Fodor's Expert Review Bouche

$$$ Santa Fe French

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

Talented chef-owner Charles Dale (who previously cooked at Rancho Encantado's Terra, Daniel Boulud's Le Cirque, and at his own James Beard–lauded Renaissance restaurant in Aspen) operates this lively, modern take on a traditional French neighborhood bistro. Choose a cozy table by the fireplace and try the consistently stellar renditions of classic escargots, sautéed sweetbreads with local mushrooms, and pomme frites—prices are more than fair compared with similarly upscale eateries around town. On warm days, take a seat on the quieter ramada-covered patio, where it feels like dining at a chic friend's house.
