Restaurants

Santa Fe's culinary arts scene is sizzling so when you pack for your trip, make sure to bring your appetiteǃ

Consider yourself a foodie? Santa Fe is a food lover's paradise. Ask the locals to name their favorite Santa Fe restaurants and you'll end up with a lengthy list of worthy choices. Innovative Southwestern fare created by award-winning chefs and hearty New Mexico dishes such as breakfast burritos and green chile stew are reason enough for Santa Fe to have earned a prominent place on the world's culinary map. If you're hungry for creative contemporary cuisine or Asian, French, Italian, Indian or Middle Eastern cuisine, you'll find them all here as well.

New Mexicans love their chile and it isn't the kind with beans that cowboys eatǃ New Mexican chile is spicy, delicious and unlike anything you've ever tasted. When you come to Santa Fe and your server asks if you want "red or green?" this refers to the kind of chile you'd like served over enchiladas, chile rellenos or other staples of New Mexican fare. When in doubt, you can always answer "Christmas" and you'll get to try bothǃ
Discover the legendary and innovative flavors of Santa Fe, including the local chile which isn't an ingredient, but a way of life.

Palace Restaurant and Saloon
Listed first among Top Ten Santa Fe bars in 2013 by the famed Guardian newspaper! Inventive and affordable cuisine with character. Cited as a top stop for great cocktails in Santa Fe publications, visitors and locals alike know The Palace has a New American menu with a range of salads, seafoods, savory dishes and delectable desserts. Steak, lamb, duck and fish dishes are complemented by vegetarian offerings and a lunch and saloon menu that includes burgers, sliders, schnitzel, tacos and sandwiches. Chefs Jen & Evan Doughty fuse international flavors and inspirations with an American comfort vibe to craft healthy, wholesome dishes with a bright, clean palette. In addition to the main dining room and the saloon, The Palace has two outdoor dining areas--vibrant, covered streetside seating in downtown Santa Fe and a hidden gem of a patio, enclosed on four sides. A private dining room is also available. History: Established in 1850 The Palace Saloon is the best surviving representation of the era and atmosphere in which the infamous La Doña Tules held court, and both the powerful and proletariat came to play. There are many stories, truths, half-truths and myths about the powerful and inspirational Doña Maria Gertrudis Barceló, called "La Doña Tules" (tules can refer to a woman's sheer veil, or a thin reed which could have described her willowy frame). What is certain is that she ran a very successful gambling establishment (and, perhaps, offered more intimate diversions upstairs) on or near the site of The Palace during the 1840s and early 1850s.
