Hotels for Food Lovers
Encantado, Santa Fe, NM
Charles Dale (an F&W Best New Chef 1995) brings a yogic calm to the kitchen at the hotel’s signature restaurant. “It has nothing to do with asanas and everything to do with focus and intention,” explains Dale, who happens to be a fan of the Bikram yoga classes at Encantado’s 10,000-square-foot spa. Dale cooks Southwestern-style farm-to-table food at the AvroKO-designed restaurant, Terra, from a slow-cooked and superindulgent suckling pig to a healthy barbecued-salmon sandwich. encantadoresort.com.
