Named for the pink hue of its 350-year-old adobe walls, the Pink Adobe has been a local favorite since it was opened by New Orleans transplant Rosalea Murphy in 1944. Each of several small dining rooms has its own kiva fireplace, and the hand-carved wood furnishings and heavy log vigas add to the building’s historic charm. In typical northern New Mexico fashion, even some traditional American dishes get spiced up a bit, such as the grilled salmon, which is prepared with chile. The restaurant’s most popular (and most expensive) selection, Steak Dunigan, is a charbroiled 13-ounce New York strip, topped with sautéed mushrooms and, of course, green chile. Looking for traditional northern New Mexico cuisine? Try the Plato Mexicano, a filling sampler that includes a cheese enchilada, chile relleno, and chicken taco, with red or green chile, rice, posole, and pinto beans. The chile served here is extra hot; if in doubt, ask for a sample before ordering. The restaurant’s signature dessert is hot French apple pie topped with rum hard sauce. The Pink Adobe’s Dragon Room Bar is a real local hangout.
