Taos recomendations wanted

Sam Spade Sep 12, 2010 07:17 PM

Will be spending three nights (including a Sunday) in Taos in mid October and was looking for help from fellow hounds for lunch/dinner spots not to be missed. Haven't been there in 12+ years so past experience is not much help.

      Neat bar/restaurant in an alley off the plaza. Funky fun place with outdoor seating and great food.
      I had a bowl of texas red, chili made with brisket. Scrumptious. Seriously a quintessential Taos venue.

            I don't know if this is too late for you, but there was this place in Rancho, pretty much next to that fabulous pink adobe church. It was a family-run place and it was charming. I still swoon thinking about their tamales.

            And I second the Michael's suggestion. Make sure you have something, anything, with their honey butter.

              Orlando's for New Mex. Best I had in New Mexico over a two week trip.
