlan

Magic Mike tour visits Skylight

A tribute to the 2012 film about male strippers, the Magic Mike tour stops at Skylight to tease the audience.

Santa Fe being something of an un-Valentine’s sort of town— maybe we love everybody all the time, or perhaps we are a singleton’s city—we tend to spend our February 14ths on other expressions of affection. Topping the list are pets, whether we’re adopting a new one or cherishing an old pal. Some local restaurants love pet-guests, too, so there’s always a place to take a beloved furry companion out for a nibble. How we adore nature! Santa Fe has walking and biking trails, and winter makes a great excuse to head up to the Ski Basin for snowshoeing and skiing, or to ride a snowy trail on a fatbike. Enjoy a stroll on the scenic sidewalks along the river. Then there’s just curling up by the fireside with cocoa, a book, or a sweetheart —perhaps all three. 4

platinum entertainment group

Who needs a Valentine? Singles are the main audience for the all-male dance revue, based on the hit movie Magic Mike. Definitely for adults, the show features opportunities for “an up-close and memorable experience,” according to Skylight’s website. Not many details are available…rather like the coverage onstage.—AM

On Saturday afternoon, February 11, local performance art group Victory Grrrls honors feminist painter Judy Chicago. Dancers Niomi Fawn, Thais Mather, and Lucy Madeline will be interpreting Chicago’s works in a free show that pays homage to the social activism the artist expresses. Friday’s evening with Judy Chicago is sold out.—AM Victory Grrrls, February 11, 3 pm, free, form&concept, 435 S Guadalupe, formandconcept.center

The art collective Victory Grrrls will celebrate Judy Chicago the day after Chicago’s sold-out appearance at form & concept. Catch the Grrrls February 11 at 3 pm.

Of course, if you do have a Valentine, you can take advantage of the more traditional ways to spend February 14th, in the form of couples massages, cooking and art classes, or a quaint hotel getaway. Making a romantic statement with a unique piece from one Santa Fe’s incomparable jewelers is always a success. Don’t forget the exquisite dining; we are lovers of all the delicious cuisines found around the City Different. This year, you might find something extra special in our enclosed Santa Fe Taste of the Town guide. Whether chocolate, diamonds, or puppies are your personal best friends, you’ll find something to love about Valentine’s Day in Santa Fe.


special section

taste of the town Violet Crown Cinema

Although it’s often referred to as The City Different, I like to think of Santa Fe as The City Deliciously Different. The wonderful coming together of Spanish, Native, and Mexican cultures forms the perfectly delicious culinary history that affects our local cuisine even today, in the edible celebration of such tasty indigenous ingredients as corn, beans, our heralded chiles—both fresh and dried—spices, piñon, and a host of dishes that make up what is known as Norteño cookery. Our eclectic collection of eateries is what puts Santa Fe on the global gastronomic radar. International visitors arrive with their appetites piqued, having heard of our celebrated chiles and quickly forming their opinions on whether they prefer red, green, or Christmas. Puffy fried sopaipillas, dripping with honey; fiery stuffed chiles rellenos; plump enchiladas draped in melted cheese; smoky carne adovado; green chile stew with a kick—all help define our delicious identity to visiting palates. But the luscious lure of our New Mexican restaurants doesn’t stop there. We have dining options representing every major cuisine, and some that straddle two or three flavor profiles. Try sizzling chile ensconced in a crispy tempura batter at one of our Asian eateries; discover the wonders of the crêpe-like dosas at the South Indian Paper Dosa; dine on the Japanese small-plate izakaya at izanami; compare cassoulets at our cozy French cafés, or delight in elk tenderloin at Geronimo. And that’s just the beginning. Our annual Restaurant Week (February 19–26 this year) invites diners to explore new tastes and take advantage of terrific savings. In September, the popular Santa Fe Wine and Chile Fiesta is a must. Our markets introduce foodies to myriad international ingredients, while our cooking schools educate both professionals and novices. In this issue, we invite you to take a big bite of our exciting gastronomic scene and discover a cuisine that’s as old as our sprawling mesas and as current as today’s hot food trends. —John Vollertsen

coffee shops HQ Santa Fe

HQ Santa Fe

Ruben Rivera Photography

Industrial meets Old West at Santa Fe’s latest coffee shop, which is tucked into West Water Street. HQ creates their specialty coffees using the Caveman blend, and sparkles up fresh mimosas with Gruet, orange juice, and a luscious prickly pear purée. HQ is still developing a light menu, so check with them to see what’s on order. Editors’ Pick: The Caveman buttered coffee (think latte made with butter); who knew it would be so creamy? The butter enhances the coffee’s flavor rather than masking it, the way milk sometimes can. 411B W Water, hqsantafe.com

dawn to dusk and after dark A blink-and-you’ll-miss-it coffee stand along South St. Francis, this unassuming little house serves one-of-a-kind coffees, pastries, breads, quiches, oatmeal, and other goodies. It’s drive through or walk up only. Make sure to get a punch card! You’ll be back. Editors’ Pick: The Southwest Kick in the Butt. A perfectly Santa Fean combination of local red chile, cocoa powder, local organic espresso, steamed milk, and whipped cream with a sprinkle of cocoa and red chile on top. Spicy and sure to get your morning off to a good start! 1599 S St Francis, facebook.com/santafekaffeehaus

Ohori's Coffee Roasters Walking into Ohori’s Coffee, you know they’re something special. Daily micro-roasting small (30 pounds or less) batches—Ohori’s is the place to get artisan coffees from around the world with distinct roast profiles. 6

santafeanNOW.com

Editors’ Pick: Their very limited edition Maui Mokka beans (the “Champagne of the coffee world”) is absolutely perfect for cool mornings on your front porch. 1098 S St Francis or 505 Cerrillos, ohoriscoffee.com

While the industrial-looking parking lot and exterior suggests grab and go, we suggest you don’t. Inside, you’ll find yellow walls, lace curtains, and fantastic food. Renowned for more than cocoabased treats, Chocolate Maven serves sandwiches on freshly baked bread, along with breakfast dishes like quiches and omelettes. If you get a table in the right spot, you can watch as croissants are made. Cakes, brownies, cookies, and pastries are available to go. Editors’ Pick: For a weekend brunch, try the eggs Copenhagen or eggs Florentine, salmon or spinach versions of eggs Benedict. 821 W San Mateo, chocolatemaven.com


Café Fina This casual, mostly breakfast and lunch spot is popular with the Eldorado crowd, but definitely worth the drive from downtown. Along with creative brunch and lunch dishes, the house-made pastries, pies, and baked goods are sheer joy. They quietly serve a cracking dinner menu three days a week as well. Editors’ Pick: The Eldorado Omelet is packed with ham, guacamole, and asadero cheese, topped with New Mexico chile. Split a sweet or savory scone (they’re huge) with a friend. 624 Old Las Vegas Highway, cafefinasantafe.com

douglas merriam

The Pantry As the vintage sign in front implies, The Pantry dates to 1948. Their website claims they serve 26 tons of potatoes and seven tons of green chile a year, and from the number of cars in the parking lot and the crowd waiting to be seated, we don’t doubt it. Take a stool at the counter or wait for a table. Breakfast all day.

Café Fina

Editors’ Pick: The breakfast burritos. Choices include corned beef or carne adovada as well as the more common bacon or sausage. 1820 Cerrillos, pantrysantafe.com

Tia Sophia’s

nicholas Maryol

A local favorite, Tia Sophia’s is probably best known for its enormous and delicious breakfast platters. Filled with a crosssection of Santa Fe business owners, state and city workers, families, and politicos—even Bill Clinton has been spotted here—the wait staff may indeed know you by name and remember how you take your coffee.

Tia Sophia's

lunch San Francisco Street Bar & Grill Generous servings of everything from creative Santa Fe dishes to old-fashioned comfort food, many from the owners’ family recipes, make this casual restaurant worth a stop. It’s one of the most reasonably priced places near the Plaza.

Editors’ Pick: They might not have invented the breakfast burrito, but they have gone a long way toward making it a standard. 210 W San Francisco, tiasophias.com

Tecolote Café Breakfast and lunch, second-generation owners, a sun-drenched dining room, and in all probability several people you know at nearby tables—this neatly sums up Tecolote. Plenty of owl décor pays homage to the restaurant’s name.

Editors’ Pick: The green chile and tomato grilled cheese on black bread. Pair it with a tangy lemonade. 50 E San Francisco, sanfranbargrill.com

Editors’ Pick: Tecolote Café’s motto is “Great breakfast, no toast.” Once you’ve tried the contents of the bakery basket that accompanies most entrées, you’ll understand. 1616 St Michaels, tecolotecafe.com

The Beestro

douglas merriam

Plaza Café

It’s the oldest restaurant on the Plaza, with a welcoming ’50s diner feel and an equally friendly staff. Although the restaurant itself dates back to 1905, the Razatos family has operated it “only” since 1947. The menu options run the gamut from enchiladas to moussaka to a turkey dinner. Editors’ Pick: For breakfast, don’t miss the blue corn piñon pancakes. They’ll keep you going all morning. 54 Lincoln, thefamousplazacafe.com

narrative media

Plaza Café

The Beestro has evolved from a pop-up sandwich takeaway joint to a sitdown gastropub (The Root Cellar), market, and catering business. The menu changes daily (check the website), ranging from stuffed panini to flatbreads and house-made soups and salads. The Beestro

Editors’ Pick: The Cubano. Shredded citrus pork, pickles, Black Forest ham, Swiss, and mustard. Oh, my. 101 W Marcy, thebeestro.com February 2, 2017 NOW 7


Richard white

Jambo Café Jambo’s chef, Ahmed Obo, is from an island off the Kenyan coast. His cooking reflects the influences of Africa, India, Europe, and Arabia that converged in the East African region. Jambo Imports, a couple of doors down, sells African art, textiles, spices, and other goods. Proceeds help support children’s health care in Obo’s homeland. Editors’ Pick: Try everything. Really. 2010 Cerrillos, jambocafe.net

Bumble Bee’s Baja Grill

Editors’ Pick: The Tito burrito: rice, avocado, corn, cabbage, and seasonings with your choice of meats or vegetables. Try it with shrimp. 301 Jefferson, bumblebeesbajagrill.com

The Teahouse

Jambo Café

Back Street Bistro Just lunch, six days a week, take-out only at the moment. The worse the weather, the longer the lines for service at this place, featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The sandwiches, salads, and hot dogs, while good, are just a foil for the soup. Cash or check only. melanie brittain

©corriephoto.com

This location, just off North Guadalupe, was home to Santa Fe’s first Taco Bell, which explains the drive-up window. (That’s about the only similarity.) They use locally sourced, natural, and organic ingredients when possible, and the goal is to provide fast, casual, yet tasty food. Bumble Bee’s Baja Grill

Bambini’s

There is something a little bit magical about The Teahouse’s secluded, tree-covered location off Canyon Road. Bistro-style noshes range from salads and panini to soups and egg dishes, all of which complement the mindboggling array of teas and coffees on offer. Things move languidly here; no one will give you a second glance if you order a second pot.

Yes, that’s it: the trailer outside the ski-rental shop on St. Francis, just north of Cerrillos. The owners are so serious about bringing authentic cheesesteaks to the desert they have their bread sent in from Philadelphia. The menu features sandwiches, including a couple of vegetarian options, and a few sides. Editors’ Pick: Try the Storm Steak, a classic Philly cheesesteak with green chile added so you know you’re still in Santa Fe. 905 S St. Francis, bambinissantafe.com

Vinaigrette

Santa Fe Bite

Address doesn’t ring a bell? It’s just off Cerrillos, east of Don Diego, behind the dry cleaner. As the name implies, this place serves salads—20 or more on the menu at any given time. Much of the produce is grown on the restaurant owner’s farm. If you’re dining with someone who doesn’t think one of the salads will be enough (it will be), sandwiches, soups, and dessert are also available.

Burger aficionados wailed and rent their garments when word came in 2013 that the proprietors of Bobcat Bite had lost their lease. Fortunately for all, they found new digs downtown, and burger-lovers nationwide can sleep easy. Serving three meals a day, the menu leans towards classics like steak and eggs, burgers, and milkshakes.

Vinaigrette

Bambini’s

douglas merriam

Editors’ Pick: The Assam FTGFOP Mangalam [yes, that’s really the name] is malty, dark, and luscious. Take some home with you to enjoy later. 821 Canyon, teahousesantafe.com

Back Street Bistro

Editors’ Pick: It’s all about the soup—eight homemade varieties every day. Hungarian mushroom is served daily for a reason: it’s that good. 513 Camino de los Marquez, backstreetbistrodailysoup.blogspot.com

Editors’ Pick: The Chop Chop: romaine with tomatoes, bell pepper, garbanzos, salami, roast chicken, and provolone in a creamy balsamic dressing. 709 Don Cubero Alley, vinaigretteonline.com 8

santafeanNOW.com

Editors’ Pick: The green chile cheeseburger charmed even our burger-resistant staff editor. Generously sized and supplied, and oh-so-juicy, it’s a can’t-miss. 311 Old Santa Fe Trl, santafebite.com

Clafoutis Tucked in behind a Lotaburger, this French café serves omelettes, quiches, sandwiches, crêpes, salads, and pastry. Breakfast and lunch only. Editors’ Pick: Take a baguette home with you for later. You won’t regret it. 402 N Guadalupe (moving to 333 Cordova in late March), facebook.com/Clafoutis


Tune-Up Café Tune-Up’s well-deserved reputation is so good that there’s always a line (or at the very least, a crowd). The tiny café is housed in a small adobe, adding to its friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Editors’ Pick: The green chile stew is hot in every sense of the word; a great choice for a tasty and satisfying bowl on a chilly day. 1115 Hickox, tuneupsantafe.com

Tune-Up Café

El Parasol

sergio salvador

This small group of restaurants scattered across Española, Los Alamos, and Santa Fe started in 1958 as a taco and tamale stand on Española’s main street. Burritos, tamales, burgers, and tacos are slid across the counter or handed through the drive-through in brown paper bags. Don’t be fooled by the humble presentation; this is top-notch food.

El Parasol

Editors’ Pick: The bean burrito with green chile. The beans are cooked to creamy perfection, and just the right amounts of chile and cheese complete the dish. 1833 Cerrillos, elparasol.com

India House As soon as you enter, you’re greeted with the scent of Indian spices, Indian music, and softspoken waiters, all promising a lovely respite from daily strife. It certainly delivers on that. Editors’ Pick: For lunch, have the buffet—a chance to try several different entrées, appetizers, tandoori bread, and dessert. 2501 Cerrillos, indiahousenm.com

happy hour New Mexico Hard Cider With 24 ciders and beers on tap, the problem lies in narrowing down what you want to try. They serve some food—sandwiches and appetizers—and occasionally bring in entertainment, but the main focus here is on the array of ciders. Editors’ Pick: Try the Manzana Muerte Crab Apple blend, if it’s available. 505 Cerrillos, Unit A-105, nmcider.com

El Farol One of Santa Fe’s oldest dining establishments, El Farol is everything Spanish, from hot and cold tapas and regional spirits to nightly entertainment that includes, naturally, flamenco. Open for lunch and dinner, this Canyon Road fixture is an essential stop. Editors’ Pick: The assorted tapas, for which El Farol is famous, complement the wide assortments of wine. There really is something for every craving. 808 Canyon, elfarolsantafe.com

The Pink Adobe’s Dragon Room Lounge is the place for locals and visitors alike. Voted one of the top 19 bars in the world, it is an enchanting place to visit, sit, and have a sip. Located on the downtown end of the Old Santa Fe Trail, it’s a short walk to galleries and other places of interest. Don't forget to look up. Yes, up. Editors’ Pick: While some tasty bites are available, we were especially happy to find a strong, peppery ginger beer that kept us refilling our glass; and the popcorn makes a snappy side. 406 Old Santa Fe Trl, thepinkadobe.com

Secreto Lounge Secreto at Hotel St. Francis is a favorite with locals, helmed by award-winning mixologist Chris Milligan. Secreto uses only fresh fruits, herbs, and veggies in their handmade signature and classic cocktails. A great selection of wines, beers, sherries, and sangrias pairs well with upscale bar food in a cozy setting. Editors’ Pick: Deceptively light with elderflower liqueur, jalapeño, and fresh cucumber, the Spicy Reprise feels like a fruity agua fresca—but Novo Fogo cachaça and a chile salt rim give it a delightful and memorable kick. 210 Don Gaspar, Suite A, at Hotel St. Francis, secretolounge.com

dinner Cafe Sonder douglas merriam

tune-up cafe

The Pink Adobe

Cafe Sonder

New meets old on Guadalupe: the old Zia Diner is the new Cafe Sonder. Owners of the old Plaza Café have established this new spot. It's open from 7 am–9 pm, serving three meals a day. The menu leans classic American with occasional nods to New Mexican cuisine and the owners’ Greek heritage.

Editors’ Pick: The fisherman’s stew. It’s an old classic with some new touches. 326 S Guadalupe, cafesonder.com February 2, 2017 NOW 9


Go for the atmosphere, stay for a combination plate—there are a few to choose from—complemented by a Chimayó cocktail. The restaurant feels more like dining in a historic home, and no wonder; the property has been in the family for centuries. The more-than-50-year-old restaurant is under the supervision of matriarch Florence Jaramillo, and it won the coveted James Beard Award in 2016. Editors’ Pick: Any of the combination plates. 300 Juan Medina Rd, Chimayó, ranchodechimayo.com Rancho de Chimayó

Pizza Centro

Editors’ Pick: Alphabet City comes with vegetable toppings, including flash-fried eggplant, a balsamic glaze, marinara, and mozzarella. 418 Cerrillos, pizzacentronys.com also Southside and Eldorado locations

The Shed Open since 1953, the third generation of the Carswell family is now in charge of The Shed and its sister restaurant, La Choza. The restaurant is just east of the Plaza in an old hacienda dating back to 1690, with enough Santa Fe charm to keep you coming back forever.

Radish & Rye Radish & Rye

douglas merriam

New York–style pizzas, with the classic thin, handmade crust and a wide variety of toppings, make Pizza Centro different from the rest. They offer several specialty pizzas, all named after New York neighborhoods, or you can build your own. They also serve salads and sandwiches, with slices available until 5 pm.

A celebration of farm to table, American cuisine, Radish & Rye is one of those places you’ll think about for a long time. The brief dinner and small plates menus feature just a handful of meat-centric dishes. The bourbon menu? That’s another matter altogether. If you love bourbon, this place is Wonderland.

Editors’ Pick: The grilled pork chop with pork belly, polenta, and mushroom reduction is generous and satisfying, especially when paired with a signature cocktail made with Buffalo Trace bourbon. 548 Agua Fria, radishandrye.com

Tomasita’s The old red brick building housing Tomasita’s was originally the station for the Chile Line, a narrow gauge railroad that stretched from Santa Fe to Antonito, Colorado. The restaurant has occupied it for decades, serving the chile that gave the railroad a name and a purpose.

Editors’ Pick: Anything with The Shed’s red chile: try it on the blue corn enchiladas. 113 E Palace, sfshed.com

Editors’ Pick: The frozen margaritas. There’s often a wait for a table, and one of these makes the time pass quickly. Available with either a splash of Grand Marnier or with a swirl of sangria. 500 S Guadalupe, tomasitas.com

The Compound

Jinja Bar & Bistro

The Compound has been a Santa Fe’s fine-dining destination for decades. The restaurant hosts celebrities and tourists as well as locals celebrating special events or just looking for a good meal in elegant surroundings.

Asian-fusion and South Pacific cuisine, with décor to match. The menu is huge and varied, and the bartenders know their way around drinks served with tiny paper umbrellas.

Editors’ Pick: Sweetbreads with foie gras. 653 Canyon, compoundrestaurant.com

Editors’ Pick: On a snowy night, the home-style chicken udon (also available with marinated tofu) will take the chill out of your bones. 510 N Guadalupe, jinjabistro.com

Shohko Café

The Ranch House

The Fukuda family has run Shohko Café since 1975, and they are proud to have been the first to serve sushi in New Mexico. The menu encompasses Japanese cuisine from noodles to tempura to all forms of sushi.

With more seating than it appears to have, The Ranch House is an ideal go-to option when you’re hungry and realize you’ve forgotten to make reservations. The extensive lunch and dinner menus are barbecue-forward, but there are plenty of salads, sandwiches, and classic New Mexico entrees to satisfy all comers.

Editors’ Pick: Sake. Ayame, the oldest of the Fukuda sisters, and her father, Hiro, also own a sake distributorship and are very knowledgeable, offering occasional pairings and classes. 321 Johnson, shohkocafe.com

Editors’ Pick: The red chile honey-glazed baby back ribs fall off the bone. But two amazing sides—the kicky, creamy green chile slaw and the flavorful Yukon gold potato salad—nearly steal the limelight. 2571 Cristo’s Rd, theranchhousesantafe.com

Rancho de Chimayó


Cowgirl BBQ

Paper Dosa

The beautifully decorated restaurant presents the cuisine of Southern India, which differs greatly from the Northern version more familiar in most U.S. restaurants. They specialize in dosas: large crêpes made from a fermented rice and lentil batter, stuffed with your choice of meat or vegetable fillings.

Come for the margaritas, stay for the BBQ, end the night with live music in the bar. Cowgirl’s country-western menu features yak meatloaf, a mixed-game burger, and a buffalo burger as well as the more traditional beef and pork entrées, a bit of fish, and some New Mexican plates.

Editors’ Pick: Try the classic masala dosa: unlike anything else. The rasam (soup) is spicy, hearty, and perfectly seasoned. 551 Cordova, paper-dosa.com

Editors’ Pick: How can you turn down a steak followed by a baked potato dessert? This one is created from vanilla ice cream dusted with cocoa, then topped with whipped (“sour”) cream and a pat of “butter.” Try it. Trust us. 319 S Guadalupe, cowgirlsantafe.com

Mariscos la Playa Hand-carved and gaily painted wooden chairs, alongside seaside murals and décor, underscore that this place is about two things: Mexico and fish. Whole fish, filets, and shellfish are all presented in the style of the owners’ native land, with a few nonseafood selections for the one in your party who doesn’t like fish. Editors’ Pick: The “come back to life” soup or shrimp burritos will make you wonder why, if you’re this close to a Mexican beach, there’s no sand on the floor. 537 W Cordova, mariscoslaplayarestaurant.com

L’Olivier

douglas merriam

After more than 20 years of cooking in other people’s restaurants, Chef Xavier Grenet came to Santa Fe to open his own. Although he is French and trained in France, Grenet’s goal is to present both classic and local dishes with his own imprint. L’Olivier also serves special holiday meals and the occasional wine dinner.

L’Olivier

Editors’ Pick: On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, L’Olivier serves a threecourse prix fixe dinner. Cassoulet or coq au vin and a daily fish special, plus an appetizer and dessert, will give you a good introduction to the restaurant. 229 Galisteo, loliviersantafe.com

late-night noshes Violet Crown Cinema Santa Fe’s newest cinemaplex has found a way to draw movie lovers off their sofas and away from streaming videos. Here, you can order from a broad menu that goes well beyond the “bar food” definition; oversized seats with pull-down trays and cupholders make it easy to carry your dinner and wine into the theater and feel right at home. Editors’ Pick: The crispy-tender Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar, red onion, and bacon are a resounding editorial favorite. 1606 Alcaldesa, santafe.violetcrown.com

Del Charro

douglas merriam

Del Charro

Serving bar bites rather than full meals, Del Charro’s menu hits the spot when you want to cap the night but not weigh it down. With several rooms, the atmosphere is cozy; and if you can snag a table by one of the fireplaces, so much the better. Editors’ Pick: Locals and tourists rave about the burgers. The stuffed green chile burger is a big ol’ messy plate of heaven. 101 W Alameda, delcharro.com

Cowgirl BBQ

Paper Dosa

Il Piatto The second-go-round late-night happy hour is a light and satisfying way to finish an evening after a concert or to hang out with fellow night owls. The ever-evolving dinner menu includes salads, seafood, pasta, and classic Italian dishes. Editors’ Pick: Sample the charcuterie plate with a friend; the savory meats, pickles, and mustards pair beautifully with a flute of crisp prosecco. 95 W Marcy, ilpiattosantafe.com

The Burger Stand at Burro Alley The Burger Stand is a newcomer to Santa Fe’s food scene, specializing in small batch beer and yes, burgers. Open until 11 pm, it adds another needed option for dinner after a movie. Several types of burgers, “hawt doggz,” seven varieties of fries, catfish, and a selection of shakes and floats make this a kale-free zone. Editors’ Pick: Crispy, crispy fries, hot and tender inside. There’s a wall of sauces to experiment with, from Parmesan aioli to a chile-cocoa barbecue (outstanding; don’t not try this). 207 W San Francisco, santafeburgersandbeer.com

Il Vicino Wood-fired pizzas and microbrewed ales served until 10 pm make Il Vicino a popular stop when you need a late dinner. Salads, calzone, sandwiches, and a couple of pasta dishes round out the menu. Order at the counter and find a table: your food and drink will be delivered shortly. Editors’ Pick: The Tartufo pizza is new, featuring portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, and chopped parsley over a truffle mushroom cream base. 321 W San Francisco, ilvicino.com February 2, 2017 NOW 11

Ingredients don’t get more “farm-to-table” than at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, open at the Railyard throughout the year.

Above: At Santa Fe Olive Oil & Balsamic Company, you can sample one of their many fine European-style olive oils, along with white and dark balsamic vinegars.

the secret ingredient spices, specialty foods, and markets

Balsamic Co. and Oleaceae downtown are happy to offer samples of their distinctive infused olive oils and heavenly balsamic vinegars; ship some to a friend. In a city with over 400 restaurants, food markets of all kinds are patronized regularly by discerning chefs and restaurateurs. Cheesemongers of Santa Fe on Marcy Street is an epicurean’s delight, offering a mouthwatering array of artisan cheeses and cured meats plus cheese tasting and cheese and wine pairing classes. Talin Market in the Luna district at Cerrillos and Manhattan focuses on Asian ingredients (and serves killer noodle dishes). For gourmet specialty foods and condiments, baked goods, meats, and natural and organic ingredients, Kaune’s on Old Santa Fe Trail is a longtime neighborhood favorite, while national chain Whole Foods offers a huge selection and superior freshness at both of its Santa Fe locations.—Amy Gross

Cheesemongers of santa fe

As any chef knows, your dishes are only as good as your ingredients. These days, home cooking enthusiasts are just as eager as the pros to find the highest quality ingredients and specialty items to elevate their cooking to new heights. Santa Fe’s savvy foodies and avid cooks naturally start at the Santa Fe Farmers Market in the Railyard, open Saturday mornings throughout the year and on additional days May through November. You’ll likely bump elbows with a local chef or two as you peruse the farm-to-table produce, organic meats, freshly baked artisan breads, and locally made jams and preserves. Be sure to engage the vendors; they love to share their growing and farming techniques. A host of fun (and fragrant) spice and olive oil shops have popped up recently in the City Different, such as the Savory Spice Shop on Galisteo, offering a spice club to help boost your collection. Both Santa Fe Olive Oil &

Above: Cheesemongers of Santa Fe is the first place to start if you’re looking for a distinctive, artisan cheese, such as this Stichelton, a fragrant English blue.


The City Different is known for unbelievably good food— from world-class restaurants to mom-and-pop shops (and of course, the green chile). We Santa Feans love our food and enjoy sharing meals. For locals and visitors alike, Santa Fe has several fantastic options to bring high-quality sit-down meals into your own home. For home chef that needs a little help, the Savory Spice Shop sells seasonings, but will also teach you the best way to incorporate them into your cooking. Classes are demonstration-style (but you do leave with a full belly!) and emphasize the spices used. The Santa Fe branch is managed by Kate Wheeler, who has a culinary arts degree from Johnson & Wales University and is eager to share her knowledge. The Santa Fe School of Cooking offers regularly scheduled cooking classes (some hands-on) and a twiceyearly, hands-on, culinary boot camp. The sessions often focus on local favorites—tamales, tacos, rellenos, green chile, and more. The culinary boot camp is an intensive three-day program that covers everything from knife skills to flavor labs, and culminates in a final exam where you prepare a meal for some of Santa Fe’s most refined palates. If those options don’t quite meet your needs, then how about a class with a celebrity chef? Las Cosas Kitchen Shoppe is a full-fledged cooking mecca, with the added bonus of having Chef Johnny Vee, who teaches approximately 20 classes each month. These classes are hands-on, and you get to take home the food you make. Topics are broad in range, covering everything from kidfriendly options to kitchen skills for adults, and traditional red-chile foods to dishes from the Koreatown cookbook. Sometimes guest chefs stop by to teach classes in their individual specialties.—Amanda Jackson

and always highly educational—tastings, events, and other fun things to do year-round. If you’d rather buy your wine and spirits from a local’s go-to, head over to Kokoman Fine Wines & Liquor in Pojoaque. Though it may look like a bit of a dive, inside you will find a fantastic selection of mid-range to high-end wine and other beverages to tickle your tongue. For those who’d much rather have a good beer, Santa Fe Brewing Company has an ideal location (and a new music venue called The Bridge) on the south end of town, with two stories, a shuffleboard table and darts, a patio, and gorgeous mountain views for miles. Their IPA isn’t bad, either. Blue Corn Café & Brewery also brews its own beers and serves a mean green chile cheeseburger. Don’t miss the Santa Fe Spirits downtown tasting room. Labeled as the Southwest’s preeminent artisan distillery, they serve seven unique spirits (Silver Coyote pure malt whiskey, anyone?) and conduct hourly tours, by reservation, of their Southside distillery premises. Finally, what is a sip of the Southwest without the lime-and-salty tang of a cool margarita? Santa Fe offers its very own Margarita Trail, complete with $3 passports that can be stamped to redeem gifts, and also entitle the holder to a $1 reduction in the price of the margarita on offer. Nearly three dozen establishments participate in the Santa Fe area, so you’ll become an expert in no time. —Amanda Jackson

The recent bubbly buzz around Santa Fe has been the new Gruet Santa Fe tasting room downtown in the Hotel St. Francis—an upscale yet cozy enclave with a distinctly Old European feel and an emphasis on sparkling wines. However, the Santa Fe area is home to numerous wineries, breweries, and tasting rooms—pretty much whatever kind of libation you enjoy can be found here. In Santa Fe, there are two delightful options for a lovely meal, plus the opportunity to purchase the wine enjoyed with it: La Casa Sena Restaurant and Wine Shop and Arroyo Vino Restaurant and Wine Shop. Both venues have regular tastings, and often host seminars, workshops, and wine paring dinners. If you want to venture a little out of town, a trip to Estrella Del Norte Vineyard is a must. Situated on the historic high road to Taos, this vineyard offers tours—which are often historical
