British Honeymoon Couple, 8-9 May 2013, Sante Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico

Depends on what kind of food you want to try. You can go with the local Northern New Mexican. We love Mary and Tito's in ABQ- but they close early- try lunch.

We also like Zacatecas, a taco and tequilla place in ABQ or Torino's at home for Italian.

In Santa Fe- there are a few new places or soon to open ones that seem promising- check back closer to your travel date.

If you are a tapas fan, try Taberna La Boca- right now they have a half-priced happy hour between 5 and 7. They may still have it in May.

One night is not enough in Santa Fe.

Return to Santa Fe

There are some great restaurants in town these days. If you like world cuisine- try Jambo Cafe- reasonably priced African food- owner is from Kenya. Restaurant Martin for more high end- but less pricy than Geronimo- also Galisteo Bistro. La Boca and their new Taberna La Boca for tapas- happy hour brings half-priced tapas. Dona Clara in Santa Fe Village for authentic Mexican lunch or early dinner. If you come in February- Chef Charles Dale is opening a French bistro on Alameda St. No creole of high-end French. Sugars is still there but not always open- check with them for days and hours. Also some interesting food trucks and carts have opened around the downtown area in the last few years. Lots of new places in the last 5 year.s Bon apetit!

Santa Fe Eatinerary

I would do the solo dinner at Pasqual's community table. The food is great and you'll meet people.
Breakfast, Tia Sophias, Tecolote or the Pantry all have great NM breakfasts.
Lunch: tapas at La Boca or the Shibumi, a Japanese Ramanya (noodle house)
3 dinners: Epazote, 315 Restaurant and Wine Bar, Restaurant Martin or Luminaria at the Inn and Spa at Loretto.
If you want something more casual and inexpensive for dinner: New Mexican at The Shed or La Choza and the African/Caribbean Jambo Cafe or Rooftop Pizza.
Drinks, I agree with Coyote Cafe Cantina and definitely have an appetizer with the drinks. Agave the bar at the Eldorado Hotel is a great place for a drink

Christmas Dinner, Santa Fe

I think you mean Dinner for Two. I am generally not a buffet fan, but on holidays, I like to get as close to a family-style dinner as possible. Bishop's Lodge has a bountiful buffet. The two resorts are very different in ambiance and that might be a big factor for you. Haven't had the Tamaya buffet, but that's quite a ride and that's something to consider. Most of the nicer restaurants in Santa Fe go beyond what I consider mid-range, but everyone's point of pain is different.
