Had a crepe today from the Le Cart thing across from Kaune's. Delicious!

Someone was telling me about Il Vicino (sp) this morning. Anyone been there? Is it expensive? (I'm looking for another place to eat, since red lobster ticked me off last night)

Do Il Vicino. Excellent. I'm still trying to figure out why people in Santa Fe would eat at places like Red Lobster and Pizza Hut. There is so much good food in this town I don't eat at chain restaurants.

I have been to two of the "Il Vicino's" in Albuquerque. There are other Pizza places I prefer... But they seem to be popular. So you might try them at least once. Il Vicino's has a certain amount of class, like most places I enjoy more with some friends...

People might go to Red Lobster because they don't want Pizza? (I think I have been to Red Lobster maybe four times in the last 12 years or so...).

Chain restaurants? Some are OK, What's the definition? "Il Vicino's" has 10 locations in three states: Denver, CO, Littleton, CO, Colorado, Springs, CO, Santa Fe, NM, Nob Hill, ABQ, NM, Heights, ABQ, NM, Westside, ABQ, NM, IV Brewery Canteen, ABQ, NM, Bradley Fair, Wichita, KS and College Hill, Wichita, KS.

Il Vicino is pretty good and it's not expensive. Another good and inexpensive Italian restaurant is Piccolino's. Kicking it up a notch is Andiamo.
All this talk has me hungry again - and I just finished lunch!

Piccolino's started out good, however the last time I went there it was below average. It's like they changed the recipes. The sauce was like eating Prego.

I had a killer prime rib burrito in the bar area at the Steaksmith a couple of weeks ago. The prime rib was excellent and the red chile rocked! And they have mariachis on Thursday nights.

I spent some time in Santa Fe this past week and plan to get there a few times a year while staying in Taos area. I tried a place called El Ferol I believe on Canyon street and actually liked the enhilda's on the lunch menu. We also went to Tortilla Flats and liked the food even if the place has a upscale fast food chain look. Any other good middle market priced Northern New Mexican food places in the area or in Taos? We tried Orlando's in Taos and really liked it as well. Any guidance for future trips is appreciated
