A Culinary Homage to Grandmother
After helming two restaurants in Los Angeles, it’s all about a native Santa Fe chef John Sedlar’s return to his grandmother’s New Mexican food at Eloisa. The cheery, minimal and brick-exposed space serves as a temple for savory empanditas, sopes, tamales, posole, made-daily fresh masa for tortillas, and the creative jicama and guacamole tacos with flower petals. To sip, tequila and mezcal cocktails are compliments of Dede Roybal's bar genius. You won’t be disappointed. All dishes are expertly and artistically plated. Afterwards, stretch your legs walking around downtown Santa Fe—the locale couldn’t be any more convenient.
