Dress codes in any Santa Fe restaurants?

I'll be in Santa Fe the toward the end of the week. Having been there, actually lived there, many years ago I don't remember any dress codes in any of the "upscale" restaurants.
We're planning on making this a casual jeans and shorts trip but don't want to be turned away from the door for lack of proper attire.
I was thinking dress jeans and nice shirts and shoes would be fine, but my traveling companion wanted to know for sure so we can plan accordingly.

    Jeans are going to be very hot to wear with the temps we have been experiencing. I don't think shorts are in order for the nicer places, but maybe light weight slacks. Not sure if you are a male or female....so that hampers suggestions. :o)

      The whole state is still really informal, including Santa Fe. It would probably be a little disrespectful to show up at the Compound in acid wash cutoffs and a ratty tank top, but you'll be completely, totally fine in dress jeans and a nice shirt.

        Thank you so much finlero. I had a feeling it hasn't changed all that much but wanted to be sure.
