I recently received an endorsement and some more favorites to my post on Santa Fe Restaurants: A Frequent Visitor’s Picks that I wanted to raise to post status with links and logistics. Thanks to Marc Orchant for providing this. Marc is a New Mexico resident, and writer of many blogs, including, The Office Weblog as part of the Weblog, Inc. network. He is currently the Storyteller at VanDyke Software. This role includes directing the firm’s marketing communications and public relations through its web site, discussion forums, and other channels. Marc’s blogging experiences are also a case in our book, Business Blogs: A Practical Guide.
In addition to approving the prior selections, Marc provided the following additions with his comments in parentheses.
El Farol (excellent tapas, sangria, and music). The site looks great. It says that El Farol “combines classic tastes of Spain, Santa Fe and Mexico with a unique blend of art, dance, flavor and aroma.” This includes flamenco dinner shows. They even have Chicago blues on occasion. It is located at 808 Canyon Road Santa Fe, (505)983-9912
315 Bistro (French/nouveau with a great wine list, wonderful prix fixe dinners and attentive, personal service). Here is the Gourment Magazine review. It is located at 315 Old Santa Fe Trail. 505.986.9190
The Cowgirl Hall of Fame (great bar-b-q and burgers and lots of colorful characters). There is frequently live music. I liked the Cabeza de Ajo starter for $5.25 a head of roasted garlic, planted in the middle of a plate of melted jack cheese with tomatillo salsa and toasted baguette. It is located at 319 S. Guadalupe St., Santa Fe (505)982-2565
