Yup, nuff said and don't even get me started on our mayor. Back to regular programming: food, booze and riding around Northern NM.

Are you sure? The location on Hickox (the original Tomacitas, caddy corner from Aranda's Plumbing) is now the Tune Up Cafe, no? . I'd love to find Dave's Not Here. Lots of good memories.

I've been down to Santa Fe 3 times in the past month doing some repairs. Found a really good Mexican restaurant on Cerillo ave (sp). Not sure of the name but it was next to the brown building with the flat roof.

Isn't the area with the skylight and all newly remodeled or in the last few years. I haven't been going there for 35 years, but think the first time I went there was 1987 or 88. I don't live down there so have probably only been there 10 or 15 times over the years.

Best Mexican somewhere round here

Prolly Los Potrillos for an entire Mexican palate with even authentic nopalitos y
cabrita as well as marisco pero cuando in the mood solamente pa' marisco then many go
to La Playa o Costa Azul (supposedly run by hermanos ).







(P.S. No hay battered potrillos on menu)

Hey I was thinking like Mark Twain white washed picket fences Guess I need to look up rather than sticking my face in my plate

Ever tried their Gazpacho in the early summer?

Do you know where you will be living?
I'm the official carpenter for the hostel on Cerrillos so that's where I've lived since arriving in town last week. I don't know enough about the city to think about where I'd settle.
I'm saving everyone's recommendations and saying thanks for them.
If I have spare time outdoor play comes first and then eating out and museums and such.
So far I've eaten out once in S.F. and it was here: http://www.santafebakingcompanycafe.com/
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere there and invited two strangers to join me at my table and made two new friends.
When I get the Concours sold I'll be shopping for a 350cc something I can use to explore the trails in the area.

One of my very favorite things is the Canyon Road art walk around Christmas. The farolitas are beautiful.

The Reporter is a liberal rag?? You guys should pick up a copy of the Alibi sometime; it makes the Reporter look like a copy of National Review.

As to local food - I'm a big fan of La Choza. It's the Shed's sister restaurant, literally - the brother owns the Shed and the sister owns La Choza. It's usually easier to park and get a table at La Choza, though the service can be a little spotty. But the menu is equally tasty.

I didn't read the thread very carefully so this may be a +1, but if you're staying at the Hostel then you should head south a couple of blocks and try the tacos at El Parasol. They are some of the greasiest, most delicious tacos in all of Northern New Mexico.

If you like inconsistency in your beer and food, there's always 2nd St. Brewery. It's a scene, popular with the locals, but it's hit-or-miss on quality.

JMO, YMMV, etc.

And yes, Dave's really not here, he is gone Tune-Up has some pretty good food but last time I was there, I couldn't handle the hipster clientele. I felt out of place because I didn't have skinny jeans and a fixed gear bicycle

You're spot on with Tune up. I keep referring to it as Dave's....Hipster's with skinny jeans, didn't notice. Perhaps too much into company I was with and chowing down on a great breakfast burrito. Lost Potrillos is good "Mexican food". I just prefer the New Mexican cuisine myself. Each his own. Love El Parasol, though the original in Espanola, El Paragua has some of the tastiest green chile around, not as good as grandmas but damn close.

Did I mention Margarita's? Maria's has a Margarita menu of it's own featuring all the great tequilla's. Kinda pricey but you'll leave happy.

It's all good, like all recommendations posted so far and you can't really go wrong with any of them.

Bet the rooms on either side really appreciate it when you fire up that XRR in that enclosure early in the AM

Horseman's Haven for basic New Mexican food. Good very basic food done well. Way out South on Cerrillos, on the East side of the road next to a gas station. Almost to I25.

Oops, gotta add The Pantry on Cerrillos by 5th street also. Good for big food, breakfast and lunch.

And Pyramid if you want some Middle Eastern.
