La Boca on Marcy Santa fe tapas has been a charmer for years, a fave of ours before going to see Santa fe tapas in Santa Fe, but Chef Caruso's new Taberna la Boca in the old Carlos' Gospel Cafe space is outstanding and just feels so comfy. A trio of us spent three hours at the taverna space on Sunday evening, trying plate after plate and glass after glass. The service was outstanding: Every plate we tried was very good we started out by ordering one of everything, and then went back for some favoritesand some were just wonderful.
Same with the wines Taberna's beer selection is a little light - a good local Marble pilsner and a Mexican hilariously labled "Spanish" Dos Equis dark lager - both served in inappropriate pint ale glasses, by the way.
And the half-off prices during happy hour wind up being just amazingly low. This might be the best value in Santa Fe right now. No reservations and it fills up, so get there early and enjoy your evening. The food was really interesting, prepared well, delicious and reasonably priced. One of the hardest tables to get in Santa Feso reserve early.
A little crowded, but what would you expect in a tapas format? We had never been to Santa Fe, NM, so we went. Santa fe tapas the city very much. We tried a number of restaurants to get a flavor of New Mexican foods. Being from San Antonio, we knew that the foods, especially the chilies and the spices, would be Santa fe tapas.
We tried La Boca, as it was highly recommended.
The food was very good. Although, the theme was Spanish, there was a local flavor to it. Prices were reasonable, service was good and the atmosphere was lively. Ask the wait staff to help with your selections and you will be rewarded. Try it for sure. But, also try the Chocolate Maven for breakfast or lunch.
