I recently photographed Pasqual's for an upcoming issue of Edible Santa Fe. This assignment stood out for many reasons, but mainly because this is my favorite restaurant in New Mexico. It's a big statement, I know. The red chile here is unmatched, which is saying something in this neck of the woods, and the coffee at Pasqual's is Europe good. Photo subjects below include chef/owner Katherine Kagel, Smoked Trout Hash (my favorite dish), and the sublime Carta de Musica Salad, which comes with fresh local figs, prosciutto and an amazing buffalo mozzarella.
