Tourists researching Santa Fe eats might be interested in the results of Santa Fe Reporter’s (the free local paper) 2010 Best of Santa Fe Survey. Here is a link to the article.

      It appears that you're not alone! ;-)

      1. re: Erich

        Great article! Makes me want to go back and stay for a while to eat!

        1. re: LikestoEatout

          Well, come on back!

    2. I would be cautious about the recommendation for Flying Star cafe, This is a local NM chain, originating in Albuquerque and, in Albuquerque it has been recently poorly reviewed and seems to be on a downhill slide. It might be fine in it's Santa Fe location, but I would not count on it.

      1. re: rpl

        I quite agree: Santa Fe folks can be sort of amazingly parochial in a lot of ways, and they were quite excited by the opening of the Flying Star at the Railyard. Flying Star is what it is (I had pieces of two delightful pies from one of the ABQ stores today after a friend's funeral), but it's not anywhere that I ever suggest.

        1. re: Erich

          Enjoyed reading the list Eric. Love Andiamo! La Choza is always solid choice. Needing a green chile fix, being away from home for 3 weeks now. ! more week...
