The Gorge in Taos, NM

This is a great new restaurant, brought to you by the same team of Roessler twins that have made Season's, Zinc and Savoy staples in Albuquerque. These guys know how to appeal to a wide spectrum of diners through quality control and attention to detail with their amazing spaces. Gorge is no exception. The food is simple enough, but not ordinary. It was a great trip up North for me and the family, who got to tag along for this assignment. If you find yourself in Taos and have kids, check out what I consider New Mexico's #1 toy store: Twirl
