Restaurant suggestions Santa Fe and Taos?

Will be travelling to Santa Fe and Taos soon for a few weeks. Anybody have any favorite restaurants in Santa Fe or Taos? Suggestions on great hikes (under 5 miles). Thanks.

Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the trail I was on three years ago but it was northeast of SF and went along a sparking stream through some large ponderosa pines. Be sure to eat traditional New Mexican food (different from TexMex) which includes green-chile stews, blue corn dishes, purple pinto beans, Chile rellenos, blue-corn enchiladas, Menudo, huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, Posole, and Sopapillas.

The trail I enjoyed was the Rio en Medio Trail but unfortunately it is closed because a fire went through there and the ecosystem has to recover.

From my trip report:

We ate well. The restaurant where we ate were The Shed, Raaga, Joseph’s Pub, the Plaza Cafe, and Café Pasqual’s.

The Shed (http://www.sfshed.com/home.html ) is where to go for good New Mexican food. Raaga’s has Indian food (http://raagacuisine.com/ ). Joseph’s Pub (JCP ) is more inventive although it also uses Southwest spicing. The Plaza Café (http://www.thefamousplazacafe.com/ ) looks like an enlarged diner, and the food is home cooking with an emphasis on Southwest style; I had green chili meatloaf, and the desserts were enormous. Café Pascal’s (http://www.pasquals.com/ ) is known for its inventiveness and the chef/owner has a cookbook out, for those interested. Prices with ranged from $58 to $130 (prices for the Shed are at the lower end but not available) for two, tip included. We did not have reservations for The Shed (had to wait 40 minutes) and the Plaza Café (no reservations taken), but did have reservations for the other three which are essential for Café Pascal’s and Joseph’s Pub, while one might get away without reservations during the week at Raaga, at least off season.

For lunch we had our own sandwiches. The Sage Bakehouse (https://plus.google.com/+SageBakehou...ut?gl=us&hl=en ) on Cerrillos just north of Peralta has wonderful bread (the petit pain were perfect for sandwiches) and we purchased our bread there whenever possible—it’s closed on Sunday. A little farther south on Cerrillos there is a big Whole Foods market which has a deli section where cut meat and cheese are available. On Saturday we purchased apples at the farmer’s market by the train depot.

Thank you so much for all your suggestions. I'm getting hungry thinking about it!

Loved Tomasita's, have had both the Chile Relleno and my favorite Carne Adovado with lots of sopapaillas dripping honey and butter for a nice contrast. Also loved Rancho Chimayo but it was a long time ago. Paqual's is popular for breakfast but we were hungry and got there later than we should have, so gave up on the line.
