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
