The less formal sister restaurant of Santa Fe Spanish stalwart La Boca, the Taberna is a relaxed-yet-upscale Iberian tavern with an outdoor patio. True to its heritage, it's one of the few places in town open late. Good thing, then, that the tapas are tasty, from shellfish stew to remolatxa, a roasted beet salad with a pomegranate-orange vinaigrette. There's a great cheese list and an extensive selection of beer, Spanish wines, and sherries. Pick a glass of wine from the enticing bottles in the rack behind the bar. It can get crowded, especially during happy hour (5 to 7pm nightly), but find an open spot at the long wooden bar and grab it—you'll be glad you did.
