Best bar food in Santa Fe.
I'm looking for suggestions as to the best places in Santa Fe to eat at the bar, either as a single, or couple. It doesn't have to be the best food in town, but needs to be a fun scene, and a great place to talk with the bartender and the person on the next stool. Good wine by the glass, local brews and flat screen TVs are a plus, but not necessary. I've liked Pranzo and El Meson over the years. Wonder if they're still good.
Both Pranzo and El Meson are fine, more for scene than chow.
Bars with a little more chow centricity: Ristra (Southwest/French), La Boca (Spanish, significantly better than El Meson), Shibumi (ridiculously good Japanese small plates), Secreto (craft cocktails and small plates).
Also consider the communal table at Tuneup Cafe.
Try the bars at either Del Charro or the Shed. Both are enjoyable and have good libation choices.
The Cowgirl is a hoot, but may have limited wine selections.
