Less than 10 minutes from the Santa Fe plaza, Tesuque Village is a lush oasis of grassy fields, leafy orchards and sculpture gardens. The Cottonwood lined drive is home to the historic El Nido building. While embracing it's colorful history, El Nido opens it's doors as a fresh, innovative new restaurant.
Led by executive chef Cristian Pontiggia, the dining experience is influenced by the rhythm of the seasons, local products and the culinary techniques of Italy. The dining room features an energetic open kitchen with a wood-burning oven and an open-fire grill taking center stage. Pastas are hand crafted daily and our pizzas are fresh takes on the classics. Meats, fish, and vegetables are kissed by fire over open embers, celebrating the Italian tradition of cooking "alla"brace". The burning of seasonal wood creates layers of flavor and produces a satisfying char. Sit at the chef's counter and you may get a special sample from Chef Pontiggia.
