There are two types of spicy food: dishes that you eat on a dare, and dishes that make you savor every morsel and wish for more. Richardson's has the second option mastered, and lures back locals with heat-filled dishes that test the limits of your palate—but not in a threatening way. This is fine New Mexican cuisine, which means everything (including heat and quality) is ratcheted up about three notches. The beef tenderloin chile relleno is the star of the menu, which
incorporates New Mexican hatch chiles in just about every dish. If you're feeling adventurous, order a platter or a combination. You won't be disappointed.
