Raton to Sante Fe via Hwy 64

Traveling from CO to ABQ tomorrow. I am wondering how much time this more scenic route would add to our drive and if it's worth it. Plan to drop into Santa Fe in time for dinner (Old Town?). Restaurant recs are appreciated. N.M. cuisine, tapas, or brewpub are fine.

Raton to Santa Fe via I25 is about 2.5 hours, if you go on Hwy64, then I would add another 2 hours of driving plus any time you spend in Taos. Beautiful drive.

In Santa Fe you want to look for places to eat near the Plaza (the historic center of SF) or in the Railyard area. Plenty of restaurants, but I would make reservations as this is Indian Market weekend, the busiest time of the year! NM Cuisine at The Shed, La Plazuela, Tomasitas, Del Charro. Tapas at El Farol, El Meson, La Boca. Brewpub Blue Corn Cafe, Second St Brewery.
