Then look no further than participating in Santa Fe’s Restaurant Week going on in Santa Fe through March 13. Fifty four restaurants are participating, including La Fonda’s own La Plazuela. Follow this link for the menu but since a picture is worth a thousand words, I’ve given you six thousand words to consider.
I dined with La Fonda’s good friend and supporter, Brooke Dulaney. The entire menu looked fantastic but I chose the spinach salad, the carne asada and enchilada and the Mexican chocolate streusel cake.All were delicious! I know I am biased but I think our enchiladas are the best in town. My wine choice was a great tasting glass of bubbly made locally by New Mexico’s own Gruet winery. Brooke had the Caesar salad, the pork shank and the cheesecake. She loved every bite of each dish.
Our server was Stormi, who consistently gets rave reviews by our guests. I can’t tell you how many emails I get telling me she is one of the best waitresses of all time. You may remember that I profiled her in my blog on January 18th. During dinner she gave me an update on her progress in La Fonda’s Biggest Loser contest. Twenty Pounds! Very impressive!
Albuquerque is also celebrating its own Restaurant Week March 13-20. So, call or get on Open Table and make your reservation to check out Santa Fe’s restaurant week. It is a great opportunity to sample various courses at extremely reasonable prices.
