Located in the luxury resort La Posada de Santa Fe, Fuego restaurant looks like a high-end hacienda, with tall, dark-wood-beamed ceilings, iron chandeliers, tapestries hanging from the walls and a roaring oversized fireplace. The dining patio has a fountain with a fire feature in the center. The New American menu is seasonal but most items pull from the local bounty. Try the duck breast confit, stuffed with almonds, cherries, and cheese, wrapped in bacon, and served with potatoes and ramps. Their Sunday brunch is popular, with a la carte menu options like a seafood and brie omelet.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
