When my family lived near Santa Fe, we often enjoyed lunch or dinner at The Shed. It was the first Santa Fe restaurant we experienced after moving to New Mexico. Now that we live in Colorado, our trips back to New Mexico are never complete without eating at The Shed. The restaurant has developed its own style of New Mexico cuisine and consistently serves these dishes to loyal locals and many visitors. Red chile, blue corn tortillas and posole are signature tastes and appearances of the lunch and dinner dishes. Soups, salads and starters can make a light lunch or a suitable prelude to entrees including turkey or chicken sandwiches, burgers, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, carne adovada, huevos rancheros and combination plates. Dinner includes most of the lunch choices plus several chicken dishes. There’s enough variety to try different meals, although some patrons are known to order their same favorite meal over and over again. The Shed does not chase the latest, trendy southwest cuisine; instead it serves their tried and true creations. Our family had a tradition of going to The Shed for lunch on New Year’s Eve afternoon, where we often watched snow falling outside. The restaurant is very popular, especially during ski and summer tourist seasons.
