El Farol

Shockwaves rattled Santa Fe last spring when David Salazar, longtime owner of El Farol, announced he was putting the Canyon Road establishment on the market. He'd been the proprietor of City Different's oldest bar for three and a half decades; who could do the Canyon Road landmark justice?

Slovakia Meets Santa Fe

Morning is Annamaria O'Brien's favorite time of day: The quiet serenity and solitude of an empty kitchen, where she can craft pastries and other baked goods. Luckily (for both her and Santa Fe as a whole), she now has the space in which to do just that.

Paris, 1765: A man by the name of Boulanger-first name unknown-dreamt of turning his passion for food into a career.

Football and Fiestas

Fall might not officially start until tomorrow, but any football fan will tell you differently: we're heading into the fourth weekend of college ball and the third weekend of NFL games.

Spooky Scary Pumpkins
