We have dined in both La Boca and its sister restaurant just behind it, La Taverna. They share the same kitchen and the menus are very similar, perhaps the same. La Boca is the fancier white table cloth one, while La Taverna is more casual and a bit easier to get seated without a reservation. La Boca definitely requires a rez, and don't be late, as you will lose your table. We found the tapas to be uniformly excellent, some more ample than others. Most can be shared by two, but large parties will require extra orders if all wish to share the same choice. We tried many different items on our visits, so I will not go into each one, but I will say that we were not disappointed with any of our choices. The wine and sherry list is also excellent and extensive; and the bar also served a couple of very nice and refreshing specialty cocktails. Of the two I would prefer La Boca, as it is a bit more intimate, but both are convivial and friendly. An extra plus on our last visit was that Chef James Caruso was meeting and greeting guests; he was friendly and engaging, and I had a somewhat lengthy conversation with him at the bar after our meal. We left extremely satisfied, and these restaurants will be a requisite stop on any vist to Santa Fe. Do not miss this one.
