ELLE Escapes: Santa Fe

Santa Fe, which translates directly to “Santa Fe” in Spanish, is not only the oldest state capital in the United States, but also the highest altitude. But once you descend from the mountains and into the bustling downtown area, you’ll find art galleries, museums, and shops selling unique finds that will have everyone back home asking, “Where did you get that?” ?” (So ​​it’s no surprise that Santa Fe is part of UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network.) Known as much for its adobe-style architecture as it is for its incredible food and people, the city has all the makings of a fun getaway, not to mention effortless. provides the backdrop for highly coveted Instagram photos. We recently had the pleasure of cruising around Santa Fe in Lexus’ new ultra-luxury LX 600 SUV, equipped with Apple CarPlay, a heated steering wheel, 25(!) speakers, and massaging rear seats (yes, you read that right). This is what we saw and where to eat, drink and sleep.

Geronimo is an award-winning restaurant for good reason. First, the food: an eclectic menu in the New American style, with the 72-hour Sous Vide Short Ribs definitely standing out. Second, its location in a 1700s-era adobe home. Third, is the celebrity clientele (Bob Odenkirk’s Best Caul Saulwhich is filmed locally, sat at the next table).

Head to Cafe Pasqual’s in another adobe for a hearty and delicious breakfast (think: burritos, quesadillas, chorizo ​​scramble) served until 3 pm or lunch (sandwiches on a skewer… no no). Expect the wait either way, but it’s worth it, especially a slice of home-baked Blum’s Coffee Crunch triple-layer cake.
