view web site ›'s insider take:

Opened in 1983, Santacafé became famous for infusing American dishes with Southwestern influences in an era when regional cuisine was still a new idea. Happily, it hasn't sold out and remains one of the best fine-dining options in Santa Fe, with consistently great food and service. Call it Santa Fe formal, with four white-tablecloth dining rooms in an 1860s landmark adobe building just off the Plaza. If the weather is right—and it usually is—ask for a table in the huge white-tented courtyard. Start with the crispy calamari with tangy four-chile dipping sauce, or the poblano-and-potato chowder; then move on to Southwestern-accented main courses such as a thick, succulent pork chop in chipotle sauce or the chile relleno stuffed with white cheeses and mushrooms. One bite of the green-chile mashed potatoes, and you'll know you are truly in New Mexico.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 11:30 am to 2 pm and 5:30 to 10 pm; Sundays 5:30 to 10 pm. Sunday brunch served 11:30 to 2 pm May through August.
