The Shed opened in 1953 and has been family-run by three generations; as such, it has become an institution in Santa Fe dining. Located on Palace Avenue, just blocks from the plaza, the 1692 adobe hacienda is divided into nine unique rooms filled with Rivera-style artwork and accents of red, blue, and yellow. Locals come to the Shed for the red chile, which is made from daily ground local chiles. Options include the number five enchilade plate: two rolled enchiladas of blue corn tortillas filled with cheddar, topped with red chile, and served with pinto beans, posole, and garlic bread.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
