Santa Fe large group lunch & dinner suggestions?
My husband and I are headed to Santa Fe for Martin Luther King Jr. weekend (Jan. 14-17), and while we have a wedding reception dinner to go to on Sunday, we'll be on our own for Saturday. It'll be a few couples and then a couple other friends (we're all mid-20's, it'll be a mini college reunion), probably about 10 people. I'm looking for fun, Southwest/Mexican/authentic places that would be good for a large group. If possible, a price range from moderate ($20-30/person for dinner) to more upscale ($40+/person for dinner) and places with good beer/wine selections.
Santa Fe Brewing Co. has live music and cold drinks. They serve SW bar food such as salads, buritos, burgers and sandwiches. You can dine outside and dance also. The Ore House is very reasonable but more upscale than SFB. But it's still casual and there's dining on the second floor porch overlooking the Plaza. There's music on weekends.
