Santa Fe dining questions

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Sante Fe for four nights the first weekend in May, arriving early afternoon on Friday and leaving early Tuesday morning. I've poured over reports and posts here about Santa Fe.
We are staying at La Fonda, based on some suggestions here. And yes, we are renting a car for the stay.

So our first night (after a long connecting flight leaving very early in the morning) we think we aren't going to want to do a big formal meal, so we're thinking of The Shed early -- like 6:30 followed by prickly pear margaritas and music at Santa Fe Inn. (Ronald Roybal).

On Saturday night, we're planning on The Compound.

On Sunday night, looking at The Pink Adobe (that steak Dunigan is calling to me).

On Monday night, we have a reservation at Geronimo.

We're thinking of doing the day to Taos on Sunday. Any suggestion for lunch there?

Breakfast is included at La Fonda, and we have a list of casual places for lunch -- Bumble Bees, Mariscos Cost Azul, Vinaigrette, La Choza -- depending on where we happen to be.

Any comments on the dinner places? Suggestions for better choices than those listed? We do want to focus more on "local" flavors when possible, with a combination of casual and formal. Andiamo sounds wonderful for example, but we have millions of opportunity for great Italian at home. What about Coyote Cafe (the dining room) or Pasquale instead of Pink Adobe? Are The Compound and Geronimo too much the same type of experience?
