My objection to the place is that it seems to me that any restaurant that enjoys the reputation as one of the "Santa Fe Traditions since 1944", and attracts so many tourists who have heard about it, should proudly offer the best of New Mexican cuisine on the menu along with the other dishes.

Just my own personal opinion.

P.S. I make my beignets at home. I bet I could compete with Cafe Du Monde.
Oh...yum!!! I have never tried it myself.

Don't know what to tell you about the other....

I have cabrito baking in the oven....got it started too late, and it won't be ready for another 3 hours..!!

I know I have mentioned Diego's Cafe (in DeVargas Mall) before; it is near the top of my favorites list. We had lunch there today. They have the most awesome food (every time we go) and such friendly service. Great green chile!

Two thumps up!!

I was just going to post on that. The Pink is one of the attractions that drew me to Santa Fe, after I checked out and read a library book on recipes by the Pink's owner/founder.

I loved the Pink! My party sat right by the fireplace and it was wonderful as the afternoon turned to showers while we ate dinner. The menu was not traditionally New Mexican as much as other cafes more suited to the New Mexican cuisine title, but the staff was courteous, the food was great as was too the atmosphere.

If indeed I do move to SF the "Pink" will be one of the first restaurants in which I will celebrate my arrival.

I guess the only thing I can actually say I liked about the Pink was the fireplace, which was very cool.

Everything else - not a good experience.

And I am a person who is NOT hard to please ... I rarely ever complain about any restaurant. I LOVE almost every restaurant I go to, even though others have complaints.

You won't be seeing me when you dine there, Lovehound.

Good! I see that Santa Fe is so small compared to what I'm used to (L.A.) that I'll probably need a hang out to occasionally get a bit of privacy from my online friends.

Like I said, a can of worms. lol
You want green or red sauce with those worms? We had a great little NM restaurant in Dallas, well actually Plano (suburb). It was owned by a famiy from ALB. I went to it a couple of times, it was so good. Then we I actually moved closer to it, it was gone, replace by a typical Tex mex restaurant. I need to order a case of the red sauce from the Shed in Sante Fe. The "Old El Paso" stuff is about it.

I'm with Towanda. I've always loved Maria's and could start a riot by saying I like it better than much in ABQ. Uh, oh.

And for a splurge, the Inn of the Anasazi restaurant where Martin Rios rocks! Ranks with the best anywhere.
