Fodor's Expert Review Trinity Hotel

$$ Outside Carlsbad Caverns National Park Historical Fodor's Choice
The region's top pick for a romantic, elegant meal, this handsome dining room with vaulted ceilings, tall windows, and a long old-fashioned bar is set inside the beautifully restored 1892 Trinity Hotel. The kitchen turns out hearty and flavorful Italian fare, from traditional pastas to halibut with lemon-caper sauce, and a signature dish,

chicken bolloco—essentially fettuccine Alfredo with fresh green chilies added. Unwind at the bar, which features excellent local wines, including some from the owner's own vineyards in Deming. Free tastings are offered daily from 4 to 7. There's an excellent Sunday brunch.
