view web site ›'s insider take:

The restaurant and bar at La Fonda hotel (not to be confused with the hotel of the same name in Taos) is a good place to recharge while gallery- and shop-hopping around the Santa Fe Plaza. The hotel itself needs a refurb—it has been at this prime location since the 1600s, and looks it—but La Plazuela serves a decent if somewhat innocuous New Mexican lunch in a bright glassed-in courtyard. Try the burger, smothered in—what else?—green chiles and cheese. At sundown, head to the Bell Tower Bar on the fifth floor, order a margarita and some chips and salsa, and watch the last rays of sunshine alight on the adobe buildings below.

La Plazuela open Mondays through Fridays 7 to 10:45 am, 11:30 am to 2 pm, and 5:30 to 10 pm; Saturdays and Sundays 7 to 10:45 am, 11:45 am to 3 pm, and 5:30 to 10 pm. Bell Tower Bar open May through October, Mondays through Fridays 4 pm to sunset, Saturdays and Sundays 2 pm to sunset.
