For one week, each February, Santa Fe's culinary scene shows off in a flavorful and affordable way.  Santa Fe Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to indulge and taste the flavors of all your favorite meals around town. You'll also find new favorites as you explore the choices. This delectable week begins February 18, 2018 and feasting continues through February 25, 2018.

Indulge in a Three-Course Meal during Restaurant Week

Santa Fe Restaurant Week is eight days of flavor packed goodness, keeping your stomach and your wallet full. How? The event requires Santa Fe restaurants to create three course meals at reasonable prices. Depending on the restaurant, you will find meals priced at $15, $25, $35 or $45 per person.  You won’t find deals like this the rest of the year. Remember, Santa Fe’s great food can be savored anytime and any day in Santa Fe.

It is time to prepare your taste buds for this year’s Restaurant Week.  You’ll be amazed at the number of Santa Fe restaurants participating. We wish we could sample them all, but there are so many (56 at the time of this writing) and not enough time in one week. Our suggestion: create a list of participating restaurants you have wanted to try. Then go out and taste as many flavors of Santa Fe during Restaurant Week as you can. That’s not a tall order.
