Concierge.com's insider take:
Chef Martin Rios has lived in New Mexico most of his life, but he eschews chiles and spices for his flavors and sauce reductions. The result is a menu that you'll find in other quality restaurants in the States, such as a yellow fin tuna dish with a cashew crust and red curry reduction, or the aged beef tenderloin with a coffee and molasses glaze. Seafood is no longer a poor choice in New Mexico, and Rios' lobster dumplings with veal sweetbreads and crunchy haricot verts prove it. The hotel dining room is a single elongated space with hardwood floors, Anaszi brick walls, and Native-American-rug patterned banquettes. Service is mostly invisible and highly conscientious.
Open daily 7 to 10:30 am, 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, and 5:30 to 10 pm.
