As a rich, cultural center, the Taos dining is nearly on parr with its exceptional arts, crafts and jewelry. Of course like the beautiful art and jewelry, the Taos dining scene is solidly rooted in Southwest and Mexican cuisine. If exceptional, authentic Mexican fare is high on your “favorites list” then there’s few place that can beat the Taos dining scene.
If you’re looking for cuisine firmly rooted in local Northern New Mexican, then a reservation at EL Meze on Paseo del Pueblo Norte is in high order. El Meze features local mountain fish, game and produce. Chef Frederick Muller’s menu features simple, rustic items that combine all the cultural influences in Taos: Spanish, Native American, Anglo and even Arabic.
Taos is home to a host of authentic New Mexican and traditional Mexican joints, like La Cueva Café, Ranchos Plaza Grill and Antonio’s, as well as handful of European and Mediterranean-inspired establishments, like Gutiz and Byzantium. All range in price from $10 to $50, but the vast majority of these menu’s feature items sub $20, which is sure to please budget-conscious. Foodies and those with a flare for new tastes and ideas will delight in the high quality, innovation and culture.
