One of the biggest events in the culinary calendar in New Mexico, Restaurant Week is due to begin on Sunday, February 22nd and lasts for 8 days – giving you and your family the chance to sample some of the best fare that Santa Fe restaurants have to offer. The good news is that this week means that you do not have to spend as much as you normally would to eat out; you can enjoy multiple course dinners and lunches at fixed prices.
For a meal for two in one of the city’s casual restaurants you will only have to pay $25 and there are $20, $30 and $40 per person options too. Lunches will be available in some of the restaurants, but not all. However, if you think that this week only means that you get to eat a few great meals then think again. You can take the opportunity to learn more about the preparation of your favourite dishes in one of the cooking demonstrations or classes. There are also plenty of other events that are taking place during the week.
So who exactly does Restaurant Week cater to? The truth is that there is something here for everyone. There are several restaurants that serve American cuisine, or you can opt for Italian, French or New Mexican cuisine. If you can’t make up your mind why not consider a restaurant that serves a range of cuisines or one that specializes in ‘fusion’ foods. Spanish cuisine is very popular in the area, of course. This is also a great opportunity to try out new cusines. Have you ever tried Japanese foods? Are you the sort of person who would normally avoid a seafood dish? Here in Santa Fe we have restaurants that specialize in both. How about African homestyle?
But what if you have a specific dietary requirement? There is no need to worry – there are several restaurants that serve organic food, vegetarian or vegan dishes or cater to diets that have to be gluten free. If you have other dietary requirements just call ahead to your restaurant and ask if they can help. Participating restaurants are being added to the list all the time so keep checking out the Restaurant week website to find an eatery that is suitable for you.
