(El Prado is just a few miles north of Taos in an historic building) This restaurant's food reflects the Moorish influence on Spanish and therefore northern New Mexican cuisine. Chef Frederick Muller turns out masterpieces that are both delicious and interesting. Our group of four had several of the tapas and entrees and each was outstanding. A tamale of buffalo meat and red chili was perfection and the buffalo ribs were wonderful. Annette, who works the front of the house, also makes a divine lavender creme brulee. The wine list is limited, but all the wines are good. The service was excellent and all the personnel knowledgeable about the menu.
