Christmas Feasting in Santa Fe

Repeat guests of The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn know that Santa Fe abounds with fabulous restaurants, though many are closed on Christmas Day.  Nonetheless, there are some great options, and many of the city's larger hotels are open and serving bountiful holiday feasts.  You will want to make your reservations as soon as possible, as seating is limited.

My first choice for either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Dinner would be Restaurant Martin.  Theirs is an innovative and deliciously-prepared and presented menu, with a wide array of seafood, poultry, meats and vegetarian options in an simple but elegant setting.  Christmas Eve dinner begins at 5:30pm, and Christmas Day service begins at 1pm.

I would also recommend The Compound Restaurant for either Christmas Eve Dinner (located on Canyon Road, so very well-situated for those wanting to participate in the Farolito Walk) or Christmas Day.  Their Christmas Eve service begins at 4pm, with a three course prix-fixe dinner for $125.  Christmas Dinner is served from 5pm on, with an a la carte menu featuring Compound favorites along with turkey dinner and all the trimmings.

Another great choice would be Fuego at La Posada, located just one block from the inn.  Christmas Eve dinner will be available from 5:30-9pm, with the same menu available on Christmas Day from 3pm-8pm for $75/person.
