Just got back from a 10-day visit to Taos and my wife and I had some great meals. the following tabs were based on two people with two courses and a modest bottle of wine before tip:
GRAHAM'S GRILL-Our favorite. Ate there 3 times. Huge menu. Loved everything. Need reservations tho casual. Ask for table 401 and watch Chef/Owner Lesley do her thing. $85
LOVE APPLE-Very quaint. Menu small but with fresh local produce. No credit cards. My wife's favorite. $85
EL MEZE-Theme is Spanish cuisine with emphasis on Moorish influence as melded with early Mexican culture. Don't know about the theory but the practice is great. Good selection of Spanish wines. $110
STAKEOUT-8 miles south of Taos. Worth the drive. Fabulous setting watching the sunset. Fabulous menu. Caesar was the best we had. Loved the veal piccata. Italian flair. $130
LAMBERT'S-Apparently an old favorite. Very stylish. Excellent menu, excellent service. Very romantic atmosphere. $140
JOSEPH'S TABLE-We had been there a couple of years ago. Loved it then. Seems a bit tired now but we still had a nice meal. Beautiful setting. $110
TEQUILA-Modestly price Mexican with some excellent shellfish dishes. More than just the usual taco/tostada/etc. $50
BENT STREET CAFE-Just bkfst and lunch. Huge, tasty sandwiches and excellent salads. outdoor seating. $40
ADOBE BAR-Annex to Doc Martin's. Just had a snack and a couple of glasses of wine. Good variety of snacks. The place to be seen in Taos, I guess. $40
MICHAEL'S KITCHEN-Another Taos standby. Huge comfort-food breakfasts. Every college town has one of these. $35 (no wine)
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT-APPLETREE INN has closed. We really liked that place. Perhaps it wil reopen by and by.
