It has been too long since I've had such an amazing meal - since May 21st, to be exact, but more on that meal later. :)
Restaurant Martin, here in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is my absolute new favorite place to go here in town. Often, I do not know where to go for not only good food, but good service to boot, and R.M. covers both to perfection. Owned by Senor Martin Rios and his lovely wife, Jennifer, this is a show stopping, mouth watering place for a little piece of heaven.
I've gone now, 3 times - twice for dinner and once for lunch - from your chilled avocado/cucumber soup with lobster, risotto with bay scallops/bacon/mushroom/peas, Alaskan halibut tacos, chicken sandwiches, succulent pork loin, juicy beef tenderloin, Colorado rack of lamb, and divine desserts - creme brulee with major specks of vanilla bean, lemon mousse or opera cake, you can't go wrong with anything you order. My big test is the quality of the drip coffee - it is dark roasted but not burnt tasting like a Starbucks cuppa joe. The price - just right - not too expensive and quite frankly, is priced perfectly for what you are getting.
GO GO GO - RUN RUN RUN to Restaurant Martin, you will be in for a treat!
