I have read chowhound feedback about Santa Fe restaurants for weeks now, and thanks to everyone who has posted. I think I have a good handle on the places to try..... from The Compound to The Shed (with a little Bobcat Burger visit for lunch and Telesque Market, et al for breakfast). My question is this, we are going to be in Santa Fe over Christmas, with our two small boys..... ages 1 and 4. We need a good place for Christmas dinner, and without my kids I would be booking at The Compound right now. But with kids where would you recommend I go, that is open on Christmas, delicious, festive feeling, and would be ok with kids as part of the dinner party?
I have a compulsive need to organize and reserve in advance, so that we don't just drift around on Christmas Day, with "no room at the inn" for a family with kids at every good/festive/fun restaurant. Any feedback will be gratefully received and thoughtfully considered!
