Restaurants in New Mexico

Matt Yohalem's intimate neighborhood trattoria is a lively gathering spot for pre-opera-goers and post-gallery-hoppers. Windows overlook busy Marcy Street, a block from the Plaza, and butcher paper covers the tightly spaced tables.

The convivial restaurant grills the best green-chile cheeseburgers around, plus blue-corn tacos and chicken-fried steaks.

Order a burrito bowl and listen as public radio goddess Mary-Charlotte Domandi broadcasts interviews from her table.

Indigenous and global ingredients come together in preparations like buffalo carpaccio with shaved asiago, and grilled elk chop with caramelized acorn squash.

Located near the Railyard Park on Cerrillos Road, Chicago Dog Express sells authentic Vienna beef hot dogs from their food cart situated under the bright blue awning with Vienna-style tables nearby.

Located along the Santa Fe River, Contemporary American restaurant Aqua Santa is an unusually small restaurant in which the kitchen and dining room occupy one open room.

Asian- and S.western-inflected restaurant. Santacafe is in the historic home of 19th-century priest and politician José Manuel Gallegos, New Mexico's first congressional representative.

Named for the in-house (friendly) ghost, Rebecca’s at Cloudcroft’s elegant Lodge Resort serves exquisitely prepared Continental fare, like pistachio-crusted trout or chateaubriand for two.

Adjacent to the National Hispanic Cultural Center, the homey La Fonda del Bosque serves New Mexican especiales like stuffed sopapillas (fried, honey-sweetened pastries) and beef tostadas.

Located amidst the galleries of Canyon Road, Geronimo is housed in the 1756 adobe Borrego House. The white walls and tablecloths and brown leather chairs are accented by an adobe fireplace, moose antlers, and Mission-style icons behind the bar.

Part roadhouse, part specialty grocer, the market is located just north of the center, in the neighborhood of Tesuque. Refuel with an oven-fired pizza after a hike on the Winsor Trail.

In a homey, vintage storefront in downtown Silver City, Diane's Restaurant serves eclectic comfort-food dishes like soy-sesame roast duck and smothered meatloaf with garlic-mashed potatoes.
