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. A cherry tree shades the patio and adobe walls, while the kiva oven, cream-colored walls, and hardwood floors lend warmth to the 12-table dining area. Chef-owner Brian Knox, a Slow Food advocate, changes the menu frequently in order to use seasonal produce and local meats. A signature starter is the square pizzetta with Taleggio cheese and Serrano ham, while the slow-braised lamb with sautéed greens is a popular entree.
