Winter’s most delicious event has returned for its seventh year. That’s right – New Mexico Restaurant Week is back.
Festivities will kick off this Sunday in Santa Fe. From Feb. 21 to 28, participating restaurants will offer multiple-course dinners starting at just $25 for two for casual dining. Fine-dining options begin at $20 to $30. With multiple hotels offering Restaurant Week offers, it’s your chance to take a small gourmet vacation and enjoy Santa Fe’s world-class food scene and luxury real estate.
It’s also a great time to expand your culinary horizons. From learning new skills, to going behind the scenes at the best local restaurants, to talking with talented chefs and sommeliers, there are near limitless opportunities for fun during Restaurant Week.
Here is a small appetizer of the fantastic restaurants taking part:
Deliberately designed to look and feel like like your favorite Parisian hangout, Bouche Bistro boasts a wood-burning fireplace, open kitchen and one of the city’s nicest patios. That’s to say nothing of the magnificent cuisine created by award-winning chef Charles Dale, a French native who brought his aptitude for simple, classical fare to Santa Fe with undeniable style.
Anyone who has ever enjoyed a European wine bar will recognize the intoxicating atmosphere of La Boca. Featuring an encyclopedic selection of carefully selected South American and Mediterranean wines, La Boca is a Spanish cuisine delight. With a gracious and knowledge staff on hand to pair each delicious meal (try the tapas!) with the perfect wine, it’s impossible to go wrong.
Since 1991, Sazon’s Chef Fernando Olea has been captivating diners with his one-of-a-kind interpretations of both traditional and contemporary Mexican dishes. Olea’s small, fresh and locally sourced menu has defined outstanding Santa Fe dining for more than two decades now. He hasn’t stopped getting better, either. Sazon won Open Table’s Diner’s Choice Award in 2015.
