Restaurant Martin in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was the best place we ate during our recent long trip west. It's classified as "progressive American cuisine," and the chef-owner, Martin Rios, is a longterm resident of Santa Fe who was born in Guadalajara. The location is outside the main tourist area, but in easy walking distance of the central hotels. I was too busy to document our meal there at the time, but now I want to show some of the beautiful and delicious dishes we ate there, in a very charming and relaxing outdoor setting.
|Roasted asparagus. The menu offers a very elaborate asparagus dish as a|
first course, but I requested asparagus only, which is technically a side dish.
|Chilled pea and mint soup with various garnishes.|
|Duck breast with various vegetables on a bed of duck confit.|
|Dessert: panna cotta with fruit and sorbet.|
