Easter Dinner in Santa Fe

Spring has sprung in Santa Fe, with blossoms blooming and birds swinging sweetly in the gardens of The Madeleine Bed and Breakfast Inn.  This is one of the most glorious times of year to be in Santa Fe.  Guests have begun asking about Easter Dinner options, and there are several restaurants doing special Easter Brunch Menus.

Inn of the Anazsazi, just a few blocks from the inn, is offering an Easter Brunch Menu from 11am-2:30pm at $40 person.  The menu looks pretty interesting. with lots of southwestern-oriented dishes, offering a change from the traditional lamb, potatoes and asparagus.  Consider their Signature Homemade Tortilla Soup, Spanish Benedict (Eggs Benedict with Roioja Chorizo Chipotle Hollandaise), or Huevos Rancheros.  Reservations may be made by calling 505.988.3236.

Another nearby Easter meal is at Fuego, just one block from the inn.  Theirs is a more traditional menu, with appetizers such as Spring Pea Soup, Melon Coupe or Butter Lettuce Salad.  Entrees include Roasted Chicken, Eggs Benedict, Crab Cakes and Eggs, Seared Salmon or Oven Roasted Prime Rib.  In addition to the Baker's Pasty Stand (yum yum!) is a dessert of Strawberries with Devonshire Cream.  This meal will be served from 11am-3pm at a cost of $40/person.  Please call 505.984.9670 for reservations.

Also serving on Easter is one of my favorite Santa Fe Restaurants:  SantaCafe.   Though they have not posted a special Easter menu, the brunch at SantaCafe is fantastic!  I always get their Crispy Calamari with Lime Dipping Sauce to start, and highly recommend that.  Choose from entrees such as Mascarpone Stuffed French Toast, Grilled Ruby Red Trout with Sweet Corn Risotto, Baby Spinach Salad with Seared Tuna or Quiche with Gruyere Cheese.  For dessert is a killer Warm Upside Down Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream, Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brulee and so much more!  In addition, they have a lovely garden patio which is one of the nicest outdoor eating spaces in Santa Fe.  To book your brunch at SantaCafe, please call 505.984.1788.
