The choices for good food and good music are few a far between for the folks that live in the Eldorado area. We have a handful of good restaurants to choose from. Once you've been through them and want something different, you have to drive into Santa Fe. Now the Legal Tender gives you a great reason to stay a little longer in the Eldorado area before making that drive.
The Legal Tender restaurant is located in an old historic building in the old historic village of Lamy. It was built in 1881 as a general store. You can taste the Old West along with the great food.
The menu is eclectic and tasty. There's a little BBQ, a little New Mexican and a little New American cuisine all thrown in together. And i's all good. (Try the Chicken Livers under the Starter section of the menu...yum!)
On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 9pm, you can have some live music and do some two-steppin' with your meal.
And keep an eye out for special events. Last summer they did a crawfish boil and that was a big hit with the locals.
They are only open Thursday through Sunday, so plan accordingly.
