Santa Fe New Year ?
New Orleans hound has a ? for those with Santa Fe insight. We're looking for recomendation's
for New Years Eve and New Year's Day. We're going to the concert @ the Lensic
for NYE - which will probably run till 8:30 or 9 PM. We'd love to go someplace in the
Plaza area for a light dinner after that (4 top) that does NOT do an over-the-top streamers &
lots of commotion for New Year's. Someplace we can walk from the theatre. Any ideas?
Also something like the Frontier in Albq. for late breakfast/early lunch dining in Santa Fe that would be open New Years Day? We'd prefer something in the main Plaza area but driving is fine. Full bar would be a plus, too, Thanks!
I do not know whether any of the following will be open on New Year's Day. You will have to call them.
Plaza Cafe Southside (related to the Plaza Cafe on the Plaza). Great chile! (Full bar)
Tomasita's (rarely open on holidays) - Railyard - can walk from downtown.
Tecolote - Classic for brunch. Requires a drive from downtown (no bar)

Across the street from the Lensic Threatre and a block east heading towards the Plaza.
Upscale pub food, full bar and excellent wine list (place is one owned by Gerald Peters). Menu usually has things like short ribs and excellent burgers.
The Plaza Cafe (on the Plaza) is Santa Fe's equivalent of ABQ's Frontier though imo better. Ordinarily it is open seven days; I'd think New Year's Day will be the same. Santa Fe IS crowded now so a wait for a table could be possible.
Hello, the Plaza Cafe on the Plaza is closed until April, I believe. It may have reopened already, but I don't think so. I don't think most people would consider The Plaza Cafe the equivalent of Albuqerque's Frontier Restaurant. Totally different in terms of atmosphere and service and food.
Here is the website for the Plaza Cafe on the Santa Fe's plaza: http://www.thefamousplazacafe.com/
For great food, casual surroundings and it should be just what you want ,try Il Vicino for pizza, micro brew beer, salads, and some nice meals. It is a short walk from Lensic. It is our favorite micro brew and pizza.
321 West San Francisco Street
If you want a bit more upscale, last year we had dinner at Andiamo! and it was excellent. No streamers or over the top fuss. Prices were quite good too.
After dinner we went to Hotel Santa Fe for drink and to listen to the flute music of Ronald Roybal. They were serving dinner and it looked very nice.
Here's some more ideas, though a bit more fussy:
