Anna and I headed to Santa Fe, specifically to Canyon Road (see previous post On the Road in New Mexico: Canyon Road Stroll), to celebrate her birthday. We couldn’t think of a better place or way to do it than to have lunch at El Farol, Santa Fe’s oldest restaurant—and one of our personal favorites. (see http://www.elfarolsf.com/) Nestled at the top end of the street in a rustic 1835 adobe, El Farol offers the tastes of Spain, Mexico and Santa Fe.
As we enjoyed our wonderful food, Anna shared stories of her younger years when she would come to El Farol to dance into the wee hours of the night. Now she is content to stay, most nights, in Truchas enjoying a quiet country life. Ah, the beauty of a little aging, right?
El Farol is known for its Flamenco Dinner Shows every Saturday night and other artful entertainment. Here’s a sampling of what they have to offer.
You locals already know about El Farol. I’m not telling you anything new. But for those of you who are visiting from afar, I’d like to recommend that you make plans to enjoy lunch or dinner and some Flamenco at El Farol. You won’t be sorry you did.
Love to you all,
