Set inside the city's historic former city hall, this casual tavern serves some of the best upscale pub grub in town, including roasted green chile queso blanco, mammoth burgers with a range of interesting toppings, and hand-cut rib-eye steaks. An upstairs tap room carries a fine selection of craft beers, with an emphasis on New Mexico brewers.
