Much of the restaurant’s organic produce is grown on owner Erin Wade’s 10-acre Nambe farm, Los Portales, harvested within hours of arriving at Vinaigrette’s kitchen.  Walking distance from our Casita Lomita, Corazon, Desero, Amor, Bonita, & Espiritu.

India Palace  227 Don Gaspar (within the city parking lot) 505-986-58598
This tiny spot exists for the days when you want spicy food but you don’t want Mexican. Tucked behind the city parking lot on Water Street, the luncheon buffet is always popular.



French

Bouche Bistro  451 West Alameda 505-982-6297
Charles Dale, formerly of Terra, has resurfaced with his own sweet bistro in the space that used to house Aqua Santa. Soupe a
l'oignon, salade mesclun, we think the word "bistro" tells you what you need to know.

315 Restaurant and Wine Bar  315 Old Santa Fe Trail 505-986-9190

Clafoutis 402 North Guadalupe 505-988-1809
A brunch or lunch delight, with fresh and delicious country salads, excellent sandwiches and a vast selection of pastries, which amply make up for the parking challenge. Breakfast and lunch only.



Italian/Mediterranean

Rooftop Pizzeria 60 E San Francisco St # 301 505-984-0008 You just might score a rooftop table overlooking a slice of Santa Fe, but either way, the slice you’re eating will be delicious! Artisanal pizza choices, salads and microbrew selections make this a pleasant option for casual dining downtown.  Just across the street from La Plaza (at the Arcade).  One of my favorite places to enjoy the sunset.



Osteria d’Assisi  58 South Federal Place 505-986-5858
One of Santa Fe’s most authentic Italian kitchens and a fine wine list draw regulars to this casually elegant spot, where freshly made pasta and stone-baked pizzas top the list of favorites.

Andiamo  322 Garfield Street (505) 995-9595 

Continuously nurtured a strong connection between the Santa Fe Farmers Market and our kitchen — melding indigenous foods whenever possible, with key Italian imports. We crave these earthy, effortless flavors long after the meal has ended.

Eating sustains more than the body. Dining at Andiamo inspires conversation and evokes memories. That’s why we see Andiamo as a collective experience for people who love food. Our staff is genuinely happy to work with our customers. At the end of the day, we want our guests to feel better for having eaten here.

New Mexican

Tune Up Cafe Central American cuisine meets New Mexican.  You will find that the fusion here brings plenty of options for most in a cozy setting.  115 Hickox Street 505-983-7060

The Pink Adobe  406 Old Santa Fe Trail 505-983-7712  After a brief interlude, “The Pink” is back, thanks to original owners, the Hoback Family!

The Shed  113 1⁄2 East Palace 505-982-9030
The quintessential Santa Fe eatery occupies a centuries-old building and serves up classic chile-infused New Mexican fare. Wash it down with a pitcher of sangria, and you’ll think you’re back in the days when New Mexico was the northern capital of New Spain.  Walking distance from Casa Oasis, Casita Patron I, Casita Patron II, Casita Montoya, Casita Ortega and Casita Romero.


 

Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen  555 West Cordova Road 505-983-7929
Known mainly for their unbelievably extensive margarita menu, northern New Mexico dishes help make this casual eatery a local favorite. It can be noisy, but it’s always fun.  Walking distance from Casita Lomita.



La Choza  905 Alarid Street 505-982-0909
Sister property to the Shed, the out of the way location should not deter.  Fresh, flavorful New Mexican fare makes this a repeat destination for local diners who want to be seated quick and enjoy their burritos.


Bumblebee’s Baja Grill 301 Jefferson St 505-820-2862  Quick.  Informal.  Delicious.  Just a few blocks away from La Plaza.  If you’re tired of eating it New Mexican-style, try it Mexican-style, with soft corn tortillas making for a great fish taco and some mighty big burritos. With many options for the health conscious (gluten free, paleo, vegan options) or not, Bumblebee Bob’s “bee- stro” is as popular with locals as it is with visitors.


Atrisco  93 Paseo de Peralta 505-983-7401 Don’t let the mall location faze you, these folks know their chile! Another branch of the Tomasita’s/Tia Sophia’s/Diego’s familia is back in business at the DeVargas Mall, serving up fresh and tasty New Mexico specialties, with lighter-size platos available. And their long- standing connection to the Farmers’ Market makes this a real farm-to-table meal.

Spanish

La Boca  72 West Marcy Street 505-982-3433  The newest entry in the tapas derby, this one adds in touches of the Middle East to spice up its creative, ever-changing menu.

El Mesón Santa Fe Restaurant & Tapas Bar  213 Washington Avenue 505-983-6756
Another exciting tapas restaurant, this congenial spot would be as at home in Madrid as it is in downtown Santa Fe. Wash down the tapas and paella with a Spanish wine or an oloroso sherry, or drop by their Chispa bar for live music and a
nitecap.

El Farol  808 Canyon Road 505-983-9912
Santa Fe’s oldest bar and restaurant, this historic spot on Canyon Road offers the some of the best people-watching in town, a happening bar with live music and a sophisticated menu of tapas and other Spanish specialties.

Coyote Cafe  131 West Water Street 505-983-1615
This is the place that first put upscale Southwestern cuisine on the map, and it’s still a winner! For a lighter meal in a lively atmosphere, try the open-air, rooftop Coyote Cantina next door, but note that the Cantina does not take reservations.



The Compound  653 Canyon Road 505-982-4353

Café Pasqual is considered a Santa Fe Institution. The menu of organic and sustainably grown dishes spiced with Asian and Latin American flavors is one of the most imaginative in town.

The Palace Restaurant & Saloon  142 West Palace Avenue 505-428-0690
Hardly new to Santa Fe, but we're glad the Palace is back! With a beautiful face-lift, this downtown institution has returned to the fold. Though not easy for vegetarians or vegans, the kitchen turns out ample portions of delicious classics, with live music on the weekends.
