Santa Fe trip report
Just back from a long weekend in Santa Fe. We had four dinners: the first night at the restaurant of our hotel, the Inn of the Anasazi; Casa Sena; Geronimo; and the on-site buffet dinner at the Opera. The best food was at Geronimo. The best setting was the lovely outdoor courtyard of Casa Sena.
We had a nice lunch on our first afternoon at the upstairs (rooftop) cantina of Coyote Cafe. It was nicely shaded and casual, with good food and friendly service. The chips brought with the guac and salsa were outstanding. Another good lunch was at the Anasazi hotel restaurant, where two of us raved over buffalo burgers. When it's hot outside, the spacious and cool atmosphere of the indoor part of this restaurant is a good choice. Tried to get into the Shed but the wait was one hour!
Two mornings, we had amazing breakfasts at Pasquals. We ate around 8:30am and did not have much of a wait. Lots to choose from, nice friendly service and atmosphere. Homemade bread for toast was great. Breakfast was so filling that one of the days we couldn't eat lunch! We covered a variety of choices (four people, two visits) and it was all delicious.
The other two mornings we ate at the hotel (Anasazi) restaurant so that we could sit outside and enjoy the perfect early morning weather before the heat kicked in. They make a fabulous granola and we also liked the breakfast burrito and the blue corn pancakes.
I wish we had time to get to a few other places. We'll just have to go back again sometime...
Would you do the Opera buffet again? We have two performances and I'm debating among huge lunch/no dinner, early dinner, picnic and buffet. Would appreciate any advice in this regard. Thanks. Also, I don't see much about Pink Adobe on this Board. We will be staying at the Inn of the Five Graces and I'd appreciate any intelligence about that place.
