STORY BY T. L. TESTERMAN | PHOTOS BY RICK ROMANCITO

Old Martina’s Hall opts for ‘burgers, ribs and beets’ menu ON ANY GIVEN EVENING in the wellequipped kitchen of Old Martina’s Hall at 4140 State Road 68, Ranchos de Taos, Chef John Lamendola is expertly preparing food from one of the most eclectic menus in Taos: “burgers, ribs and beets.” He calls the new food offerings “creatively challenging, a fusion of all fresh ingredients and ribs that are off the chain. It’s the way we select the meat, marinate it, rub it, and cook it so it is moist and juicy and falls right off the bone.” One of the various burger options includes a Ramen burger, Asianinspired, from freshly ground meat glazed with teriyaki sauce, topped with red onion, between a fresh bun made of ramen noodles. Chef Lamendola said craft and international beers are on the menu that are an excellent match with the burgers and ribs. Santa Fe Pale Ale, for example, is described “as full-bodied while asserting its American origin with a healthy nose resplendent with Cascade, Cluster and Willamette hops. German Andechs is also on the menu, brewed at the Andechs monastery by the Benedictine 24

monks of St. Boniface in Munich and Andechs. Another good burger pairing is the Blue Moon Belgian White, loved for its subtle sweetness and citrusy flavor,” added Lamendola.’ In fact, Martina’s has something for everyone, including vegan and vegetarian options, steaks, seafood and salads. In keeping with the “burgers, ribs and beets,” theme, a beet carpaccio is offered with greens and goat cheese, drizzled with a pomegranate dressing, the recipe for which remains top secret. A favorite burger of general manager Sebastian Walther’s is the pulled beef burger, a juicy, sweet and spicy beef patty topped with crispy prawns and onions. He said the prawns take the burger to another level. “Divine” is a common postconsumption phrase he has heard from diners. Walther, who took the leadership position a few months ago, said Martina Gebhardt, the owner of OMH, tasked him with a very specific mission: “to build the soul of the restaurant with well-executed soul food and make it easy and approachable. She [Gebhardt] made this investment for the people of Taos; it’s a gift to the community.”

and prices adjusted so that no dish is over $20, putting the gourmet burgers in a mid-range around $10 - $14 with a generous side dish included. Walther said he sees OMH as a place where locals can go every day. “We want to find our spot, not compete with other burger joints in town, but rather offer something different, an upscale approach to food, all homemade, locally sourced and affordable.’ He added, “we needed to find a way to match all the love and money Martina put into the building.” The restaurant and hall is practically a town institution and certainly one of its most notable places. The venue’s website describes the history of the building, formerly known as The Old Martínez Hall, and its newly renovated interior that includes well-preserved vigas spanning above the lengths of its thick adobe walls. The rich and colorful musical history includes classic acts, such as Taj Mahal, Abraxas and Ricky Nelson. Many locals still remember Dennis Hopper’s wild parties and the El Padrino bar, owned for generations by the Martínez family.

Walther visited Taos in November 2017 to develop a strategy. Naturally, he went to every food venue in town and absorbed the unique culture. He said, “Taos is a small, beautiful town with a very special community. We don’t want to focus on tourism. We want something successful all year.” What he thought OMH needed was a clear identity DINING OUT SUMMER/FALL 2018


FOR MORE INFORMATION OR RESERVATIONS, CALL (575) 758-3003, OLDMARTINASHALL.COM

Walther was born into hospitality, literally. His father managed a hotel in Chicago, in which Walther was born. He is well acquainted with the world of five-star restaurants, having risen through the ranks of The Mandarin Oriental, one of the most prestigious hotel chains in the world. His most recent job was as the restaurant and bar manager of the Mandarin Oriental, in Munich, Germany. Walther loves the challenge of good customer service, from managing the staff to taking care of customers. He said, “You’ve got to make the dining experience fun for the TAOSMENUS.COM

10-year-old and then be respectful to the 75-year-old couple. I like working with people of any kind.” He said he found his calling in the restaurant business because he loves food. “I would drive three hours for a restaurant experience, and I love cooking ... giving people a good time.” He added that his approach to managing his staff is to focus on their unique personalities. “All my life I tell my team to be the way you are. Everyone is special. Guests feel it if you give your team back-up to be who they are.” He continued, “customer service is all about attention, read body language, know what your guest wants to order before they do.”

Chef Lamendola added, “If you use good ingredients, that is half the battle.” Lamendola owned and managed restaurants in Taos. He moved to Florida for a few years and then returned two years ago. Ultimately, Walther sees the hall being brought back to life with more events. There are movie and dinner nights planned, Sunday brunch with kids’ movies playing in the hall, and Friday and Saturday dances with different kinds of music: country, and western, Spanish and hip-hop. Lunch hours are planned for late spring and summer, and the menu will expand to meet popular demand and celebrate local seasonal produce. 25

IT’S SUMMERTIME IN TAOS and tasty

fresh foods abound – from nearby farms and ranches to kitchen gardens and greenhouses. Enjoy the bounty at these three cafés that appeal to locals and travelers alike. Surrounded by scenic views, they invite a stroll through enticing shops, galleries and fine boutiques.

FARMHOUSE CAFE AND BAKERY

and sponsors Farm-to-School garden projects and nutrition/ cooking classes for first-graders.

1405 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, El Prado Open daily, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., 575-758-5683

Everything on the menu is made with organic and local ingredients, sourced from over 20 local farms and ranches. Choose from breakfasts (served all day), burgers made from local bison or grass-fed beef, sandwiches, and entrees such as Picadillo Bison Empanadas, Curried Squash Pie, and Vegetarian Lasagna. Glutenfree and vegan options are available. 

Tucked into one of the most pastoral settings that Taos has to offer, the Farmhouse Café & Bakery offers an outdoor patio amidst apple trees, a flowing koi pond, flower beds and a worldclass wind sculpture garden with breathtaking views of Taos Mountain. Take a stroll through nearby shops that offer fun home furnishings, local art, and sheepskin jackets, or just sit back and enjoy the scenery. This café with a mission serves 600 local, organic school meals every day to local school children,

“This summer we are harvesting fresh salad greens, herbs, and over 20 different vegetables from our on-site garden,” owner Micah Roseberry noted.  The Farmhouse bakery offers

house-made croissants, scones and their best-selling organic, gluten-free carrot cake made with home-grown carrots. These go perfectly with one of their espresso drinks or housemade chai.  “Eating at Farmhouse supports the local farming network and agriculture tradition. Every bite makes a difference,” Roseberry exclaimed.  This summer, Farmhouse will host a series of Farm-to-Table dinners featuring Grammyaward winning musician and Taos Pueblo farmer Robert Mirabal. The dinners feature local and wild-sourced foods and benefit a collaborative project with Tiwa Farms and Farmhouse School lunch program.  C O N T I N U E S PA G E 4 6

MANZANITA MARKET

103 N. Plaza, Tues – Sun, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 575-613-4088 Located on the historic Taos Plaza, Manzanita Market is an all-organic community café offering locallyproduced foods with a menu that rotates with the seasons. “We built the Market on the Plaza with the idea of offering a space to locals to be a community and for those visiting our town, a selection of goods to take home with them handmade only by our local people,” said owner Jennifer Hart.    The spacious one-room café feels like a farmhouse kitchen with its fresh and airy atmosphere, complete with Taos-made rustic chandeliers and artwork. Sit at a shared community table or one of several small private tables made by a local woodworker. Dried, pickled and salted preserved foods displayed in large glass jars add a splash of colorful charm. 

“Our menu is fun and reflective of local ingredients and modern cuisine,” says Hart. Manzanita’s serves salads, soups (including a 24hour nutritious bone broth), one-pot meals and hot and cold sandwiches. Gluten-free bread is available. Quench your thirst with a seasonal elixir, smoothie or blended herbal tea created by an in-house herbalist. Summer is perfect for home-made ice-cream prepared with local eggs, organic milk, raw sugar, local fruits, mints and handmade caramel. Hart’s favorite features wild mint from Taos Pueblo and dark chocolate chips. Manzanita is also starting to make vegan coconut ice creams.  After a meal at Manzanita, it’s a nice stroll through the Plaza’s shops and galleries, or the John Dunn shops to Bent Street. Enjoy an array of clothing boutiques, galleries, and shops with goodies like gems and minerals, leather goods, jewelry, books, fine fabrics, yarn, quilting material, toys and games and a delightful collection of Southwest souvenirs. 

SOL FOOD CAFE

591 Hondo Seco Road, Arroyo Seco Daily, 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. 575-776-5765 Located inside a country-style natural foods market the Sol Food Café has an informal, friendly atmosphere and aims to use natural, organic and local ingredients whenever possible. The market sells food and trendy boutique items, with half their items locallysourced.

New on the menu this summer are pulled pork sandwiches. A healthy variety of salads, superfood and fruit smoothies, a juice and espresso bar round out the menu.    “We provide a service that includes a little bit of TAOSMENUS.COM

everything,” says Sol Food owner Anna Woodall. “Lots of people hang out here,” she adds. “Sol Food has become a vital part of the community.” The village of Arroyo Seco has a number of quaint shops, boutiques and galleries. Next door to Sol Food is Weaving Southwest, owned and operated by the granddaughter of famed weaver Rachel Brown. Stop in and swoon over the colors and textures

of their hand-dyed wool and weavings. Then, meander back in time to visit the old adobe church of this small New Mexican village. Restored in recent years, it retains its original character. After lunch, grab a beer at Abe’s Cantina or an ice-cream at Taos Cow. Or, head up to the Taos Ski Valley for a mountain hike. Before you go, pack some healthy snacks from the Sol Food Market.  47

THE

OF TAOS

Doc Martin’s Restaurant welcomes summer with bold flavors at the Historic Taos Inn

BY YVONNE PESQUERA | PHOTOS BY MORGAN TIMMS

THE HISTORIC TAOS INN IS THE EPITOME OF TAOS. In fact, this lodging’s nearly 100-year presence on the main road is a major contributing characteristic of downtown Taos. Its Adobe Bar is known as the “Living Room of Taos” for its nightly live music that brings together community members and travelers.

came to Taos as the county’s first, and only, physician. He bought the largest of the houses, which is now Doc Martin’s Restaurant. Doc was a rugged individualist and dearly beloved because of his deep concern for his fellow man. In local lore, he is well-known for traveling miles all over the county –– hitching up a team of horses and later his tin lizzie –– through mud and snow to set bones, break fevers and deliver babies.

In its Doc Martin’s Restaurant, the tastes of Taos await in a fine dining setting.

Chef Bill Hartig is the culinary talent behind the creations for a range of menus encompassing lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, holidays and wine pairings.

In the 1890s, Dr. Thomas Paul (Doc) Martin

“We use much season produce from this

60

DINING OUT SUMMER/FALL 2018


region,” said Hartig. “Our focus is to source as much local food as possible as well ethically sourced meats.” A quick glance at the dinner menu shows imaginative dishes of purple vegetable curry, using forbidden rice and coconut broth, and pasta primavera featuring house made spinach pappardelle, seasonal vegetable, and lemon pesto butter. Hartig says, “We make our own tortillas for our tacos, and our (own) breads.” Grace Lawrie, marketing director for the Taos Inn, says, “An added benefit is that it just smells delicious in here for our guests.” A fresh bread plate is offered as a starter on the dinner menu and is served with balsamic, extra-virgin olive oil and maître d’hotel butter. The lunch menu offers a Picadillo taco, which is described as a Northern New Mexico beef taco, and a vegetarian Soyrizo taco prepared with house-made chickpea and tofu “chorizo,” potato hash, hibiscus pickled red onion, and cilantro. Our menu is great for those who are conscious of food allergens, such as vegan and glutenfree. says Lawrie. Doc Martin’s Restaurant has won the “Wine Spectator ‘Best of’ Award” for more than 30 years running. Its wine list offers international whites, reds, rosés, and dessert wines. From local, family-owned vineyards, they offer Gruet sparkling wine from Albuquerque and a Sangiovese from Vivac in nearby Dixon. Local brews are from Santa Fe Brewing Company and La Cumbre Brewing Company in Albuquerque. “Our wine list is pretty fluid. We are always bringing in new wines. We pair our daily specials with recommended wines,” says Hartig. TAOSMENUS.COM

THE SUMMER MENU TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE LOCAL GROWING SEASON FOR LOCAL FARMERS. ALSO ON-SITE, THE TAOS INN HAS A GREENHOUSE FOR GROWING THEIR OWN GREENS, AND THEY HAVE OUR OWN HERB GARDEN — ALL OF WHICH CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY THEIR MENU CREATIONS. “We prepare three to six specials a night. As a diner, you’re getting what’s available at that time. It’s really fun to let Chef Hartig be creative in real time,” says Lawrie. Hartig has about 20 years of experience working in restaurants. He has worked in Albuquerque at Scalo, Artichoke Café and Zinc. Before moving to Taos, he ran his own restaurant for a short time. “I love working in Taos. When I’m outside hiking with family, I get inspired for cooking with local foraging, like porcini mushrooms,” says Hartig. Since 1936, The Historic Taos Inn has welcomed local residents from all over Northern New Mexico –– as well as visitors from all over the world. With its fresh summer menu in Doc Martin’s Restaurant, its entire staff looks forward to welcoming new and old friends alike. 61
