I tried Andiamo over Christmas. Great place.

Has a really good rep. and is very popular. Woman who moved here from Austin several years ago owns it. I'm tall and their small tables and chairs were uncomfortable for me. Piccolino is more casual italian fare, and I really like Trattoria al Mano for upscale. And Il Vicino for pizza.

Heading to SF for a few days next week. It's going to be cold so no patio weather is a bummer but we'll be hitting the slopes up mostly. Amy new spots worth mentioning?

What part of town are you staying in? Don't overlook the japanese/korean restaurant at 10000 Waves that you'll pass on the way back from the slopes - izanami.

A couple new places I forgot to mention. A really good persian restaurant - Milad. On Alameda next to the grocery co-op, La Montanita.

Also there's a new steakhouse that's basically ranch to table - Market Steer, not far from the Plaza. From my experience, if you're not going to get steak, don't bother. They also make a great burger but it's only available at the bar next door during happy hour, Secreto.

We rented a house on the NE side of town, not far from the governor's mansion. The spas at 10k is Def on the list.

Yes. Mampuku Ramen opened a couple months ago. They have a variety of very tasty broths and I've enjoyed 'em all, even the very non-traditional brisket with green chile was great. They have a shrimp wrapped in green chile tempura that is killer.

Uncle DT's BBQ, close to Meow Wolf, was a trailer, now he has a brick and mortar that just opened a couple weeks ago. Owner did some apprentice time at Black's. We don't have oak here though so he uses pecan, I think.

Santa Fe Brewing has a recently opened tap room they call the Brakeroom a half block from the Capitol (Roundhouse).

If you need a shitload of wings there's a new Wing Stop on the south side of town.

A greek place called Yamas Greek Rotisserie just opened a few weeks ago and while I haven't been I've heard very good things.

The mixed breakfast burrito at El Chile Toreado is still my favorite food in town. Their quesadillas are also amazing esp if you top it with condiments from their salsa bar. It's a food truck near Whole Foods.

There's a new taqueria dive place on Cerillos called La Piña Loka and their steak and shrimp tacos with green salsa are great  https://www.santafenewmexican.com/life/taste/at-new-la-pi-a-loka-small-space-delivers-big/article_ace1dc36-36ff-11ea-8636-af490dcbffb9.html

Meow Wolf has a ton of concerts on their calendar this year (listed under events on their calendar) and it's a great intimate club if you see a band you like.

 

 

 

 

Great post.


Love that town.  Meow Wolf -- I have been three times now.  I still don't know what the heck I am looking at.

Have you ever tried to actually follow the story line that starts on the dining room table? It’s crazy AF.

A couple of other thoughts of things off the beaten path. Family friendly restaurant that opened this year near the Plaza is Fiesta Oaxaca. Interior Mexican, focus on mole. El Callejon is also a new Mexican place also near the plaza and it's pretty good.  Far from the Plaza, I assume you're already familiar with Rowley Farmhouse Ales. If not their food and beer are excellent. A very wife-friendly pastry shop not far from the Plaza is Chaine - that's the owner's name, her specialty is macarons. Opened a couple months ago. They're pretty awesome. Also alcohol-wise and wife friendly, Honeymoon Brewery brews a very tasty hard kombucha at their location on Alameda. And if you head over to Meow Wolf, there's a new location of Kakawa Chocolate House nearby.

Oh, if any of your family are Game of Thrones fans, George RR Martin just opened Beastly Books 3 doors down from his cinema on Montezuma St.

I tried following it for a few rooms, crazy. Then I just got lost in the art. Meow Wolf is awesome.

Just got back from Meow Wolf. Super awesome. Like, amazing.

I did the puzzle in the constellation room but didn't understand the next clue and my wife and kids were getting impatient. Went to reddit when I got home. Apparently when you crack the code you get a website: https://ihearmusicfromouterspace.com/

Interesting fact about Meow Wolf: George R.R. Martin gave 2.5mm to fund the installation and it took 14 months to build.

Cool, the family will be out in Santa Fe next week and we're planning on going on Wednesday.  Did you order tickets ahead of time or just buy them when you got there?  About how long does it take to see everything?

Buy ahead of time.  You have to reserve your time slot. I'd recommend going right when it opens before it gets crowded.  A minimum of 2 hours if you're just looking. If you follow the story line from beginning to end and try to figure it all out, 3-4 hours.

We bought as a walk-up; skip the dollar extra for the 3D glasses, we found them worthless.

We were there a surprising 3 hours; didn't plan to stay that long and didn't feel that long.

This. Reserve ahead of time. You’ll skip a big line as a result.

This was us, too.  Went on the spur of the moment.  No interest in going, but heard it was pretty cool.  Still spent two or three hours there.

We're booked for 9:00 next Wednesday.  Meow Wolf, a couple days of skiing/snowboarding, and a trip to Bandelier National Monument should keep us plenty busy.  Thanks again for the advice.

Anyone mention Cafe Pasqual off of the Plaza?

La Chosa?

Late to the thread.

Meow Wolf closed until the end of March, so that's out.  Several museums will likely be closed as well.

Got some rain in town and fresh snow in the mountains today and more supposedly on the way tonight.

There's one of those new upscale bowling alleys with restaurant and adult beverages in town if you're desperate for things to do with your family. The Alley, it's called. They also have billiards, shuffleboard, darts and an arcade. All the other restaurants at DeVargas are legit, too.

There have been a lot of visitors in town this week but it was very quiet for a Friday night...just got back from walking the dog - Violet Crown Cinema open but definitely not very busy.

I should clarify - the pizza place is mediocre. The peruvian place inside and the 2 New Mexican restaurants at the front of the mall are all very good. Also that bowling alley isn't cheap but that'll help keep out the riff raff.

Welp...

Ski Santa Fe Closing For The Season

effective March 15

edit Taos too.

Not sure if the cross country place (Enchanted Forest) in Red River is still open or not.

Angel Fire says they're day-to-day about whether to stay open or not.

another edit: The delivery app most restaurants here use is a local one called Fetch. There's a few restaurants on grubhub but nowhere near as many as Fetch.

We were planning to ski tomorrow and the next day. Caught wind this morning about possibly closing, so we rushed up the mountain and skied today.

Probably going to do a bunch of hiking and chilling. Unfortunately, Tent Rocks is closed, too.

That's fairly hard core to catch the last day of an open mountain. It was a nice day, I'll bet the skiing was pretty decent.

I heard Ten Thousand Waves is temporarily closing too. On the plus side, Geronimo is now offering take out.

We're bar hoping tonight. Draft Station, Desert Dogs, and now Santa Fe Brewing Tap Room. Pretty dead all around. I suspect most places will close the doors by the end of the week.

My favorite is Rowley's. It's about a 6 minute drive down Cerillos from where you are now/were. Great food too.

The bar and food at Radish and Rye is great too. Bourbon is their specialty.
