'O 'Eating House - O MY!


Just a hop skip & a jump up the road from Santa Fe, along 84/285 in Pojoaque, is this gem of an Italian restaurant. It's changed hands a bit in the last
 few years, but is now owned by Executive Chef Steven Lemon,
who moved on from Pranzo in Santa Fe.

I ate there last week with a friend and it was sensational. Everything was beautifully plated, beautifully prepared and delicious. I could describe the nuances of each dish, but instead I'll show you what we devoured.


The house-made focaccia was lovely...with lemon & rosemary.


How do I describe biting into one of these plump, ricotta and sweet corn
stuffed squash blossoms? Perfect. Then there was the
 cherry & mustard oil compote on the side that was brilliant.


Ah the buratta. Stuffed house-made mozzarella - luscious and spreadable on a simple buttered & grilled disk of bread. I wanted another plate full. It was that good.

Next came the...


Arugula watermelon Salad.


Beet Risotto.


Pan-seared rib eye.


Pan-seared rainbow trout w/ coucous


And, for dessert? Parmesan truffle French fries. 
Well, it was as good as any dessert.




Wonderful ambiance too.
Simple, Fresh & Local.
 Open for lunch & dinner.
