Game on the menu in Santa Fe

JessicaSophia May 1, 2007 12:53 PM

While visiting Santa Fe, my husband and I want to go to a nice restaurant where he can have some "exotic" meat, whether it be elk, buffalo, venison, etc. We usually go to Geronimo's for this--he loves the elk stake there!--but I'm wondering if there is anywhere else that is known for interesting meats on the menu.

    Ristra usually has elk on the menu, too.

    The restaurant at The Inn of the Anasazi where Martin Rios previously of The Old House is now the Chef has a venison tenderloin on the menu.

    BTW, it's just Geronimo; no 's.

      Oops, I knew that about Geronimo. Thanks for the tips. I used to love the crispy salmon at Ristra.

      Anyone know if there's game on the menu at the Compound?

        I only see rabbit on the menu at The Compound...




        Inn of the Anasazi...


        Looking at the menu for SantaCafe on line I do not see any game.

        I personally think the O'Keeffe Cafe has the best elk dish in town. Get there before 6:30 and you can take advantage of their Early Bird special.
