Tourist trip to Santa Fe? Perhaps this will help!

Erich | Oct 25, 2005 04:54 PM

The local newsweekly has just come out with this year's list of its 40 favorite restaurants. I would recommend heading over the link to the Reporter's site to get the well-written skinny (the link is not updated from the 2004 list as I post this, but I suspect it will be soon) on any given restaurant, but here is the list with the contact info (and cuisine type) for the restaurants.

I'm not saying that I'd wholeheartedly recomend every restaurant on this list, or that there aren't other places that I would also recommend. However, I would say that a tourist coming to Santa Fe would do pretty well eating off this list.

I hope this post is of some assistance to visitors as the ski season rolls our way . . . cheers, erich
