Santa Fe

Don't tell the neighborhood burglars but we're up in Santa Fe right now. Last night we had dinner at Rio Chama on the recommendation of an eGullet friend who said we had to get the Silver Coin and nachos (an odd eG recommendation). We didn't realize that we were supposed to dine in the bar and so we sat in the dining room. The Silver Coins were nice but we couldn't get the nachos, and so we ended up with some "okay" but overpriced food. Not recommended. However, if you're in the area, check out the bar and get the bar food which comes highly recommended.

This morning we had breakfast at the Café Paris which we both agreed was very nice. I had the omelet Lyonaisse and an almond croissant. It is the first properly baked croissant that I've had in years.

Lunch was at Café Pasqual. I had always assumed it was just a tourist trap, but the same eG friend told us we had to go, and sure enough it was very good. I had the molé enchiladas with a beer, and Tyler had the green enchiladas, stacked, no egg.

Then we were off for a chocolate excursion. More on that later...
