BITES - MORE OF CHASING FAVORITES...


I've been busy eating my way through more of Santa Fe's delicious restaurant offerings. Here's a few of my latest favorites...

L A   C H O Z A




For more than forty years this vibrant, family-owned eatery  (they also own The Shed) has been making delicious food memories.


And those memories begin with a warm greeting as you step through the door...


Then you are embraced by color and texture and art everywhere...








Great Margaritas!



The wait staff  and the service is friendly. It's great people
 watching because the food and atmosphere is a draw for locals.
 It's the perfectplace to bring out-of-town-guests. 


Wonderful!

This is one of my favorite watering holes.  And because it is a perennial favorite with many Santa Feans, there can be a wait...but it's well worth it...


Before you take a seat at your table, a look-see at the delights that await are a must. Everything is made in-house daily and everything is amazing! 



The brioche is memorable. Every Spring and Summer friends and I gather for picnics around Santa Fe - The Rose Garden...Shidoni Sculpture Garden - and Clafoutis' brioche and quiche are a permanent part of the al fresco menu.

Another iconic Santa Fe restaurant that is a must do if you're downtown  and  hungry - it's right off the Plaza. Love the interiors and the food is authentic Northern New Mexico.

A great out-of-town jaunt -  11 miles from the Plaza - for some fun food. Housed in the former Fina Gas Station, this eatery is a popular with locals and a great brunch destination. Pastries are a must!








Corn cakes with chipotle marinated shrimp...a beauty.


The Cloud Cakes - lived up to their name- light and airy...

Bar & Bistro 



Stopped by Jinja the other night to have one of their amazing Mango Margaritas and
ordered the BONSAI SHRIMP from their appetizer menu. It was a WOW choice - citrus tempura battered shrimp (to die for) with won ton strips, bean threads and fresh coconut with a tantalizing cilantro mint sauce. The picture says it all....

  1. Great images! do you use a digitizing service? I just had all of my parent's wedding photos transferred to a digital format with ScanDigital. They do all of their scanning in house in the united states. Great service.
