There’s no better time of the year to experience the incredible culinary prowess of our city at such great prices. For the 10 days of Santa Fe Restaurant Week, establishments across town create delectable dining experiences with prix-fixe dinners that represent their offerings as a whole.

Restaurants choose to charge $15, $25, $35, or $45 per person depending on the location. Over half of the featured dining establishments on the list also offer value-priced lunch options if you’re looking to participate in the afternoon instead of the evening!

Along with a delicious array of lunches and dinners, Santa Fe Restaurant Week also brings incredible culinary events to the city. These events provide guests and residents with opportunities to learn some new tricks and skills to apply to your cooking at home. You can also meet talented chefs and mixologists.
