Just a five-minute walk from the Plaza, Ristra serves French cuisine with Southwestern accents. The Victorian-style adobe house is decorated with earth tones, spare lines, modern lighting, and Navajo rugs; there is also seating on the porch or under the shady arbor on the back patio. A popular appetizer is the steamed mussels in coconut milk and chipotle. Try the duck leg confit served with lavender-flavored lentils and mixed greens with toasted pepitas and dried cranberries. Finish your meal with warm almond butter cake with apples and mascarpone caramel.
