Santa Fe - one casual lunch and one upscale dinner
I'm a DC Chowhound and will be at a conference in NM in April. I'll have exactly one day to explore Santa Fe and a night later in the week. My plan is to have a casual, New Mexico style lunch somewhere convenient during my daytrip, and then to come back at the end of the week for a fanicer dinner. My current thoughts from a quick review of the site are Pasqual's for the lunch and Geronimo for the dinner, but I'd like to get some recent opinions/alternatives. Thanks!
My hubby and I used to go to the Plaza Cafe, right on the Plaza, near the old Woolworths, for enchiladas. Sometimes, a mariachi band would stop in and play. It was a local joint, full of writers and Santa Feans, and the service was fine and the prices couldn't be beat. It's also one of the oldest rests in SF.
For dinner, we used to go to La Casa Sena on E. Palace. Both rests are in the heart of old Santa Fe.
(I have heard that Geronimo is excellent. )
Roadhouse Cafe for Breakfast - get the Migas
Blue Corn Cafe for Lunch
Geronimo's for Dinner - get the elk tenderloin. Quite good.
