This is a good spot for lunch or dinner, especially on warm days when you can dine outside under an umbrella in the attractive but protected patio overlooking historic Water Street. Inside, the dining room looks like an upscale New Mexico cafe should look, with large windows, wood tables and chairs, tile floors, and light-colored walls decorated with New Mexico art. The restaurant is known for its fajitas—chicken, steak, portobello mushroom, shrimp, or a surf and turf—served with grilled onions and bell peppers, spicy salsa, sour cream, guacamole, cheese, and to wrap it all up in, a warm flour tortilla. The flatiron steak melt is also good, grilled to order, topped with roasted green chile and asadero cheese, and served with a cheese enchilada. Had enough spicy northern New Mexico food for a while? Then there’s the fish and chips, dipped in a red ale batter and served with fries and jicama-lime slaw; or the basic brewery burger, hand-pattied Angus beef served on a brioche bun with a choice of sides. There’s also a surprisingly good selection of salads. The cafe’s sister restaurant, the Blue Corn Brewery, with a somewhat different menu, is reviewed below.
